According to reports, the hitmaker had been eyeing this house for a while until he finally made it due to its original price of $27 million. Fortunately, the rate decreased, so Drake didn’t need to apply for a home loan for it. The house boasts a huge swimming pool, which is perfect for Drake’s future house parties.

This property is tucked away in a secluded lane near Casuarina Beach in the New Providence’s Lyford Cay.
What stands out about this property, according to Sean himself, is that it doesn’t feel like it’s located on a major tourist island.

After two years, Gwen Stefani finally sold her Beverly Hills home for $21.65 million. That’s a lot of money, to be sure, but it was a far cry from its original price of $30 million. She might have decided to offload it for that amount because it was on the market for two years without any buyers showing interest. She still earned $8.4 million from it after buying it with her then-husband, Gavin Rossdale, for $13 million in 2006.
It could also be the bad memory of her split with Rossdale that made her want to sell the house.The 15,000-square-foot home was designed with the help of the whimsical director Kelly Wearstler.
