Lil Nas X Picks Up L.A. Modern for $2.4M

This corner of Southern California desert is now the home of Lil Nas X, who plunked down $2.35 million for it last month. The Georgia-born performer—who’s hit “Old Town Road” picks up the hip, egalitarian pop-cultural trail blazed by Sonny Rollins, Oliver Nelson and Ray Charles—has a new West Coast pad to hang his cowboy hat.

As for the house, it’s a midcentury modern with four bedrooms and five baths across 2,580 sq. ft.. It was built in 1950, and sits on a hilltop; views are excellent from most rooms in the home. Last sold in 2017 for $940K, the house has seen both renovation and expansion, as listing descriptions from that time detail the house as a three-bedroom-er.

Now featuring a dividing wall between the view-rich main living area and the kitchen, the home sneaks in a bit more intimacy that most open-concept moderns, but the waterfall island is artfully placed with one end jutting into the transition threshold. It also boasts master with a marble-clad bath—also glass-heavy, and overlooking the leafy, semi-populated suburban landscape beyond—an outdoor deck with a lap pool, and an entry that crosses moving water.

Amenities include a studio and a large backyard, as well as a lengthy balcony that brings the views that much nearer.

“Old Town Road” spent a record 19 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Lil Nas X found the top of the charts again with hit single “Montero,” which happens to be his first name. He was reportedly named after the Mitsubishi Montero.
