Kanye West is trying to offload his beachfront property in California for $4 million less than what he paid for, after allegedly attempting to transform the home into bomb shelter.

‘Selling Sunset’ star Jason Oppenheim listed the Malibu mansion for $53 million, after the rapper had initially paid $57 million for the property, two years ago, as per the reports by PEOPLE.

The Oppenheim Group co-founder told the website that the asking price includes the cost of installing new finishes and removing the house’s interiors.

The mansion’s Malibu Road location is “one of the most desirable areas in the world” as per Oppenheim, who wished to have a listing with such architectural pedigree.

He described the rapper’s abode, designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, as a “unique home for a unique and discerning buyer.”

Speaking of the construction, the interior space is roughly of 4,000 square feet with the outdoor living areas being 1,500 square feet. The property is constructed of 1,200 tons of concrete, approximately, 200 tons of steel reinforcement and 12 “massive” pylons driven more than 60 feet into the sand.
