‘Yolo Estate gone’ Drake sells property in Hidden Hills to powerful attorney (Photos)

About three months ago, Aubrey “Drake” Graham placed all three homes that made up his sprawling Hidden Hills compound on the market, asking a combined total $22.2 million.

The Canadian music superstar quickly sold two of those properties to L.A. Rams Quarterback Matthew Stafford in April for $11 million. And now he’s managed to offload the final piece of the puzzle — his 16,000-square-foot Tudor-style house known as the YOLO (You Only Live Once) Estate.

Records show the buyer is Iran-born attorney Makan Delrahim, a high-profile partner at international law firm Latham & Watkins and a former U.S. assistant attorney general appointed during Donald Trump’s presidency. Originally listed for $14.8 million, the property went to Delrahim for a significantly discounted $11.3 million, per records. But that’s still almost $3.6 million more than Drake paid restaurateur Larry Pollack for the place a decade ago, back in July 2012.

Nestled on a secluded cul-de-sac in affluent Hidden Hills, on a three-acre parcel surrounded by equestrian trails, the stucco and terracotta-roof structure features seven bedrooms and nine baths sprawled across 12,500 square feet of living space. Glitzy amenities include six fireplaces, a wine cellar and tasting room, 25-seat movie theater, recording studio and lounge, and even a mechanical bull.

Other highlights include an expansive living room resting beneath a vaulted wood-beam ceiling and sporting a veined-marble fireplace alongside a seated wet bar, a formal step-down dining room with picture windows overlooking the grounds, and a gourmet kitchen outfitted with powder blue cabinetry, an eat-in island and top-tier stainless appliances.

There’s also a fireside family room that flows out to an al fresco dining terrace, while a wood-paneled bookshelf opens to reveal a nearly 2,000-square-foot master retreat decked out with seating areas and a mini-bar, as well as a luxe bath equipped with dual vanities, marble-clad soaking tubs and a so-called “partners spa.”

Garnering extra attention is the resort-like backyard, which hosts everything from a pool with spa grotto, swim-up bar, waterfalls, an 80-foot rock waterslide and several flat-screen TVs, to stables, a tennis/basketball court and even a sandy volleyball court.

As for Drake, he’s far from homeless. The “God’s Plan” singer recently paid $75 million for Robbie Williams’ Beverly Hills-area estate. And he also still owns a highly customized, 50,000-square-foot megamansion in Toronto’s exclusive Bridle Path neighborhood.

The listing was held by Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates; Lisa Moriarity of Rodeo Realty repped the buyer.
