Drake’s party site, the Yolo Estate, sells for $12 million

Drake just completed his third and final home sale in Hidden Hills. A few months after selling two ranches to Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, the rapper just offloaded the property’s crown jewel for $12 million.

The hip-hop star saved the best for last, as the residence known as the “Yolo Estate” is by far the most impressive of the three houses. He bought the Tudor-style home a decade ago for $7.7 million and transformed it into a full-fledged party venue complete with a mechanical bull, sand volleyball court, and custom-designed swimming pool with an 80-foot rock waterslide and secret grotto with TV and a bar.

The house also has a lot to offer. Accessed via a stone bridge, the two-story venue is adorned with custom chandeliers, stone fireplaces, and amenities including a bar, wine cellar, tasting room, recording studio, and movie theater.

Elsewhere are seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, including a 2,000-square-foot master suite hidden behind a bookshelf.

Spread over 3 acres of landscaped grounds, the grounds feature a tennis court, entertainer’s patio, sundeck and equestrian facilities such as a stables and riding arena.

Branden and Rayni Williams of the Beverly Hills Estates held the listing. Rodeo Realty’s Lisa Moriarty represented the buyer, who remains unknown.

Drake, whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham, has released seven studio albums since 2010, including the surprise release Honestly, Nevermind, which was released this month. He has sold more than 170 million records on his way to four Grammy Awards and founded the Toronto record label OVO Sound in 2012.

He sold the three homes after moving to Beverly Crest earlier this year, spending $75 million on a 20,000-square-foot, 20-acre home owned by English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams, The Times previously reported .
