Rapper Wiz Khalifa is hoping for a hit in the San Fernando Valley, putting his Encino home on the market three years on for $4.5 million.
The list comes as no surprise; Last month, the Grammy-nominated hip-hop star spent $7.62 million on a slightly larger venue, a few miles away.
Khalifa bought this for $3.4 million in 2019 a year after it was built. Billed as boasting “transitional modern architecture,” the 5,875-square-foot residence draws attention with its luxurious exterior in white stucco and rich wood.

Inside, the two-story floor plan combines clean lines, open spaces and lots of glazing. There’s a chef’s kitchen with a waterfall island, a family room with a 100-bottle wine bar and a two-story foyer surrounded by a 25-meter floating wooden staircase.
Elsewhere are six bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, an office, a living room and a theater room, which Khalifa painted during his stay. He also made some changes to the comfortable backyard, adding a basketball court next to the guesthouse.
The terrace is at the back of the house, overlooking the Santa Susana Mountains and overlooking the quarter-acre property complete with a dining patio, fire pit, pool and spa.
Alan Taylor of Compass and Brian Capossela of Cap Equity Realty hold the list.
Khalifa, whose real name is Cameron Thomaz, has released six studio albums since 2006, including his debut album, “Show and Prove” and “Rolling Papers” in 2011. His hits include including “Black and Yellow,” which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and “See You Again,” which appeared in the movie “Furious 7.”
