Kris Jenner Picks Up Ultra-Modern Desert Mansion

location: La Quinta, Calif.
price: $12 million
size: 11,000+ square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half bathrooms

Word on the Coachella Valley celebrity real estate street is that Kardashian/Jenner family matriarch Kris Jenner shelled out $12 million for an ultra-modern mansion overlooking the lush and unnaturally verdant sixth fairway inside the manned gates of the prestigious Madison Club, a swanky golf development in La Quinta, Calif., that describes itself in marketing materials as “the modern interpretation of California’s classic old-line country clubs.” The sellers were luxury property developer Gala Asher and L.A.-based Coldwell Banker real estate broker Ginger Glass, also the listing agent, who acquired the property in May 2015 for $2.15 million, oversaw the design and construction of the über-modern eye-popper that is not “old-line” anything and set it out for sale in late June of this year (2018) with an aggressive asking price of $15 million. According to the Desert Sun, who first sniffed out the transaction, the sale price is “likely” the highest amount paid for a single family home in the Coachella Valley since late 2016 when billionaire investor Ron Burkle paid $13 million for a torus-shaped Palm Springs residential extravaganza long owned by Bob Hope.
Arranged around a secured courtyard with two fire features and four fake trees wrapped in twinkling fairy lights, the minimalist-minded single-story mansion sits on close to an acre with more than 11,000-square-feet of air-conditioned living space and another 3,500-square-feet of outdoor living space. There are a total of seven bedrooms — three master suites plus four guest suites — and a total of eight full and two half bathrooms. Other noteworthy amenities include four monumental masonry fireplaces, three over-sized fire features, a comprehensive home automation system, automated shears and black out shades over the windows and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems throughout the whole property.
A vast entertainment space that, proportionally speaking, has more in common with a hotel ballroom than the living/dining room of a more typically-sized American home, spaciously accommodates multiple lounging areas, a party-sized wet bar and a couple of audacious, statement-making chandeliers, including one that way more than just a little resembles a linear cluster of over-sized ice cubes. Broad banks of glass panels slip into the walls to merge the airy interior spaces with a west-facing loggia that spans the full width of the house with built-in ceiling heaters and serene sunset and mountain views over the mirror-like surface of a 100-foot-long infinity edged swimming pool and spa.
Jenner, a grandmother of nine and a powerhouse entertainment manager who guides and oversees the money minting careers of her half of a dozen adult children, maintains a growing portfolio of luxury condominiums and increasingly large mansions in the Los Angeles area. In addition to a two-bedroom and four-bathroom Century City condo snagged in October 2015 for close to $1.7 million and three small condos in the same upscale Calabasas complex — all three acquired in 2017 for a total of more than $4.7 million — Jenner retained ownership of the Hidden Hills mansion she once shared with ex-husband Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, and late last year she coughed up more than $9.9 million for a brand-new farmhouse-inspired mansion that is all but directly across the street from a multi-acre Hidden Hills compound owned by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

    We have people in this world living on the streets. Why can’t you and your family help some of those people? You could help so many with twelve million dollars.

    1. Stephe C Graffe says:

      Totally agree with you!! But these women don’t care about their fans; the only thing they care about is money and fame. Once the grandkids get into their early teens, Grandma Kris will start pimping them out to start their own scripted “reality” TV show. They could give a crap less about anyone else but their own little empire and Kris Jenner is not a shrewd business woman, she knows her daughter’s exude sex and that’s what she sells on their behalf!!

  2. Holly says:

    I totally agree with both of you… go a few blocks over , ………yes, you ll see hard working people living horribly – living in cars , bushes- working in the fields. I STRONGLY URGE- EVERYONE! GO TAKE A DRIVE IN THE REAL COACHELLA ! …and see for yourselves what a JOKE ALL THIS !…….THE …..REAL ……AMERICA!

    Let’s see how great all of these fame whores feel about these brilliant purchases when the water crisis becomes unavoidable. Within the next few years, these desert cities are all going to become ghost towns.

    I love it! What a great investment. So annoying when you see millions spent on an ugly house .. Kris always picks pretty ones. Thumbs up.

    Amazing home, esp for someone that really has done nothing accept marry up. She pimps out her slutty daughters for money, nothing to b proud of. The daughters are certainly not people to be proud of. They get paid to go to parties, have scum bag boyfriends and do nothing for the less fortunate. Narcissistic whores, all of them.

    1. Me says:

      I could not have said it better. They are losers on steroids who are devoid of any assemblance of humanity. Who could possibly want to keep up with such trash?

  7. Me says:

    Vapid, souless, and boring like she is and her spawn. When your husband becomes a woman to get away from you, that is your wake up call. Clutch your money honey, it will be all you have to show for your life.
