Akon I DESTROYED A Great House & Made It Even Better

4/7/2014 2:30 AM PDT
Akon just took a perfectly fine suburban home in the San Fernando Valley and gutted it like a fish ... turning it into a SICK new party palace.

Real estate sources tell us Akon dropped just under $2 mil for an elegant 5-BR contemporary home with glass walls and concrete floors ... and then tore it apart.

He unveiled his masterpiece this week ... throwing himself a big 40th birthday bash.

Can't wait to see the welcome he gets from his new neighbors ... once they realize he also owns tigers.

Check out the pics of Akon's crib ... and tell us ....
