The 50,000 square foot palace is nicknamed “The Embassy” and was a custom creation commissioned by Drake and built from the ground up with dope amenities.
“Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel,” the 33-year-old old AD. “It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong.”
The mansion is constructed of limestone, bronze, and exotic woods, making it a “proper 19th-century limestone mansion,” according to designer Rafauli.

Mega recording artist Drake (@champagnepapi) returned to his hometown of Toronto to once again plant roots there, building a 50,000-square-foot ultra-luxe pleasure dome. The stately manor, as envisioned by Canadian designer @ferrisrafauli, is a marvel of old-world craftsmanship, constructed of limestone, bronze, exotic woods, and other noble materials. “Because I was building it in my hometown, I wanted the structure to stand firm for 100 years. I wanted it to have a monumental scale and feel,” Drake says of his passion project. “It will be one of the things I leave behind, so it had to be timeless and strong,” he adds.

Drakes house has some pretty dope things in it. I took a look at the house and it makes me want to come over. If you’re into playing basketball he has a full-size NBA regulated court, a pool in the basement, and a roof terrace to name a few.
The master bedroom is what caught my eye the most!!! His master bedroom is a whole 3,200 square foot. Thats like bigger than any other apartment I have ever lived in. His bathtub is black marble and 4,000 lbs. His closet is two stories….. that’s a lot of room for a lot of clothes and my favorite SHOES.
“The bed lets you float, the shower lets you escape and gather your thoughts, and the closet makes you want to talk to yourself while you’re getting dressed,” he said.
