Drake Lists Crash Pad Next to Hidden Hills Compound for $4.5M

Published: March 15, 2022 | By: American Luxury Staff

Naturally, with his primary compound in the Los Angeles community of Hidden Hills on the open market, R&B stylist Drake has no further need of the auxiliary properties adjacent to it that he’s picked up in the decade since he moved into the area.

The properties appeared simultaneously, or nearly so, with the $14.8 million listing of his ‘YOLO’ party palace, a 3.11-acre, 12,500 sq. ft. estate. All are available piecemeal, but offers for the three, which combine to form an at least six-acre spread containing three residences and numerous guest and pool houses, are being entertained; according to listing information, the cul-de-sac trio set is priced at $22.2 million.

The first of Drake’s secondary properties in the neighborhood comes to the open market with an asking price of $4.5 million. The single-level rambler contains five bedrooms and six baths across 3,645 sq. ft., and features an eminently livable series of interiors sporting vaulted ceilings, coffee-colored oak plank, off-white, and plentiful glass.

At the time of the musician’s purchase of the property — he picked it up in 2015 for $2.9 million — rumor had it that the acquisition had been prompted by noise complaints from the prior owner. One way to deal with a neighbor’s noise complaint, of course, is to make them an offer on their house. Done and done.

The property is fairly expansive, in that Hidden Hills way. Its 1.59 acres is an unhurried plain of undulating green and groomed with a guest house, oval pool, sun lounge, patio and pool house amid the red brick retaining walls, shrubs, succulents and mature trees of the little estate’s landscaping.

Still, it’s no YOLO, you know? No equestrian accommodations or arena, no stadium theater, and no water park-like pool complex with waterfall grotto decorated with bronze sculptures of nubile women with gravity-defying endowments. Calling Hef! Are you there? Hef? Can you be stirred from the ether to once more don your smoking jacket and party in genteel fashion?
