Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly bought an $11 million mansion in a gated, private community of Bel Air, Calif., according to a Tuesday report by TMZ.
This slide show will take you on a virtual tour of their palatial digs, located at 11790 Southampton Court in the exclusive Bel Air Crest neighborhood, according to photos on the real estate listing website Elite LA Homes, which depict the mansion named as their new pad in the TMZ article.
Elite LA Homes still lists the massive house as being for sale after a scant 35 days on the market despite the news that Kimye are apparently moving in, but the listing has not been updated since Dec. 14. The listed price tag for the mansion, which was built in 2010, is a cool $10.75 million -- that's a lot of record sales for West and reality TV bucks for Kardashian.
The listing site includes an in-depth breakdown of the home's impressive amenities and is accompanied by the following description:

"New Tuscan Mediterranean Estate located on a premier 3/4 acre parcel with expansive private grassy yard and peaceful vista views. Magnificent two-story entrance with black walnut parquet floors, cathedral living room with stone fireplace. The great room with beamed ceiling features a bar w/leaded windows, fireplace and wine cellar. The gourmet custom kitchen flows to the rear yard with an 800 sq ft pavilion and BBQ. An elevator to the second floor with elegant Master suite, balconies, and serene views. Quality craftsmanship complete this new home located in the 24 hr gated, guarded community of Bel Air Crest."
The 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom home rings in at 9,000 square feet and sits on a palatial 37,765-square-foot lot with breathtaking views of the surrounding canyon.
But the amenities listed online are apparently not good enough for the couple, as sources tell TMZ that Kimye are gutting the home to replace it with a 14,000-square-foot monstrosity to be outfitted "with a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pool."
The home will likely be the future home of West and Kardashian's baby, as the rapper announced on New Year's Eve that girlfriend Kardashian is pregnant. And they will be surrounded by celebrities once the work is done and they move in, as TMZ reports that their new neighbors include Jennifer Aniston, Chris Paul and Joe Francis.
Kanye West is one of the most popular rappers on the planet, with hit songs ranging from "Gold Digger" and "Stronger" to "Heartless" and "E.T." He was the third-highest-selling artist of the first decade of the new millennium, according to Billboard.
Kim Kardashian rose to fame as the star of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," a hit reality TV show on the E! television network that turned her and other key members of the Kardashian clan into household names.
And their star keeps rising, as their new $11 million mansion was one of the most-talked-about celebrity stories of the day on Tuesday.
