Location, location, location is all Kanye West has had on his mind prior to purchasing a massive ranch in Wyoming. The cowboy state may not seem like the perfect fit for West, but each to their own right?
What does $14 million buys one in Cody, Wyoming you might be asking. If sources are to believed apparently this sizable bit of cash has landed the 42-year-old a little more than 4,500 acres of land!
Along with dazzling views of the surrounding Rocky Mountains and just a short 52-mile trip to Yellowstone National Park.
This is going to be a family home
A-list celebrities are known for their extensive property portfolios which come standard with holiday homes, summer homes, winter homes and “I need some time away from the spotlight” homes.
But West is not simply looking for an occasional retreat into the country. He has arrived, he has purchased, he is bringing his family and he plans to stay.
Family being his wife Kim Kardashian-West and four children North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. The star has even already started the hunt for the perfect schools for his children.
Kim had dropped some hints
While West may pride himself on his ability to shock his fans and adversaries alike, this upcoming move to Wyoming is not as out-of-the-blue as people might think.
Vogue Arabia did a cover story on Kim back in September when she not only hinted at the move but basically called it a done deal.
During her interview, she went on to say that she can certainly see herself and her family living in Wyoming, on a ranch in as little as 10 years. It seems like 10 years in Kardashian time is not the same as Georgian years.
Wyoming may seem like the most arbitrary of choices for the family, but they have their reasons. In 2018, Kanye was working on wrapping up an album is none other than Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
His family obviously came to visit him during this time and it was reported that they were truly happy in this place.
Kim did not stay with him for the duration of his stay there but she did fly up a couple of times and even Kim herself noted that Kanye was happy in this environment.
She elaborated further by saying that she is happy to see him putting so much energy and dedication into his music as opposed to getting involved in inflammatory online disputes.
How does the ranch measure up?
Kim and Kanye have stayed in and owned their fair share of incredible and expensive property. Their current residence is a sizeable property in Hidden Hills, California.
They bought this place in 2014 for the staggering price of $20 million. According to Kim, this place was not only desirable due to its size and opulence but also because it was in close proximity to her mother’s house.
They also used to own a place in Bel Air which fetched a decent $17.8 million when it was sold in 2017.
