    French Montana Ready To Depart From His $5M Calabasas Mansion

    The rapper French Montana has just listed his entertainment Mecca in the celeb-filled town of Calabasas, CA, for $4,999,000.

    It isn’t the first time—and probably won’t be the last—that this posh property has been owned by a recording artist.

    In 2014, Selena Gomez purchased the 8,618-square-foot mansion for $3.7 million. Two years later, she passed it along to Montana for $3.3 million—a great deal for him, not so much for her.

    The nearly $2 million price bump Montana now seeks reflects more than just rising property values in this exclusive enclave. Montana also added a deluxe, state-of-the-art recording studio to the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home. The chart-topping rapper spent $400,000 to create the space.

    Montana also gave the mansion’s interior a neutral color scheme, substituting grays and whites for the gem tones of amethyst and turquoise that Gomez favored.

    Clean white marble counters and cabinetry have also replaced beiges and browns in the kitchen, which also has shiny new appliances, including a Sub-Zero fridge and freezer, a Wolf oven, and dual dishwashers.

    Of course, plenty of the home’s luxe features didn’t call for any intervention. The extensive wine cellar, the stately motor court. and the five fireplaces needed no improvement.

    One of those five fireplaces is located in the expansive primary suite, which also has a luxe sitting area nestled in a bay window overlooking the lush property.

    Other luxury features that any celeb would enjoy include the plush home theater/media room, and the pool/spa cabana, with an outdoor kitchen and brick pizza oven.

    There’s also a detached guesthouse on the property, which features a large great room, full bathroom, walk-in closet, and a terrace with another of those five fireplaces.

    Montana, 36, was born Karim Kharbouch in Morocco and emigrated to the United States with his family when he was 13. He signed a joint-venture record deal with Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group in 2012.

    He has also collaborated with recording artists including Akon, Wiz Khalifa, and Three 6 Mafia. He’s responsible for hits including “Choppa Choppa Down,” “Pop That,” and “Unforgettable.”

    The Oppenheim Group’s Jason Oppenheim  has the listing.
