World-wide famous Canadian singer Celine Dion has finally sold her French-Norman inspired chateau in Quebec for a reportedly $28.2 million. The singer and her husband put the luxury residence up for sale last year because the pair did not have enough time to spend in it, and it is too big for their needs, according to Ross McCredie, the president and CEO of Sotheby’s International Canada. The 24,000-square-foot custom-built and slate-roofed stone mansion is set the 830,000-suare-foot secluded gated, security-guarded island near Laval, Île Gagnon and has been sold with most of its contents, except for the singer’s “personal effects.”
Built in 2001, the three-story mansion has 6 bedrooms and 6 baths and boasts “tranquil water views” from almost any of the rooms. The finishing and details of the interiors are exquisite. The lower level features an impressive games room and a stone-walled wine cellar and unique built-in tasting room. On the main floor are a formal living room and a formal dining room which seats 18, a state-of-the-art custom “la Cornue” kitchen, a majestic paneled library and family room with fireplaces, informal dining room and sun room and a study. The second floor is reached by a spectacular stairwell and reveals the master suites and the children’s suite. On the third floor there is a guest bedroom and exercise room with cutting edge equipment.
Outdoors the estate encompasses countless stone terraces providing magnificent vistas of the water and woods, an expansive in-ground swimming pool and incredible pool house. No detail was spared either indoors or outdoors, which will definitely befit the discerning buyer.
