Inside Drake’s ridiculously extravagant $250 million mansion

Drake’s extravagant $250 million mansion was constructed in his hometown of Toronto in 2019 – and it has to be seen to be believed.

Designer Ferris Rafauli was the creative force behind the custom-built 50,000-square-foot property.

He explained to Architectural Digest that he put a contemporary spin on Beaux Arts architecture.

“In form, materials and execution, the structure is a proper 19th-century limestone mansion,” Rafauli said.

“But the exterior profiles are more minimal and the lines are a bit cleaner. This isn’t stucco, paint and fake gold. That’s not what Drake wanted, and that’s not what I do.”

Rafauli describes Drake’s interiors as “modern Art Deco”.

Drake’s humongous net worth has already shot up in 2024.

With that in mind, Drake’s personal request was to make the mansion “overwhelming high luxury”.

“I wanted to make sure people can see the work I’ve put in over the years reflected from every vantage point,” he said.

And we know he loves splashing the cash, like when he dropped serious money on Tupac’s ring and an extremely rare Bugatti – however he did get a private jet for free.

Drake’s fans got a glimpse into his mansion on social media, and his videos.

When To Say When & Chicago Freestyle and Toosie Slide both give them a peek.

Of note are the NBA regulation-size basketball court (featuring his brand’s owl logo in the center circle), recording studio and atmospheric indoor swimming pool.

Oh – and a 3,200-square-foot master bedroom with a mattress that probably costs more than your home.

‘Smaller’ details of Drake’s mansion, which he is said to call ‘The Embassy’, are also extravagant.

He has a one-ton bed, a two-story closet and a 4,000-pound bathtub carved from a single slab of black marble.

And this theme of luxurious materials is consistent throughout – with textiles by Alexander McQueen and Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Bronze, black granite, macassar ebony and brown agate all feature heavily.

Plus there’s a hallway dedicated to sports stars’ jerseys, sculptures by American artist KAWS and – of course – a selection of the IDGAF rapper’s Grammy Awards.

One expansive 44-foot-high living space called the ‘Great Room; contains a bespoke Bösendorfer concert grand piano.

The instrument was designed for the musician’s mansion in collaboration with Rafauli Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami.

Rafauli describes it as “an authentic marriage of artistry, craft and quality”.

“Drake’s world completely revolves around music, so he wasn’t going to buy just any piano,” Rafauli said.

Drake originally bought the plot of land for the project in 2015 for $6.7 million.

It’s located on Toronto’s exclusive Park Lane Circle.

He demolished the bungalow which sat on the site to build his mansion from the ground up.

His return to Toronto was, according to Drake himself, a chance to “forever remain solid in the place I was born”.

“I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel,” the God’s Plan singer said.

“It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong.”
