And the Kardashian real estate saga continues.

Reality star-turned-makeup guru Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West sold their Bel Air Crest residence for $17.8 million to Ukrainian entrepreneur and philanthropist Marina Acton, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Spanning 9,000 square feet, the minimalist estate has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a swimming pool and a cabana. The couple renovated the home upon buying and installed new glass windows, some of which reach over 30 feet high.

The property last traded hands for $9 million in 2013, public records show.

Josh and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman brokered the deal. Sandy Papale of Douglas Elliman and Joel Goodrich of Coldwell Banker Previews International also represented Acton.

Just a year after acquiring this residence, “Kimye” also snagged a Hidden Hills mansion once owned by Lisa Marie Presley for $20 million. Kardashian West also just recently purchased a condo in the Avanti community in Calabasas for $1.6 million. Kanye, on the other hand, has been more in a selling mood. He recently sold his Hollywood Hills home — used in the “Heartless” music video — for just under $3 million. [WSJ]Natalie Hoberman
