Mario Lemieux, Hockey Hall of Famer and owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, has listed his Quebec castle with a very pointed price tag: $21,999,066.
The specific amount reflects Lemieux’s jersey number, and also means that the home is the most expensive single-family home ever for sale in Mont-Tremblant.
It will certainly be a big score for whoever decides to purchase the property, which is being handled by broker Michel Naud of Engel Völkers. Lemieux’s home, or Chateau Fleur de Lys, as it is called, flanks Mont Tremblant, the highest-ranked ski resort in East North America, and overlooks Lake Tremblant. Every bedroom comes with a lake view, and the lake can be seen from the tower as well.
Designed by architect Rémi Fortier, the home (or castle) was designed in a traditional European style with Quebec influence. The exterior of the home is made with Champlain stones and a split cedar and copper roof. Inside, local pine beams are used in the ceilings, as well as European oak floors.
The home has 17,000 square feet of living space, with 50 rooms in total, including 4. 5 dining areas, 17 fireplaces, a bunkered home theater, a wine cellar, a pool and spa and pool house as well, a paddle tennis court, a gym, and a separate two-bedroom guesthouse.
Additional features include heated floors throughout the property, a geothermal system with five wells, five washers and dryers, a loggia pizza kitchen, 4. 5 garages, and a walk-in refrigerator. The castle is being sold furnished, which means fans of the legendary hockey player will have a lot to admire (or auction off).
