Celine Dion’s New House For Sale

  Celine Dion has her new house for sale. The international superstar and her husband, Rene Angelil, built the custom stone mansion in 2001. The house is located on a private island measuring over 830,000 square feet in Montreal, Canada. Celine Dion is selling her new house as turn-key with almost all its contents, including all the furniture (most antiques); artwork; decorative accessories; Persian rugs; linens; china; glassware; flatware and more.

A private gated bridge with security post welcomes you onto the island which is completely fenced in for maximum privacy and security.  If one prefers, a helipad can be created to make access by air possible. In the style of a French Normand Chateau, the 24,000 square foot residence is completely sheathed in stone with dramatic slate roof.  The luxurious classical interiors are unrivaled in their finishing 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, sunrooms and an office.

A beautiful 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 of the house.

On the lower level, you will find a games’ room and a vaulted stone wine cellar with integrated tasting room.  The exterior features numerous stone terraces from which you can appreciate the surrounding water views and natural forested environment, a large in-ground pool and fabulous pool house equipped with its own kitchen and built-in grill making outdoor entertaining a delight.

Celine Dion and Angelil usually live in Florida but use the Montreal residence when they come home to Quebec and I’ve heard her mother lives very close by.

If you’re wondering why Celine is selling this house, we haven’t this confirmed but, the house was broke into in September of 2011. According to CTV News, a 36-year-old man allegedly broke into Celine Dion’s house near Montreal, raided the fridge and even took the time to pour himself a bath! He was nabbed by the police after the alarm system went off.  “He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath (and) he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge,” Di Genova said. “The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: Hey, guys what are you doing here?’,” Di Genova said. “So the officers replied: ‘What are you doing here?’ and they proceeded to put him under arrest.”

Police say they found various stickers around the house. They had times and the names of people on them but the notes were not threatening.

Could this be the reason Celine Dion has her new house for sale? Perhaps, but she’s in no rush, with a price tag of $29,655,500, I’m not sure how fast it will sell.

 

 

Arial View

Completely private.

Island

The view of entire private island.

Front

Le chateau.

Roof

I love the slate roof. It’s stunning.

Foyer

The traditional French architecture is evident as soon you open the door of this mansion.

Staircase

Beautiful wooden work on the staircase.

Open

A sitting area by the foyer. Beautiful inlayed marble floors.

Above

A better view of the entire foyer and staircase.

Parlor 

This space is very elegant and I like floors.

Dining Room

Very formal and I think the design fits this home well.

Living Room

The formal living and dining rooms are made with solid wood herringbone floors with figurative inlays.

Library

 This is a very traditional library and nothing really surprises me here. We have seen this look way too many times. But, there’s many stunning pieces and the room itself is done with excellent materials.

All

Could you relax and read your favorite book in here? Beautiful coffee table.

Ahead

A door opens to what I believe to be Rene’s office.

Media

TVs and some special items are well kept in the built-ins.

Meetings 

This could be where Rene (Celine Dion’s husband and manager) have business meetings.

Room

A better view of the entire office.

Kitchen

Stunning! Traditional and timeless. It’s evident that Celine loves La Cornue!

The gourmet chef’s kitchen features solid wood cabinetry, granite counters, amazing 62” cooktop with commercial hood 4 prep sinks, built-in rotisserie appliance, 3 ovens, 2 dishwashers, 2 built-in 36” Subzero refrigerators, 4 fridges, hard wired professional Elektra Espresso machine and more.

Butler’s Pantry

Do you think Celine Dion has enough plates for all the guests? ;-)

Doors

This space connects to the eating area and to the sunroom.

Sunroom

The sunroom is used as a casual eating area and it has stone walls and Jerusalem stone floors.

Eating Area

This is the formal eating area. Do you like it?

Color

 I truly like the table, but I think the curtains are too heavy for this room. Also, there’s too much of the same color on the wallpaper, curtains and chairs.

Family Room

The family room has a very large and comfortable sofa and a wall-to-wall built-in.  Notice the steps on the right (behind the sofa) to the eating area.

Room

The beautiful buit-in and the fireplace. Notice the picture of Celine and her family above the mantel.

Celine Dion’s Bedroom

The mater bedroom is dreamy. About the room: the bedroom has delicate wall moldings, an exquisite canopy bed and boasts a separate boudoir with double height ceilings, separate soaking tub quarters for the ultimate relaxing experience, classical ensuite bathroom with vaulted marble shower and the ultimate walk-in closet!

French- Flair

The bedroom has many French antiques.

Other Side

Another view of Celine’s bedrooms.

Zzzzzz

The bed seems to be so comfy!

Vanity

Feminine.

To Ensuite

The hallway to the ensuite.

Bathroom

The tub is extraordinary, but I don’t like the carpeting, even tough it seems to be a place only for the tub and closets. Unique.

Guest Bedroom

I see this bed and I imagine this could be her son’s when he was younger. Notice the leather flooring.

What???

I know! You probably are thinking I’ve made a mistake, right? But, no! This is still Celine’s house! This is another wing of the house, for her kids.

Modern

Very contemporary and very comfy. I love the couch. I could spend all day there. :-)

Bedroom

This guest bedroom is perfect for a bachelor.

Guest Bedroom

Back to normal… This guest bedroom feels welcoming and elegant.

Lounge

This chaise is simply perfect. I love this sitting area.

Basement

The wine tasting room, or should I say, dining room?

Stones

Do you like it or do you think it’s a little bit over the top?

Perfect?

This place is perfect for a Halloween party. Can you imagine Celine dressed as a vampire and drinking red wine? :-)

Games & Walls

Celine displays her success on these walls.

Patio

The fenced patio.

Back

The back of the house and its backyard.

