Tyler, The Creator, a name synonymous with innovation, creativity, and sheer talent, has not only made waves with his groundbreaking tracks but also through his impressive forays into fashion and entrepreneurship.

With two Grammy Awards under his belt and a net worth that’s the envy of many, it’s only fitting that Tyler’s living situation mirrors his larger-than-life persona.

Set in the lush, exclusive neighborhood of Bel Air, California, Tyler, The Creator’s house is a sprawling mansion that screams luxury and showcases Tyler’s unique sense of style. And it’s a significant upgrade from the rapper’s previous abode — set nearby.

That’s right, the hip-hop heavyweight, who’s also a founding member of the rap collective Odd Future is now a real-life Prince of Bel Air (and the spot was right open, as the OG Fresh Prince, Will Smith, lives in Calabasas).

He recently traded a $7 million, one-story residence originally built in 1965 for a distinctly modern, three-story home (with an endless list of amenities) also located in Bel Air. And, just in case you were wondering where Tyler, The Creator lives nowadays, we’re here to give you a closer look at his home upgrade.

The house at a glance

Fresh off the heels of his launch of a deluxe re-release of his Grammy Award-winning album, Call Me If You Get Lost: The Estate Sale, Tyler — by his real name, Tyler Gregory Okonma — splurged on a $13 million mansion in the ritzy Bel Air neighborhood.

Tucked away on a woodsy parcel sitting on almost an acre of land, Tyler paid $2 million less than the asking price for his newly renovated (or rather, rebuilt) property.

The house had been listed for sale in November 2022 for $15,000,000 and Tyler purchased it three months later, with public records showing that the sale went through right before Valentine’s Day on February 14, 2023, giving himself a grand self-gift that rivals the best box of chocolates.

And the property isn’t just your regular house; it’s a 5,000-square-foot modern marvel sitting on nearly an acre of prime Bel Air land.

With 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and an open floor plan that seamlessly merges indoor and outdoor living, the property is a dream come true for anyone with a penchant for the finer things in life. Swipe through the photos to see inside Tyler’s house:

Completely rebuilt one year before Tyler purchased it, the three-level house replaced another three-story structure built in the early 1970s, meaning the WusYaName singer is basically living in a newly built home.

Designed with an eye for contemporary elegance and a nod to rustic charm, the mansion boasts breathtaking views of the city and ocean, making every moment in this house an experience in itself.

From the custom Brazilian wood floors with a white oak finish to the steel case windows that frame the stunning vistas outside, every detail in Tyler’s home has been curated to offer not just comfort but a statement of luxury.

The inclusion of a step-up cigar lounge and a formal living room adds layers of sophistication, making the house not just a living space but a venue for artistic inspiration and high-end entertainment.

Standout amenities for the modern music mogul

But what sets Tyler, The Creator’s Bel Air mansion apart are the amenities that cater to every conceivable luxury.

Let the property’s former real estate agent, Ben Bacal — who held the listing alongside his colleague Rachael Williams from Revel Real Estate — give you the gist of things in this quick video tour posted on his Instagram profile when the house was first listed:

The saltwater swimming pool is a centerpiece of the outdoor area, perfect for those sunny California days.

For movie enthusiasts and cinephiles, the state-of-the-art movie theater offers an immersive experience without ever needing to step outside.

Health and wellness are also a priority, with a dry sauna available for a detoxifying session after a long day. The expansive wood deck, complete with a fire pit, full bar, and gas grill, ensures that entertaining guests is always a breeze, providing a perfect blend of ambiance and amenities for any gathering.

In a world where privacy is a luxury, this property, hidden behind private gates and surrounded by a tranquil woodsy setting, offers a serene escape from the hustle and bustle, giving the Grammy Award-winning rapper the much-needed privacy he deserves.

Yet, it’s the home’s tech-driven features, from the sophisticated smart home controls to the luxury of an 8-car parking space, that underscore Tyler’s penchant for the cutting edge.

The other Bel Air home Tyler sold

Tyler, The Creator’s decision to snap up another Bel Air mansion doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as the Igor rapper has long been calling the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood home.

Prior to his $13 million manse purchase, Tyler owned another Bel-Air abode, a lovely mid-century home with contemporary interiors — which he listed for sale in late 2022 for $7 million.

The single-story home was built in 1965, but heavily updated sometime in the 1950s.

Sporting 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a large living room with a fireplace, a huge primary bedroom with two walk-in closets, and a home theatre, the house clearly wasn’t a good fit for the Call Me If You Get Lost rapper.

Less than a year after purchasing it, Tyler listed that property at a loss (he paid $7.9 million for it just 12 months prior).

Hopefully, he’s now found the right fit with his new $13 million Bel Air abode.
