Kanye West building 'Downton Abbey' home for Kim Kardashian?Add to Favorites | Keeping Up With the Kardashians
A source who is supposedly a friend of the couple tells the Daily Star, "Both Kanye and Kim love the U.K. They think it is so quaint and beautiful. Kanye is fascinated by European history, the aristocracy and the British Royals."
He loves watching 'Downton Abbey' on television and it's exactly the kind of place he would like to live in," the source continues. "They discussed moving to the U.K., but in the end they agreed on bringing a bit of Britain to Los Angeles."
Reportedly the couple has been scoping out a 10-acre site in Calabasas Hills, because Kanye supposedly wants "a statement home that will be passed down from generation to generation, in the way they used to be in the Britain of the Downton era."
The source adds, "Of course there will be a movie theatre, bowling alley and basketball court. It's going to be the family's palace so no expense will be spared on the decor. They intend it to be the most spectacular house ever built."
