Drake Sells His Iconic Beverly Hills Estate: A Peek Inside The Star-Studded Deal

In a move that surprised the celebrity real estate world, Canadian-born singer, actor, and rapper Drake made headlines by selling his Beverly Hills property for a whopping $88 million, making it one of the most expensive celebrity real estate transactions of 2022​1​. The estate, once owned by musician Robbie Williams, was bought by Drake for $75 million just over a year ago, and his decision to sell has sparked speculation about the star’s future residential plans​2​​3​.

The impressive estate, nestled on approximately 19 acres of Beverly Hills land, is a grand display of luxury and opulence​4​. The sprawling compound boasts several acres of mountain terrain, a tiered hillside, and about 25,000 square feet of living space perched on a flat parcel of land. The Tuscan-style main house, completed in 2001, features 10 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, and three ensuite bedrooms dedicated to staff. The home is designed for entertainment, with high ceilings, two living  rooms, a dedicated dining room, a Tuscan-style kitchen with two islands, a gym, game room, wine cellar, and a sprawling master suite with wide walk-in closets​5​.

The exterior of the property is equally breathtaking. The estate features a motor court leading to the front door and an 11-car garage. The vast backyard includes two massive, well-manicured lawns, a blue mosaic-tiled pool, a pool house with an outdoor kitchen, and a full-size tennis court, offering a resort-like experience​6​. Sweeping views of the city skyline, ocean, and mountain ranges add to the grandeur of this stunning property​7​.

Originally built for Guess co-founder Armand Marciano, the property has a rich history of celebrity ownership. Robbie Williams purchased it in 2015 before Drake took possession in 2021​8​. The sale is jointly held by Branden and Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates along with Marc Bretter of Maywood Property Group​9​.

Reports suggest that Drake is leaving America, possibly for his homeland in the Great White North, hence the sale of this estate​10​. However, the rapper’s decision to sell comes at a time when the housing market is in a state of flux. Despite the slow start to the spring homebuying season and rising mortgage rates, Drake could make a considerable profit if he finds a buyer willing to splash serious cash in this tricky market​11​​12​.

While some regions are seeing housing prices rise and others adjust to lower prices, the more expensive areas of the country, like Beverly Hills, are experiencing a cool down in price increases. Yet, as the National Association of Realtors’ chief economist Lawrence Yun points out, Americans with means will continue to see real estate as a solid investment and a hedge against inflation. In this context, the question remains: who will be the next owner of Drake’s luxurious Beverly Hills estate? With the right buyer, this could be the next big move in celebrity real estate​13​.
