Celebrity Swimming Pools – Drake

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 been thinking about building an outlandish backyard for quite a while: “I was like, ‘What are the world’s craziest residential pools?’ and when I Googled it, this came up … This house was the background image on my computer years before I bought it.” It hit the market in 2009 asking $27 million, but by 2012 Pollack was in dire financial straits 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 an over the top Olympic-sized pool to go with a new mansion, in his native Toronto: “One of my goals in life is to have the largest residential pool in the world.” This after he recently sold his Toronto condo for $4.2 million. So clearly he’s got a few dollars 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.
