Drake’s future wife will be locked and loaded with a closest full of Birkin’s the rapper has been collecting for years.
Earlier this week, Drake shared the first photos of his 50,000 sq. ft. custom-built Toronto mansion, nicknamed The Embassy, in the new issue of Architectural Digest.
Drake’s favorite room in the house is his 3,200 sq. ft. master-bedroom which includes an “additional 1,100 sq. ft. of covered terraces.” One thing that caught the eye of Drake’s fan was his two-story closet which showcases his, “extensive wardrobe, sneaker collection, and the array of precious Hermès Birkin bags that he has been amassing for years.”
Many were curious why Drake was stocking up on expensive Birkin bags, which can range in price from $5,000 to $300,000.
The rapper worked with interior designer Ferris Rafauli to design the 50,000 compound. The home comes with amenities such as an NBA regulation-size indoor basketball court and massive movie theater.
Architectural Digest shared the exclusive home snaps writing, “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.”
Drake told AD, “It’s overwhelming high luxury. That message is delivered through the size of the rooms and the materials and details of the floors and the ceilings. I wanted to make sure people can see the work I’ve put in over the years reflected from every vantage point.”
Drake purchased the land he built the home on for $6.7 million located in the fancy Bridle Path neighborhood.
