PK and Kemsley attempted to sell their luxurious $6.5million Encino mansion in September 2020, just months after moving in.

The couple had listed the swanky modern farmhouse, located in an elite area of the Valley, for a whopping $9.495million with the help of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles realtor David Parnes. 

The couple wanted to sell their home because they were ‘going to run their businesses from their house,’ a source told DailyMailTV at the time.

Jagger and Phoenix were also being home schooled so the Kemsleys were ‘looking for a larger estate that is laid out for this new COVID world we find ourselves in.’ 

The home’s stunning interior features an open floorplan, lots of natural light and what Kemsley once called her ‘dream kitchen’. The house also has an expansive outdoor space.
