The “Yolo estate”
Drake, the Canadian rapper, musician, and actor, has sold his Los Angeles YOLO mansion for $12 million.
The nearly 12,500-square-foot estate is set on slightly more than 3 acres in the celebrity-studded Hidden Hills neighborhood and has various amenities for living the hip-hop-star lifestyle, such as a grotto pool with a swim-up bar and a mechanical bull.
According to the listing with Branden and Rayni Williams of the Beverly Hills Estates, “The YOLO estate is a jaw-dropping resort-style home tucked away in the ultra-exclusive, guard-gated enclave of Hidden Hills,” using the abbreviation “you only live once.” This English Tudor is the perfect fusion of country charm and contemporary comfort, situated in a secluded cul-de-sac and flanked by equestrian trails.
According to PropertyShark records, Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, spent $7.7 million for the property in 2012. According to the listing information, the singer of the songs “Wait for U,” “Toosie Slide,” and “Way 2 Sexy” initially listed the house in March for $14.8 million. Early in May, the deal was made.
