Travis Scott Buys $23.5 Million Brentwood Mansion
Click here to read the full article.
Even though he refers to the exclusive community of Hidden Hills in his song "Butterfly Effect", the Houston-born rapper, the reigning sneaker tycoon and Fortnite record breaker Jacques Webster - better known as Travis Scott - seems to prefer to live in Brentwood, LA Neighborhood where he threw $ 23.5 million on a colossal hilltop house with panoramic views of the entire city, and his neighbors include LeBron James and Petra Ecclestone.
The 16,700 square foot tier of a mansion was designed and built by speculation from the father-daughter team of De Loren & Associates and has 7 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms on three floors with ultra-modern living space. But unlike most other contemporary villas, the architecture of the house is not a typical Lego-like box. Rather, it is wrapped in smoothly curved sheet metal, which according to the listing material should remind you of the lines of a "modern yacht".

The house, which was originally offered with a $ 42 million price tag last summer, underwent two significant price cuts and a brokerage change before Scott, who paid the full $ 23.5 million purchase price in cash, added . While this figure is a significant discount on initial demand, it is still one of the largest deals recently closed on the LA luxury real estate market, which has been significantly impacted by the chaos caused by corona viruses.
The house is at the very end of a semi-isolated cul-de-sac and is completely invisible from the street. It is located far below the street level and the neighboring houses. The driveway drops steeply to the roof of the house - where there are parking spaces a dozen or more vehicles - and from there into the dark guts of the mansion, where there is a 20-car garage.
In the glass front door of the building, guests are greeted by a floor-to-ceiling walnut sculpture designed by master Japanese carpenter Toshi Kawabata, opposite a 12-foot "green wall" that acts as a natural air purifier. In addition, a fully open main level consists of a single large room with a bar, a fireplace, and various seating and dining areas, as well as an adjoining kitchen made of decadent black marble, equipped with custom Gaggenau appliances.
The lower level of the house is dedicated to recreation and entertainment. It has a fitness room, a sauna, a theater with 15 seats and a large bar counter area as well as a glazed, temperature-controlled wine cabinet, which has been reported to hold up to 650 bottles. Directly under the outdoor pool is the property's game room, which is currently equipped with a table tennis table made by the designer.
Upstairs there are two junior master suites on the penthouse floor - one of which is probably used by the already mega-famous Stormi Webster, Scott's daughter - and a hedonistic owner's suite with two cupboards, a spa-style bathtub and a balcony with a view all over Los Angeles.
Although treacherous on an almost steep cliff, the house still has extensive outdoor entertainment areas and all the necessary leisure facilities. There's an outdoor kitchen, poolside cabana, outdoor dining decks, and a 75-foot infinity pool that serves the triumphant final touch of the palace's hit song.
Scott's current residence is a $ 13.5 million mansion in Benedict Canyon, Los Angeles, which he still owns with his ex-girlfriend Kylie Jenner. Given his Brentwood upgrade - and the fact that Jenner moved to their new $ 36.5 million villa in Holmby Hills - it's very likely the couple will try that in the near future, no more outsource the required “starter” house.
Fredrik Eklund and Marcy Roth from Douglas Elliman kept the listing; Carl Gambino of Compass repeated Scott.
