Drake is finally offloading his enormous mansion in Hidden Hills, California known as the ‘Yolo mansion’ but it comes nearly $3million under his original asking price.
The 35-year-old hitmaker sold the property in the celeb-filled area for $12million despite originally asking for $14.8illion in a deal which closed on Friday according to TMZ.
The ‘Yolo estate’ is made of three homes but this is the main property as the two smaller homes were scooped up by Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford for $11million.
Drake had originally put the properties on the market in March after he purchased another mansion in Beverly Hills for and eye-popping $50 million from Robbie Williams.

The main property features an impressive 12,500 square feet, but that could be significantly expanded for anyone with deep pockets who’s looking to acquire either of the other two properties.
All together, the three properties amount to 6.7 acres, and they’re conveniently located at the end of a cul-de-sac for plenty of privacy. The trio can be acquired for $22.2 million.
The home has a classic English Tudor style, which contrasts with the over-the-top exterior, including a pool decorated with statues of nude women.
The outlet notes that the mansion is filled with luxuries, including a 25-seat theater for viewing films.
Wine aficionados will appreciate the mansion cellar, as well as a tasting room for picking out the perfect vintage.

Fittingly, Drake’s master bedroom is the centerpiece of the home and boasts 2,000 square feet of space, with a connecting spa and marble soaking tubs for pampering.
Rayni Williams and Branden Williams are representing the listing for The Beverly Hills Estates.
The In My Feelings rapper and singer previously turned his Hidden Hills property into his very own Playboy mansion, as DailyMailTV’s aerial shots revealed.
Drake’s house features its own swim-in grotto and a bar inside the swimming pool. There are also large statues of naked women in and around the water and a waterfall cascading from the hot tub above.
In fact, it was the swimming pool that first attracted Drake to the property — and he’d had his sights set on it for years.

Water sports: The outdoor area also features an 80-foot slide, an outdoor fireplace beside the pool and several plasma TVs. ‘I was like, ”What are the world’s craziest residential pools?” and when I searched online, this came up,’ Drake revealed in 2014
Opulent: He has dubbed the sprawling property the YOLO (You Only Live Once) estate after his 2011 hit song The Motto
‘I was like, ”What are the world’s craziest residential pools?” and when I searched online, this came up,’ he revealed to Rolling Stone back in 2014. ‘This house was the desktop image on my computer years before I bought it.’
Drake spent $7.7million to buy the six-bedroom, 11-bathroom home from Saddle Ranch owner Larry Pollack.
The musician admitted that it was a steal, because the house was originally put on the market for $27million.
Many of the quirks to the property – such as the statues of women – were there when Drake moved in. And the occupation of the previous owner explains why there’s a bucking bronco sitting in its own pen in the grounds.
Although he doesn’t own horses and therefore has little use for the stables, Drake has several statues of animals littered around the place, including a 60-foot model of a crocodile beside the mechanical bull.

Whatever works: The statues of naked women in the pool complete Drake’s ladies man persona but they were actually already there when Drake moved in
Expanding: In 2016 and 2018 Drake bought two neighboring properties for his friends and family to visit and he said he had his property saved on his desktop for years before the purchase
What a bargain! The musician admitted the property was a steal at $7 million, because the house was originally put on the market for $27 million
And he kept the full-size beach volleyball court that came with the home, complete with sand.
The pool that Drake had his eye on for so many years appears to be the center of attention when it comes to the star’s home, as the aerial images reveal.
Additionally, there is an 80-foot slide, an outdoor fireplace beside the pool and several plasma televisions.
But the grounds aren’t just for entertaining Drake’s guests.
He also has plenty of space to indulge his active side with a tennis court and basketball court. Drake is known to be a fan of both sports.
Drake christened his property the YOLO (You Only Live Once) estate – after his hit song – and even had a sign outside that he got rid of after it was stolen several times.
And just in case it wasn’t clear that this is the ultimate bachelor pad, the star admitted that when he brings women home, he ‘delights in flipping a switch beside a bookshelf, which swings open to reveal his bedroom’.
But the house isn’t just for Drake to show the world that he’s the second coming of Hugh Hefner.
He’s also turned it into a place that his family and friends can come to visit.
Drake bought the two neighboring properties in 2016 and 2018 respectively for guests to stay in. And despite the fact that his home was put up for sale for $ 20 million in 2017, the star has no intention of selling it.
It turned out that it was put on the market as a mistake.
