Shortly after he flipped his modernist Bel Air residence to a pair of New York-based designers, Grammy-winning rapper, singer and record producer Tyler Okonma — better known to his fans as Tyler, the Creator — has already picked up the keys to an all-new contemporary mansion in the same neighborhood.
Records reveal the Los Angeles native doled out $13 million for the striking white stucco and wood-sided structure, or a whopping $2 million less than the original list price. Originally constructed way back in the early 1970s, and completely rebuilt from the ground up last year, the home features four bedrooms and six baths spread across 5,000 square feet of living space boasting custom Brazilian wood floors finished in white oak, high ceilings and steel-case windows throughout. Vast expanses of glass provide sweeping ocean and city lights views from almost every room.
Tucked away on a woodsy parcel spanning nearly an acre of land, and protected by gates and a top-notch security system, the three-level house naturally has glitzy amenities, like a smart-home system, state-of-the-art movie theater and step-up cigar lounge. Other highlights include formal living and dining rooms, plus a sleekly designed kitchen sporting an eat-in island, top-tier appliances and an accompanying casual dining area.
A particularly eye-catching floating wood staircase heads upstairs, where the master retreat is outfitted with dual walk-in closets and luxe baths; and outdoors, the private and entertainment-ready backyard hosts a saltwater pool surrounded by a wood deck, as well as a dry sauna, fire-pit, and bar and barbecue setup. Rounding it all out: a four-car garage, along with additional parking for several more vehicles.
