If you're looking for a place to crash at Coachella next year, we may have found your answer: Kris Jenner recently snapped up an ultra`modern mansion in the middle of Coachella Valley for a cool $12 million, and the expansive single-story house seems to be ideal for entertaining large crowds, given its ample space and breath-taking views. The home, which the Desert Sun says is “likely” the most expensive single family home in the area, previously belonged to luxury property developer Gala Asher and L.A.-based Caldwell Banker real estate broker Ginger Glass. Asher and Glass purchased the property in May 2015 for $2.15 million and then proceeded to oversee the renovation of the estate into a sleek, unique architectural wonder. The house was put on the market this past June for $15 million.
The house spans 11,000 square feet of indoor living space and 3,500 square feet of outdoor living space, with enough rooms for the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan to host an impromptu family reunion. In all, there are seven bedrooms—three master suites and four guest suites—and eight full and two half bathrooms. The entirety of the mansion is arranged around a secured courtyard with two fire areas and four fake trees wrapped in twinkling lights, with several of the bedrooms leading out directly onto the courtyard. The home also features four masonry fireplaces, three other oversized fire areas, a comprehensive home automation system, automated shears and blackout shades for the windows, and a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system throughout the whole property.
The main living area of the home also doubles as its entertainment space, which is essentially an extremely high-ceilinged, open layout combination living and dining room that resembles a ballroom. There are multiple lounging areas within the space, as well as a party-sized wet bar and a number of statement-making chandeliers; one particularly notable one very closely resembles a whole line of ice cubes dangling over the long dining room table. One end of the cavernous entertainment space is lined with an entire wall of glass sliders that open out onto a west-facing loggia that runs the full length of the house. Out on the loggia itself, the home is equipped with built-in ceiling heaters for chillier winter nights, as well as several different outdoor lounge and dining areas. Beyond the covered portion of the loggia is a 100-foot-long infinity-edged swimming pool and spa that reflects the vast mountain landscape surrounding the home. An impressive fire pit off to one side helps to add further charm to the space.
In addition to Jenner’s most recent real-estate purchase, the reality television matriarch owns a number of luxury condos and mansions in the Los Angeles area, including a two-bedroom, four-bathroom condo in Century City; three upscale condos in the same Calabasas complex; a $9.9 million brand-new farmhouse-inspired mansion directly across the street from daughter Kim Kardashian’s Hidden Hills complex; and the Hidden Hills mansion that she previously shared with ex-husband Bruce Jenner.
