Drake 2221

The Los Angeles-area home, a 20 acre compound with a 25,000-square-foot mansion, is trading hands in an off-market deal

Rapper, actor and Toronto’s favorite son, Drake, is expanding his property portfolio to the tune of many millions, snapping up a Los Angeles mega-mansion belonging to British musician Robbie Williams, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

The nearly 20-acre Beverly Hills estate, which is in contract, was being quietly shopped around off market with an $85 million asking price by celebrity-favorite listing agent Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency.

Though details on the home are scarce, given the discrete nature of the deal, previously listing details paint a picture of a vast 25,000-square-foot main house situated at the end of a long, private driveway with pillars and balconies surrounded by lush grounds, a pool, a tennis court and a guest house.

The home also boasts an elevator, a wine cellar, a gym and a game room.

Mr. Rappaport declined to comment on the sale.

Mr. Williams, 48, has owned the Tuscan-style estate since 2015, when he bought it for $32.67 million from Guess co-founder Armand Marciano, property records show.

A final sale price for the property won’t be recorded until the deal is closed.

The singer-songwriter has also recently found a buyer for his English country estate, which was asking £6.75 million (US$8.9 million). Mr. Williams and his wife, actress and model Ayda Field, 42, bought the 70-acre English bolthole, known as Compton Bassett House, in 2009 for £8.1 million, Mansion Global previously reported.

Drake, 35, otherwise known as Aubrey Drake Graham, is one of the world’s best-selling music artists and has won four Grammy Awards and six American Music Awards.

Representatives couldn’t be reached for either musician.

The Los Angeles Times first reported the news.
