For Sale: Mario Lemieux's $22 Million Castle in Quebec
Take a peek inside the Pittsburgh Penguin owner’s 17,000-square-foot, 50-room chateau.
You can be the king of Mario Lemieux's castle — that is, if you've got an extra $22 million to spare.
The famed former hockey player and current owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins is selling his mansion in Quebec for $21,999,066, according to the listing. The player’s primary residence is in Sewickley. The last $66 on the price tag are a nod to Lemieux’s jersey number when he played for the Penguins between 1984 and 2006, according to ESPN.
The castle, titled “The Château Fleur de Lys,” is situated on the flank of Mont Tremblant, a popular ski resort in the Laurentian Mountains, about 80 miles northwest of Montreal. It overlooks Lake Tremblant. Broker Michel Naud of Engel & Völkers is selling the house, which was completed in 2012 after several years of construction.
Architect Rémi Fortier designed the 16,794 square foot mansion in a traditional European style with a Quebec influence. The exterior of the home is made with Champlain stones and a split cedar and copper roof. The interior floors are made of European Oak and the ceilings were constructed from local pine beams. Each of the castle’s eight bedrooms, as well as a large outdoor terrace, offer a view of Lake Tremblant.
If you're wondering how to outfit a nearly 17,000-square-foot space, Lemieux has got you covered. The mansion, which contains 13 bathrooms, 17 fireplaces, five washers and dryers, a pool and gym, a home theater, a paddle tennis court and a wine cellar, comes fully furnished.