View

The view from upstairs. Notice the pool and the play area behind the trees.

Pool

The pool and the pool house.

Pool House

This pool house is very charming.

In

The pool house is the perfect place to have some BBQ and enjoy the beautiful garden views. It comes equipped with its own kitchen and built-in grill.

Skies

A nice view of the house.

Even if this isn’t your style, one thing we can’t deny, this house was built with an extensive attention to detail and truly amazing materials. But regardless of it all, would you pay almost $30 mil for it?

I can’t wait to hear your opinion about Celine Dion’s house!

 

Have a Blessed week!

  1. Wow I am tired just from looking at all the pictures..can you imagine living there? Haha….definitely beautiful in some ways but very overdone in many others, not my personal taste a little too “frou frou” most enarmored with that amazing china pantry though…..wow thats a pretty amazing space!! Celine lives large, but she earned it, her story remains one of my favorites!

  2. Adrienne said,

    Not even if I could afford it. Too heavy, formal, gaudy. A leather floor? Seriously.

  3. designchic said,

    hmmmm…a little much for my taste and 30 million a little much for my budget!! Hope you and your precious family are doing well ~

  4. oh dear

    i could not fathom living here, far too gaudy and over the top……way over. but i do like the living on a private island concept
    best to you & yours lucianne!

  5. Kathy said,

    nope, nah dah…less is more is my new motto

  6. Karen said,

    Way, way, way over the top. Seriously, I can appreciate some of the features in this home, but who in their right mind would want all that space? Must be for entertaining her large family!

  7. Katy said,

    Really, a slide in the formal pool area? Tacky is an understatement.

  8. Manderley said,

    Well I don’t really like the look ostentatious, this house would delight of Marie Antoinette and Louis VXI. I think that some rich people should be more modest and not have as many claims as it is a bit tacky. Although I acknowledge that the house has fine materials and good.
    I’m sorry, it’s too much for me, I could not cook in the kitchen, where I put the pan? hehee

    Kisses dear Luciane
    have a goog week!!

  9. andee said,

    shoot the interior designer
    the house could be lovely for a person like her who needs staff

    Hi Luciane,
    This home is way to formal and overdone for me. It does not feel like a home. Seriously how could you have a conversation at that dining room table. The people across from you are almost another room away? I don’t like all the dark colors, it does not have a happy feel to it, can’t imagine kids in the home.

  11. Megan said,

    Wow- slightly gobsmacked! Which doesn’t happen to be often let me tell you! Way, way, way over the top-just like her I guess. I cannot even imagine living there, never mind have my kids there. Looks like a museum, not a home. Even if I had the money wouldn’t buy it. Even if it were given to me wouldn’t want it! I know everyone has their own taste- but Wow!

  12. Luciane,
    Whoa, that’s some house. Too bad after custom building she is moving. I’m also surprised that someone could break in so easily. Thanks for the tour.
    Karen

  13. Gloria said,

    Hello, Luciane! Long time, no see (I haven’t been blogging lately). My take on this house? If I had 30 mil and that was my style, YES, I’d buy it! It’s luxurious to say the least. I LOVE that pool house, if nothing else! May I pin it? I think you said you don’t mind someone pinning your pics. If not, just let me know and I’ll remove. Thanks!
    Best,
    Gloria
    P.S. Hope you and your hubby and kids have been well and you are enjoying the little one. He’s probably getting big now, time flies!

  14. Hello, Gloria.

    You can pin as many as you want! You know me… I’m a pinholic!!! :-)

    If I win the lottery, this is the fist thing will buy. That house fits perfectly my tastes even if some rooms are quite “a little frou frou” as somebody wrote above. There are a couple of things that I’d like to change but I would still keep it as is like a musium on Celine. I would see that mansion as a great B&B or hotel with its four dining room including the sunroom. I have always dreamed of visitting that house. Thanks a lot for the tour, I could see more pictures here.

    In love love love with that butler’s pantry. Finally!!!! someone who knows what a butler’s pantry should be and actually has one. Not just a tiny shelf/cupboard masquerading as one.

    I like the idea of leather floors. quieter than tile or hardwood. softer and easier on the feet, and probably much warmer in cold weather. Not sure if I’m crazy enough to actually incorporate them in my house, but I appreciate the idea behind it. Though I imagine cleaning would be hard to, price would be crazy high, and I imagine it wouldn’t do well with kid traffic. Wear and tear etc. I’ve seen leather walls, leather closet doors, leather floors might be just a tad much.

  17. vivian said,

    love the butler’s pantry and the modern looking family room. The rest belongs to some long lost castle in france. She will have some difficulty selling because of the price, and because of the very severe winters we have in canada, the rich will not spend that kind of money to live in Canada. But i could be wrong!

  18. Gizelle said,

    I love it…but…not as much…as I love…Celine’s heart! Am so very happy for the love, and success she has found in her life. May the Lord continue to bless this wonderful girl that has grown into a beautiful woman that still knows…the most precious things in life…are not those things you can see or touch…but only that which is felt with the heart.
    Continued blessings of good health and long life to she, and all her beautiful family.

    Gizelle

    I’m with you Gizelle…she HAS earned this. franki

  20. Kathy said,

    Again…I’d take the pool house. This is stunning and so much craftsmanship went into it, but I just can’t imagine why someone with so much $ wouldn’t rather start a charity or something to help those who can’t feed their kids out…I guess it is just so much that you wonder why her and her husband need ~that~ to soothe their souls…but thanks for posting this beautiful home..my favorite part was the wine room

  21. Tim said,

    I love this house. I would make some minor changes, but not many. For one get rid of that leather flooring, and I am not one to like red couches. I would also take away some of the frou frou in some pieces of furniture and replace them with something more my style, but most of the furniture I would leave.
