Sotheby's International Realty Canada (SIRC) is exclusively unveiling a one-of-a-kind listing in Montreal, QC.
Listed for $29,655,500 CAD, the 24,000 sq ft custom-built French Normand style Chateau is currently owned by Canadian singing legend, Celine Dion and her husband, Rene Angelil.
Splendidly situated on an 830,000 sq ft private island, the magnificent stone mansion features a luxurious, classical interior, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and unrivaled finishings and detailing. The main floor features a formal living room and dining room seating eighteen, completely custom "la Cornue" kitchen, spectacular paneled library and family room with custom fireplaces and built-ins, informal dining and sun rooms and an office.
A majestic winding staircase leads to the second level, featuring the master's suites as well as the children's suite. The third storey houses a guest bedroom and home gym with state of the art equipment. Tranquil water views are present from almost every room and a customized elevator makes moving through the residence a breeze. On the lower level, one will find a handsome games' room and a vaulted stone wine cellar with integrated tasting room.
The exterior features numerous stone terraces from which one can appreciate the surrounding water views and natural forested environment, a large in-ground pool and fabulous pool house.
"The estate is an architectural masterpiece. This property will have international appeal, and in fact, we have already had a flurry of interest from our Sotheby's International Realty global networks for this very exclusive listing," said CEO of Sotheby's International Realty Canada, Ross McCredie.
"This one-of-a-kind home is being offered as a turn-key purchase with almost all of its contents - in short, it is an exceptional offering, befitting the most discriminate of real estate buyers," said listing agent and Sotheby's International Realty Quebec Broker Joseph Montanaro.
According to representatives of Ms. Dion and Mr. Angelil, "The house is being sold because of an intensive performance schedule over the next few years. The property is currently underutilized so the family is looking at downsizing into a smaller home. Ms. Dion's roots and family are here in Quebec, and as such, she will maintain a residence here."
