Wiz Khalifa desires $4.5 million for contemporary Encino house

Rapper Wiz Khalifa is hoping for a hit in the San Fernando Valley, placing his Encino house of 3 years on the marketplace for $4.5 million.

The listing comes as not a surprise; last month, the Grammy-nominated hip-hop celebrity spent $7.62 million on a somewhat bigger spot a couple of miles away.

Khalifa got this one for $3.4 million in 2019 a year after it was constructed. Billed as boasting "transitional contemporary style," the 5,875-square-foot home draws the eye with an elegant exterior of white stucco and rich wood.
