The property: 1 St. Thomas St., Unit #22B

ROYAL LEPAGE/J & D DIVISION, BROKERAGE

The subtlety of the decor may not be what you would have expected from a world-renowned artist such as Drake who is best known for singing about late night partying, fancy cars and wild women. Sure there’s some masculine leather furniture and wood paneling but other than the loungy padded ceiling in the bedroom, the decor is more elegant than edgy (check out all the heavy drapes!).

The two bedroom, three bath condo is located in Toronto’s swanky Yorkville area just a block south of the famous ‘Mink Mile’ – home to stores like Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Cartier. Designed by architect Robert Stern, the 3,600 square foot unit has panoramic views of the city and the picturesque University of Toronto campus from each of it’s two heated patios.

The Wow Factor

For whatever this unit lacks in decor, it more than makes up for with amenities. Between the private elevator access, valet parking, 24-hour concierge service and indoor swimming pool, this property offers all the VIP amenities of staying at a hotel.

The Price: Drake may have trouble singing ’5am in Toronto’ once he sells this property which is currently listed at $4,195,000. The third in a string of properties the artist has offloaded this year, we can’t wait to see the next place the ‘Started from the Bottom’ star will call home.
