While rapper Travis Scott didn’t make a lot of noise on the real estate market so far — other than going halfsies with ex Kylie Jenner on the $13.5 million purchase of a Beverly Hills mansion, which they still co-own — he’s now holding all the headlines with his newest purchase.
The Astronomical rapper just dropped a cool $23.5 million (IN CASH) on a massive mansion in the ritzy Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, Variety reports. And if you think that’s a steep price to pay, know that the newly built home had initially been listed for a hefty $42 million.
What makes Travis Scott’s new house command such mindboggling prices? The 17,000-square-foot futuristic mansion is perched high atop the Los Angeles hills, and packs pretty much every luxury amenity you could think off (and some that wouldn’t even cross your mind, like an underwater sound system for the infinity pool).
A party-ready mammoth designed with wellness in mind
With a luxury yacht-inspired design, the property has been envisioned by Southern California-based architectural firm de Loren & Associates with an emphasis on wellness standards.
When it was first listed back in 2019, the all-star agent team in charge of marketing it touted the mansion as “a true triumph in design, crafted for its residents and guests to live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy special moments,” Santiago Arana, Managing Partner at The Agency said at the time. Arana, alongside The Agency founder and CEO, Mauricio Umanski, were the original listing agents. At the time of the sale, Fredrik Eklund and Marcy Roth at Douglas Elliman held the listing.
And while the wellness aspect is showcased heavily throughout the property, there’s no denying that Travis Scott’s new house is a party monster.
The house boasts seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and three powder rooms across three levels. It comes with a massive list of upscale amenities, including a 610-bottle wine cellar, a movie theater, state-of-the-art gym, a 300 sq. ft. green wall and a lower-level entertainment area with a full bar, pool table and much more.
To add to the flair of the property, renowned Japanese artist Toshi Kawabata created three custom pieces for the home including a rather unique curved walnut bar. All marble elements were hand-selected and imported from Italy.
But don’t let the special attention given to the interiors fool you; the outdoor area is equally impressive, with its 10,000-square-foot garden featuring a 75-foot infinity edge pool that overlooks the hills — and that has a killer underwater sound system for Scott to blast music during his pool parties.
For more relaxing activities, there’s also a Jacuzzi, a tranquil 400-square-foot Zen garden, and a stunning water wall designed by Mario Romano.
Naturally, the outdoor space offers plenty of entertaining and dining space, so Scott will likely throw some memorable parties in his new home. When it comes to parking, his guests can either use the three-car enclosed garage or the outdoor motor court that fits more than 15 cars.
Travis Scott, by his real name Jacques Berman Webster II, is a massively successful rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer, whose musical style has often been described as a fusion of traditional hip hop, lo-fi and ambient. By 2020, the artist sold over 45 million certified records in the US alone, and has nabbed six Grammy Award nominations and won a Bilboard Music Award.
On a personal level, Scott had been dating reality star/entrepreneur Kylie Jenner, and the two share a daughter named Stormi; while their relationship ended in September of last year, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner have often been spotted together lately, sparking rumors of their reconciliation. And if you find that unlikely to happen, know that Jenner lives in Holmby Hills, which is just a short drive away from Scott’s mansion in Brentwood.
