Drake is one of the few stars with an eye for extravagance, and he not only enjoys the finer things in life but knows where to get the finest of them all. The Grammy-winning rapper and business mogul is a tremendous dreamer who has pursued certain ambitions all his life.

With a net worth of $250 Million, it’s no surprise that the rapper owns opulent homes in several locations. However, where does Drake reside?

Drake always relaxes in style wherever he hangs out, whether in cottages, townhouses, grand estates, or penthouse apartments. We have discussed the breathtaking mansions owned by Drake below. Dive in!

Who is Drake?

Aubrey Drake Graham, stage name Drake, was born on 24 October 1986 and is a man of many talents. The 33-year-old Canadian is a singer, rapper, songwriter, producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

Drake achieved stardom twice. His first break was at 15 years old as an actor when he played Jimmy in Degrassi: The Next Generation for 7 years.

In 2009, the rapper released his third album, called ‘So Far Gone,’ which featured singles that made it to charts like Rolling Stone’s list of 25 best songs of 2009.

Since then, the Canadian rapper’s music career has taken off, and he has become a household name, winning many awards and accruing wealth.

In October 2017, Drake and Sophie Brussaux welcomed a son named Adonis Graham. They kept him secret for almost a year and introduced him to the world in June 2018.

Drake’s Childhood Home

Before Drake became one of the most famous entertainers in the world, he was a simple boy who grew up in a humble Toronto apartment.

He and his mom resided on Weston Road in the working-class west portion of the city and participated in minor hockey with the Weston Red Wings. In 2000, he finally relocated to Forest Hill, one of the city’s wealthy neighborhoods.

Where Does Drake Live?

Given his unending success and a reported net worth of $150 million, you may have expected Drake to have a rather wealthy home, but the reality exceeds your expectations.

1. Drake’s House-Toronto

His use of the phrase “The Embassy” for this residence in the Bridle Path neighborhood goes beyond simple irony. Although Drake’s mansion was given a more modern twist, it is based on architectural designs from traditional Beaux Arts architecture.

The well-known musician follows a maximalist décor, from huge chandeliers to high ceilings around his house and not only in the living room.

The lounge room, with its low sofas, dim glowing yellow stone, and dim but sparkling ceiling stars, is concealed between the imperial hallways.

Drake’s mega-mansion measures 50,000 square feet and has amenities such as an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court crowned by a 21-square-foot pyramidal skylight.

Drake has stated that his favorite room is his 3,200-square-foot master bedroom suite, with an additional 1,100 square feet of covered terraces. The master suite also has a hot tub, a steam shower, two covered decks, a dressing room, and a kitchenette.

Drake’s mansion made its music video debut in Toosie Slide, and each room caught everyone’s eye for different reasons.

As a music and sports fan, Drake has designated hallways in his home for his memorabilia, like entertainment awards and sports jerseys from each.

There is a trophy room specifically for all of his awards, a cul-de-sac that is 35 meters wide, and a garage that is 2,000 square feet and can fit 10 cars.

The stunning home has a spa, a screening theatre, a massage room, a gym, a pool in the basement, and a hot tub on the top.

And did we forget to mention the restroom with a 4000-pound carved black marble bathtub? The rapper’s residence has an unusual toilet that plays calming music to help you unwind while you use it. It also displays vibrant lights, and the lid opens on its own, making even using the restroom an interesting experience.

Lastly, a 44-foot lofty room perfectly combines art and craft through the bespoke psychedelic concert piano. It was designed by popular Austrian piano maker Bösendorfer, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, and designer Ferris Rafauli in vivid, colorful skulls.

The piano is below a chandelier with over 20,000 pieces of hand-cut Swarovski crystal originally meant for New York’s Metropolitan Opera House.

Hidden Hills Estate

The Hidden Hills estate has three adjacent houses. Known for his parties, Drake made a commitment to the neighbors that if his way of life interfered with their privacy or became out of control, he would buy their homes. He kept his word.

Drake invested in two homes there. His YOLO Residence is a 6.7-acre Hidden Hills estate that he purchased along with two neighboring homes, one for $3 million and the other for $4.5 million.

2). YOLO Estate

Although this Drake house is not as luxurious as the above homes, it still stands out. The mansion features a brick and exposed beam ceiling where the flooring is made with both brick tiles and wood.
