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.
The view of entire private island.
I love the slate roof. It’s stunning.
The traditional French architecture is evident as soon you open the door of this mansion.
Beautiful wooden work on the staircase.
A sitting area by the foyer. Beautiful inlayed marble floors.
A better view of the entire foyer and staircase.
This space is very elegant and I like floors.
Very formal and I think the design fits this home well.
The formal living and dining rooms are made with solid wood herringbone floors with figurative inlays.
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.
Could you relax and read your favorite book in here? Beautiful coffee table.
A door opens to what I believe to be Rene’s office.
TVs and some special items are well kept in the built-ins.
This could be where Rene (Celine Dion’s husband and manager) have business meetings.
A better view of the entire office.
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.
Do you think Celine Dion has enough plates for all the guests? 😉
This space connects to the eating area and to the sunroom.
The sunroom is used as a casual eating area and it has stone walls and Jerusalem stone floors.
This is the formal eating area. Do you like it?
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.
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.
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!
The bedroom has many French antiques.
Another view of Celine’s bedrooms.
The bed seems to be so comfy!
The hallway to the ensuite.
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.
I see this bed and I imagine this could be her son’s when he was younger. Notice the leather flooring.
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.
Very contemporary and very comfy. I love the couch. I could spend all day there. 🙂
This guest bedroom is perfect for a bachelor.
Back to normal… This guest bedroom feels welcoming and elegant.
This chaise is simply perfect. I love this sitting area.
The wine tasting room, or should I say, dining room?
Do you like it or do you think it’s a little bit over the top?
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.
The fenced patio.
The back of the house and its backyard.
The view from upstairs. Notice the pool and the play area behind the trees.
The pool and the pool house.
This pool house is very charming.
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.
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!
