The price of the party palace that rapper Drake bought in Hidden Hills last month has yet to make its way into the public record. Listed at $16.9 million in 2009, it was most recently set at $8.65 million.
Outside of its new owner, perhaps the striking feature of the nearly 3-acre property is the grotto-style swimming pool with back-lighted waterfalls and an 80-foot slide. Other outdoor amenities include a tennis court, stalls for five horses, a riding arena, a mechanic bull and a viewing pavilion.
The 12,500 square feet of living space include a 24-seat theater, a game room, a spa/massage room, a wine cellar with tasting room, six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
Drake, 25, recently passed Jay-Z as having the most No. 1 singles on Billboard's R&B/hip hop chart. Among his albums are "So Far Gone," "Thank Me Later" and "Take Care," which was released last year.
The property previously sold in 2003 for $2.775 million, before it was rebuilt into an estate.
