Just a year after purchasing a stunning estate in Beverly Hills, rapper Drake has decided to put the property on the market. The luxurious, resort-style mansion is now listed for sale at $88 million, with TMZ first breaking the story.

A Property Full of History

  • The opulent, nearly 25,000-square-foot Tuscan-style residence was initially built in the late 1990s by the esteemed architects of KAA Design Group for GUESS co-founder Armand Marciano.

  • The home originally showcased Old World, Mediterranean-themed interiors, which were later transformed into modern spaces by British pop sensation Robbie Williams, who acquired the property in 2015 for $33 million.

  • A few months ago, Williams and his wife, Ayda Field, sold the expansive compound to Drake for an astounding $75 million.

While the specific changes the rapper made to the property remain unclear, a polished listing website indicates the mansion's current appearance closely resembles its look during Williams' tenure, as captured on Field's Instagram.

Perched high above Benedict Canyon and tucked away at the end of a private cul-de-sac, the estate is accessed through gates and a lengthy driveway. The breathtaking canyon, city, and ocean vistas are beautifully framed by numerous mature olive trees and ancient oaks. The estate features an 11-car garage and a spacious motor court, offering ample parking for additional vehicles.

The recently staged, minimalist interiors boast a double-height foyer with a striking staircase, a living room with dual grand fireplaces, a wine cellar, a gym, an elevator, a kitchen with two islands, and an upper-level master suite that includes a private balcony with a view and a luxurious bathroom larger than some residences. The property also provides a staff wing and a separate guest house.

The property's marble finishes and woodwork are costly, but the vast grounds and views truly shine, with a large lawn, tennis court, outdoor kitchen, and hidden orchard. The 20-acre compound mostly comprises rugged hillside.

Compared to other historical big money listings in Beverly Hills:

  • The iconic Beverly House: Once owned by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, this legendary estate was famously featured in "The Godfather" and has been listed for as much as $195 million.

  • Palazzo di Amore: This 25-acre Mediterranean-style villa, complete with a vineyard, was listed for a staggering $195 million in 2014, making it one of the most expensive residential properties in the U.S. at the time.

  • Chartwell Estate: Previously owned by late media mogul Jerry Perenchio, this French neoclassical mansion was listed for $350 million in 2017 and sold for $150 million in 2019, setting a record for the highest-priced home sale in California history.

No news on Drake's plans, but he is often at his 50,000-square-foot Toronto mansion in the upscale Bridle Path area. The listing is held by Branden and Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates and Marc Bretter of Maywood Property Group.
