Mario Lemieux is no longer the owner of the most expensive home for sale in the Laurentians. He has been dethroned by owners of Canadian descent, who prefer anonymity, and have just put an opulent residence in Lac-Tremblant-Nord up for sale for almost $40 million, unprecedented in Quebec!

The 18,880-square-foot estate, whose construction spanned 2017-2019, features six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, two offices, a game room, gym, spa, triple garage and more, and a wine cellar that can accommodate 1200 bottles. “It is full of woodwork, stone, marble and rich materials. Nothing about this home was left to chance,” says Paul A. Dalbec, certified real estate agent at Immeubles Mont-Tremblant, a division of Royal LePage.

The villa at 730 Chemin Thomas-Robert sits on 52 acres of land and benefits from a geothermal system to heat it in winter and cool it in summer. The announcement adds that granite and oak add grand, refined and timeless character to the residence, in addition to the unique fittings, lighting and finishes.

The private road to the property is 700 meters long. “By keeping the road, we could build three or four additional buildings like guest houses on the land,” adds Paul Dalbec.

According to him, the land would also allow the installation of a swimming pool, a tennis court or a helipad.

Paul Dalbec claims that the future owner will probably come from Europe, where he will be based. “Finding a new owner in this niche is often done through referrals. It’s not an ad in the newspaper that sells the property. We are looking in North America, but also in Europe, being aware that most of the people who have large houses here have ties to Quebec,” he specifies.

Not all homeowners are the same when mortgage rates rise. “In the luxury real estate market, transactions starting at $3 million are settled in cash. It will probably be a third or fourth home for the owner, but it could also be a second home,” he said.

Even at $39.9 million, the owners say the pool table installed on the first floor is not involved in a potential sale of the property that they believe would have sentimental value, according to the realtor. “It wouldn’t take much for her to get picked up, though,” he says.

The property is close to Mont-Tremblant ski resort, parks and golf courses. It is also about forty minutes from La Macaza-Mont-Tremblant International Airport, where it is possible to land by private jet. Future owners could also reach their home by seaplane.
