Inside Pornhub owner’s incredible £13m mansion destroyed in ‘suspicious fire’

The luxury £13 million home of Pornhub CEO and co-founder Feras Antoon has been destroyed in a fire just days after going up for sale.

More than 80 firefighters tackled the blaze at the property in Montreal, Canada which was brought under control around 2.30am on Sunday, April 25.

Realtor Joseph Montanaro said Monday morning the damage was "very extensive" and that "everybody is in shock."

Police are investigating and believe the property, located in Montreal’s Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough, was the target of an arson attack, leading to a fire that ripped through the new build.

The incredible property first began construction in 2019 after Antoon, 45, purchased the land for $2million the same year.

But the build caused controversy in the neighbourhood after approximately 220 trees had to be cut down for the construction.

Situated on over 61,000 square feet of land, the three-level home included a double-height entry hall with an art gallery leading to an expansive living room, which boasted garden and pool views.

An aquarium lounge is situated to the right of the living area, with a gourmet chef’s kitchen on the left.

The upper floor of the residence consists of three children’s bedrooms as well as a guest bedroom — all with walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms.

On the opposite side of the home is the master suite, which boasts large his and her walk-ins, a sumptuous bathroom with a soaking tub made from a single piece of marble and a parents’ den.

The house boasts a whopping 12 bathrooms and eight bedrooms.

Police told The New York Post that they received a call around 11.30pm on Sunday from an eyewitness, who told them that two people had trespassed onto the Jean-Bourdon Avenue property.

By the time police arrived, the home was on fire and had spread rapidly.

The fire is said to have spread from the home's main building to another one next to it, with neighbours saying "the flames were like 50 metres high."

Police spokesman Julien Lévesque told VICE: "Police officers who arrived on site were able to see that the fire began inside the residence.

"Earlier this morning… our arson squad from Montreal police took charge of the investigation.

"They were onsite this morning to analyse all the scene, meet some witnesses to try to understand what was the cause and the circumstances of the beginning of this fire."

Neighbours say they were told to flee their homes while still in their pyjamas after being evacuated as a precaution.

Feras released a statement regarding the fire, saying: "Over the weekend, a fire occurred at my residence.

"The residence was under construction. I am grateful that my family and I and our neighbours are safe. Out of respect for the ongoing police investigation, I will not be commenting further."

There were no injuries reported and while the fire is still under investigation, no arrests have yet been made.
