Just a year after splurging on a majestic estate nestled in the hills above Beverly Hills, popular rapper Drake is already putting it back on the market. His resort-style haven is now available for purchase at an asking price of $88 million, as initially reported by TMZ.
The sprawling mansion, covering nearly 25,000 square feet, was designed by renowned architects at KAA Design Group for Armand Marciano, the co-founder of GUESS, in the late 1990s. Initially featuring Old World, Mediterranean-inspired interiors, the Tuscan-style residence saw extensive renovations under Robbie Williams, who bought the mansion in 2015 for $33 million and transformed the interiors into contemporary spaces.
In the spring of last year, Williams and his wife, Ayda Field, sold this colossal estate to Drake for a staggering $75 million. Although it's not precisely known what alterations Drake has implemented since the purchase, the estate largely retains the look it had under Williams' tenure, a fact evident from the glamorous property listing photos and Field's regular Instagram updates.
Located in the seclusion of the hills above Benedict Canyon and situated at the end of a hidden cul-de-sac, the mansion offers impressive canyon, city, and ocean views, framed by mature olive trees and ancient oaks. It boasts an 11-car garage and an expansive motor court capable of accommodating dozens of vehicles.
The newly staged interiors showcase a minimalist aesthetic, featuring a double-height foyer with an imposing staircase, a living room with two grand fireplaces, a wine cellar, a gym, an elevator, a kitchen with dual islands, and a master suite complete with a private balcony and a spacious salon-style bathroom. Additional amenities include a staff wing, a separate guesthouse, acres of marble finishes, and bespoke custom woodwork.
However, the estate's outdoor attributes truly capture attention: one of the largest lawn areas in the 90210 area, a full-size tennis court, an outdoor kitchen, and a concealed orchard, according to the listing. The property spans nearly 20 acres, with much of it being a rugged hillside.
While it remains unknown where Drake plans to relocate, he still spends a considerable amount of time in his hometown, Toronto, where he owns a 50,000-square-foot mansion in the upscale Bridle Path neighborhood.
