Singer Celine Dion Selling Private Island Estate in Montreal

by hookedonhouses on May 25, 2012

Celine Dion is one of those superstars who does everything up big, from her wedding to her ballads. Remember her $20 million “waterpark house” in Florida? Well, this 24,000 square-foot French Normandy-style chateau built on a private island near Montreal is pretty over the top, too. She’s selling it for about $29 million–take a look!

 

My daughter Lily walked in as I was looking at the grand staircase. “Wow,” she said, “those look like a lot of work. I wouldn’t want to walk up all those stairs every day. I hope she has an elevator!” (Don’t worry–she does.)

Dion and her husband-slash-manager René Angélil are reportedly selling the estate because they’re spending more time in the U.S. now. They’re downsizing to a smaller house in Quebec for future visits.

There’s a “completely custom La Cornue kitchen.”

The property is being sold “turn-key” with most of its contents.

The listing says there are 6 bedrooms and only 3 full baths in the house. I expected there to be more in a house this huge.

I’m puzzled by this bathroom because the tub seems to be sitting in the middle of what appears to be the landing at the top of the stairs. Hence the need for the privacy sheers around it, I guess.

Lily says the next room “doesn’t belongs in the same house.” It’s definitely a candidate for my “One of these rooms is not like the others…” series.

Curbed calls this her “dungeon-like wine cellar.” It is a little Phantom of the Opera with the candles and everything…

If you’re a celebrity who could use a little more privacy in your life, this estate would be perfect for you. Sitting on nearly 20 acres, the gated island includes a private bridge and a security station to keep the paps away.

Want it? For more photos and information, check the listing by Joseph Montanaro of Sotheby’s and the article in the WSJ (thanks to Kim for the link!).
