Photos: You Can Buy Tupac's Woodland Hills Mansion, Which Fits 15 Cars In The Driveway
It seems that there's a cycle in which Tupac Shakur rises to the top of our collective consciousness every few years. We may be experiencing another one of those peaks, what with a new Tupac movie (the critically panned All Eyez On Me) and new reports about the rapper's ill-fated relationship with Madonna.
Now, we're getting another dose of Tupac, as his former home has gone on the market. As expected, the Woodland Hills home is nothing less than an extravagant mansion that's burnished from head to toe. As noted at NBC4, Tupac was living in the space under a lease (and was in escrow to buy it) when he was fatally shot in Vegas in 1996. It was also formerly owned by DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit, if you're still fond of the nu-metal thing.
The details are certainly impressive. The estate boasts six bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as a living room with vaulted ceilings, and a dining room with wrought iron chandelier and French doors that lead to the backyard, according to the home's listing. Upstairs, you'll find a suite with access to a master bath that features a large shower with two steamers and a jacuzzi tub that faces a decorative fireplace. Out back, the yard includes a sparkling pool, a spa, and a fire-pit. It's also worth mentioning that the driveway can fit up to 15 cars (that's a lot of space for your Hyundai Sonata).
Has your interest been piqued? Well, the home will cost you $2.6 million. So there's that to consider. Anyway, as you mull over putting up the down payment, check out this video of the home (provided by the realty) that's reminiscent of MTV Cribs.
