  • He bought two lots of land next in a Montreal nature reserve for CAN$2.3 million (US$1.8 million)
  • He paid cash four years ago and has spent millions more building the home of his dreams 
  • DailyMail.com can reveal that the luxury mansion is near completion and the home backs on to Montreal’s ‘Mafia Row’ where many crime figures live
  • Pornhub has been hit with claims it was hosting videos of underage sex 
  • The company temporarily halted unverified users from uploading videos
  • In a complaint filed Tuesday in California, alleged victims say the company ‘knew it was partnering with and profiting from a sex trafficking venture for years’

The massive mansion standing on the edge of a nature reserve is testament to the millions of dollars to be made from porn, as the company faces claims it was facilitating the exploitation of children and sex trafficking victims.

For this is the house that porn built — the brand-new chateau in Montreal that Pornhub boss Feras Antoon will soon call home.

Syrian-born Antoon, 45, bought two lots of land next to the Bois-de-Saraguay nature park on the northern edge of Montreal for CAN$2.3 million (US$1.8 million) cash four years ago and spent millions more building the home of his dreams ever since.

And now, he is watching his deluxe mansion, complete with a six-car garage, near completion.

It backs on to Montreal’s ‘Mafia Row’ where many crime figures live. On the very spot that Antoon’s home is being built, a gunman stood and fired a single bullet through a double-paned window, killing Nicolo Rizzuto — ‘The Canadian Godfather’ — in his kitchen in 2010.
