Senegalese singer/songwriter Akon Thiam is listing his 5 bedroom, 6 bath, ultra modern Woodland Hills, CA. home for $3.5 million, or $4 million fully furnished with all-white furniture and studio equipment thrown in.
According to Zillow.com, Akon purchased the 4,098 sq ft home for $1,900,000 back in January. After renovating the mansion from top to bottom, he's flipping the house for a quick profit.
Rapper and music producer Akon is marketing his ethereal Los Angeles-area mansion by the nickname “Heaven” after a top-to-bottom refresh.
And then he wrote a listing description that reads like R&B liner notes: “Lifted. Inspired. Alive. Music, the muse, beckons. The sound. The soul. The studio. This is Heaven.”
The five-time Grammy winner, whose main residence is in Atlanta, bought the home at 5421 Lubao Ave, Woodland Hills, CA 91364 last September, when it was gray and a little outdated. He made everything bright white, including the interior and exterior walls, the furniture, the patio, the pool, the floors, the railings and accessories.
The 4,098-square-foot home in Woodland Hills has three fireplaces and a beach-entry pool, 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and a recording studio. It also has a pay phone mounted on a bright blue wall — the one piece of decor Akon chose to keep after his purchase.
