Ever since Drake bought a two-acre plot of land in Toronto’s ultra-lux Bridle Path neighborhood back in 2016 and revealed plans for a palace-like mansion to call home, he’s been keeping us hooked on Instagram with little snapshots from the construction site.
Now, it appears that the massive 35,000-square-foot manse is finally finished, so Champagne Papi didn’t shy away from inviting his fans on a tour of the opulent home.
Naturally, said tour took place on Drake’s Instagram profile, as the Canadian-born artist made sure no uninvited guests get to see inside the property by erecting 4.4-meter high walls (double the maximum height allowed for the area, but he got the city to make an exception).
Drake’s new Toronto mansion — what we know so far
The In My Feelings rapper purchased a $6.7 million piece of land in North-East Toronto’s exclusive Bridle Path area in 2016.
The area is a lavish neighborhood set in North York, Toronto, lined with dazzling mansions owned by celebrities like Celine Dion or Robert Herjavec. Even Prince bought a home here back in 2001, after marrying Toronto-native Manuela Testolini.
Drake had big plans for the Bridle Path lot; and he soon started putting them in practice, with his palatial 35,000-square-foot manse starting to take shape. And since Champagne Papi is a sharer, he constantly kept us up to date with the progress, sharing videos on Instagram of the construction work underway.
Luckily, he didn’t stop sharing after the home was finished. Drake took to Instagram to give us a tour of the home in his story, and the it’s absolutely insane!
During the tour, the 33-year-old rapper shows off one of his living areas, complete with plush grey furniture decorated with cushions and slick, shiny coffee tables.
The expansive room is home to a roaring fireplace with a tall mirror hanging above it. Huge chandeliers scale the high ceilings and a grand piano sits in the corner of one of the rooms.
Drake also gave fans a glimpse of his mega kitchen, which boasts an opulent marble island and rows of navy blue chairs for his guests to casually dine at. Huge chandeliers adorn the ceiling while a grand piano sits in one of the living areas.
Oh, and did we mention the toilet? The rapper’s home comes with a rather unique toilet that plays soothing music to relax you while you, ahem, do your business. Not to mention it projects colorful lights and the lid lifts automatically, so even going to the bathroom can be a quite the experience.
Previous coverage reported that the master suite alone is twice the size of a regular apartment and features two covered decks, a hot tub, a dressing room, a kitchenette, and a steam shower, among other things.
The crib also features an NBA regulation-size basketball court, which couldn’t be a better fit for the Toronto Raptors global ambassador — exceeept when it’s branded with Drake’s own brand logo, OVO.
The mansion was designed by Ontario-based luxury home designer and builder Ferris Rafauli, and personalized to suite Toronto’s favorite son like a glove! And since there’s so many rooms of the house left for Drake to ‘gram, we’re looking forward to see what else Drake’s Toronto home has to show.
