Kanye “Ye” West, whose business empire has suffered major fallout amid the star’s ongoing anti-Semitic outbursts, is selling a Malibu estate he purchased in late 2021 for $57.3 million in an off-market deal.

Designed by Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Ando, ​​the home features a concrete exterior in keeping with the famous architect’s minimalist Brutalist spirit. During the dozens of months that Yee owned the property, the musician and designer gutted the home’s interiors, leaving it essentially ruined.

Now, instead of renovating the four-bedroom beachfront home on Malibu Road, Yee has decided to sell it for $53 million (he listed it at a loss).

“What we’re missing is the interiors,” says Jason Oppenheim of the Oppenheim Group, who is exclusively showcasing the home, estimating that the new owner would need to spend several million dollars to redesign the home’s interior. “Its price reflects the need to replace the interior finishes. On the positive side, it can be brought up to 2024 standards, having been built about 10 years ago.

What’s important, Oppenheim adds, is that the concrete exterior remains intact. “The architectural integrity of Tadao Ando’s work exists today,” he says Sunset sale Al-Najm Real Estate Brokerage. “He’s pretty much known for his concrete work, and the big cost of this house is the concrete work.”

The approximately 4,000-square-foot house is made of about 1,200 tons of concrete with 200 tons of rebar and 12 large columns set 60 feet deep in the sand. It features 1,500 square feet of outdoor deck space and ocean views from every room.
