The saying is “YOLO – You Only Live Once”, which probably explains the $7.7 million residential home he purchased in Hidden Hills, from Saddle Ranch former owner Larry Pollack in mid-2012. According to Drake, he’d had his eye on it for quite a while: “I was like, ‘What are the world’s craziest residential pools?’ and when I searched online, this came up … This house was the desktop image on my computer years before I bought it.” It hit the market in 2009 asking $27 million, but by 2012 Pollack “needed money” and, according to Pollack, Drake “stole it from him.” One thing is for certain as far as celebrity pools are concerned, his Hidden Hills pool is out of control over the top.
The word is that Drake is building a brand new Olympic-sized pool to go with a new mansion, in his native Toronto: “One of my goals in life is to have the biggest residential pool on the planet.” This after he recently sold his Toronto condo for $4.2 million. So he’s got a few bucks to spend on a new upgrade. For the time being he’ll have to “settle” for the lavish resort style pool at his home in Hidden Hills.
