Remember the chintzy, pimped-out McMansions that were a staple of the long-running MTV series Cribs? The Toronto home of mega recording artist Aubrey Drake Graham is something else altogether. Measuring 50,000 square feet, with amenities such as an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court crowned by a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight, Drake’s astonishing domicile certainly qualifies as extravagant.
But instead of vast expanses of cheap drywall and mountains of ungainly furniture upholstered with a hot glue gun, stately Drake Manor, as envisioned by Canadian architectural and interior designer Ferris Rafauli, is a marvel of old-world craftsmanship, constructed of limestone, bronze, exotic woods, and other noble materials. Every detail of the sprawling property has been meticulously conceived and executed. And there isn’t a Scarface poster in sight.
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! Full gallery below:
