Celebrity Homes // Rapper Nas drops $3.5M on Calabasas Estate

The structure, which is a sort of Mediterranean-meets-Southwestern architectural mashup, was custom built in 2007 and includes four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms spread across more than 6,500 square feet of living space rife with soaring ceilings, arched doorways, and limestone floors, and was originally listed for $2.5 million. These characteristics, as well as the property’s 10+ acres of land, drew a bidding war.

Nas’ new home is secluded and surrounded by picturesque mountain vistas, resting beyond a long driveway and protected by gates and security cameras. The multilevel house is greeted by a double-height foyer with a wrought-iron staircase flanked by a spacious motorcourt flanked by an eight-car garage. Steps lead to the main level, which features a fireplace living room with built-in bookshelves and glass sliders that open onto a terrace. There’s a gourmet kitchen with a center island, Viking appliances, granite countertops, a breakfast nook, and butler’s pantry, as well as a fireplaced family room, formal dining room, and office.

A large wine cellar with tasting area and a billiards room with a wet bar are among the home’s other notable features. A luxurious master suite includes a two-way fireplace, sitting room, private balcony, dual walk-in closets, a separate gym, and a spa-like bath with a jetted soaking tub and steam shower. Outdoors, there’s an al fresco dining patio with a built-in barbecue, as well as a grotto-style pool with a spa, waterfall, and water slide. The icing on the cake is a rooftop deck with panoramic views that stretch for miles.
