In our mid-week celeb round up, we’re bringing you the deets on two completely unrelated celebrities and their equally divided real estate activities of the week. Socialite and designer Nicky Hilton and Canadian ‘recording artist’ Drake have both been busy in the Southern California market, trading up and trading out on some big-ticket digs. While Hilton is getting rid of her monochrome West Hollywood box, Drake shelled out the cash for an outsized estate in Hidden Hills.

The younger Hilton, who has scraped together a living as a handbag designer, is moving on from this ivy-covered white cube in West Hollywood, CA. The nondescript interiors of 4,000 square foot home are made even more so by a severe black-and-white color scheme, though the dining room does receive a bit of color from (of all things) vintage palm-print wallpaper. Not much of a backyard to speak of, though a swimming pool is squished in against the bordering hillside. Perhaps the home’s location just off Sunset Boulevard is the justification for its $3 million price tag…

In other news, hip-hop artist Drake reportedly paid about $2.8 million for a sprawling complex in Hidden Hills, CA. The 3 acre property has a wealth of attractions, including a 12,500 square foot main house, stables, and an extraordinary swimming pool, complete with waterfall and a torch-lit grotto (top and above). To me, the home looks like an amusement park mash-up of Snow White and California Adventure’s Grizzly River Run – but hey, to each his own. I’m sure living in Disneyland can’t be all that bad.
