The Drake compound in Hidden Hills continues to expand. It was only back in 2012 that the musician picked up an extravagantly party-oriented palace in the affluent gated city. About four years later, a series of noise complaints from a neighbor had Drake on the doorstep of the ranch house with a generous offer, and for a little under $3 million the R&B/hip-hop hotshot had increased property considerably, and added a bit of acreage.
Most recently, Drake picked up a genuinely stuck-in-the-1960s ranch home on the other side of his mansion; the 2.2-acre addition helps swell the three-acre original property size to nearly seven acres, which was probably the reason for the purchase. The home itself dates to the late 1950’s, is a fairly compact 2,500 square feet, and hasn’t seen much in the way of renovation over the years. As a second guest house entirely distinct from the original property, it may come in handy…if it isn’t demolished.
The interiors of the home are somewhat dark; glass is limited, and the diamond panes fashionable in their era don’t help. If you like interior brick, though, it’s got plenty, and the red brick that dominates the shared living space is quite cozy. The haphazard wood trim and ceiling also date the home. It’s a bit of a hodgepodge, but—in its way—a lot more interesting than the refined, polite, and spiritless interiors of many contemporary luxury homes.
Drake now owns a private enclave in Hidden Hills. The possibility of the young multi-millionaire continuing the conquest remains, but we think he might be satisfied with the status quo, and turn his real-estate buying interests elsewhere after this.
Canadian hip-hop powerhouse Drake rake in $97 million in 2017, making him the third-highest earning artist for that year.
