It really is Dre Day! Dr. Dre, the iconic rapper/producer/headphones tycoon, is selling his Woodland Hills estate for $5.25 million—the most expensive listing in the entire town at the moment. Dre originally bought the home back in 1999 for $2,375 million, according to Variety, so if he hits is asking price, he’ll be ready for the next episode with ease. 

Built in 1987, the French-style estate is an eight-bed, 13-bath property located at the guard-gated Westchester County Estates, one of the most exclusive properties in the area. A long driveway is also tucked behind gates, and weaves up to the 16,200-square-foot manor. Step inside the double door entry to the grand staircase that cascades upward. On the main floor, an elegant formal living room and formal dining room are ideal for entertaining guests, and the full kitchen features an eat-in bar, casual dining area, separate chef’s kitchen, and 250-plus bottle wine cellar. A family/game room has a cozy fireplace and unique accents like a 150-gallon fish tank.

The property truly embraces the indoor/outdoor SoCal vibe with a wall of glass doors and windows that opens up, offering prime access to the spacious balcony, as well as the indoor jacuzzi that sits right on the cusp of the patio. A casual TV area is the prime spot for watching a movie on the patio under the stars, while a bar and fire pits make entertaining a breeze- as does the olympic-length saltwater pool.

On the second story, the grand master suite is a private oasis in your own home, with a sit-down area, and beautiful balcony overlooking the backyard. The master bath features his/her vanities, an oversized shower, and jacuzzi tub. There’s also separate closets, a dry sauna, and a hair/makeup dressing room that’s the perfect spot to get ready for a night out on the town. Off the master there’s a spacious office that provides the perfect spot to work from home, and a gym and screening room provide every luxurious amenity you could desire. Guest quarters feature a kitchenette, sitting room, two bedrooms, and a full bath, and we’re guessing you won’t have any trouble finding friends willing to try it out.

“Dr. Dre bought this place a couple of decades ago, but may have never truly called it home,” says realtor.com celebrity real estate expert, Erik Gunther. “He’s now ready to bounce out of the three-level luxury mansion. The place doesn’t have a recording studio, but it does have a huge aquarium, private guest quarters, and a spot in the master suite designed specifically for hair and makeup.” 

A frequent real estate investor, Dr. Dre knows his way around a deal. Just last year, he dropped nearly $5 million on a sprawling estate in the luxe town of Calabasas, and he has owned in Malibu too. And of course, you may remember the expansive $40 million French Chateau-style mansion in the Hollywood Hills that he bought from New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen several years back. He flipped that property, but ended up taking a $5 million hit.
