This one-of-a-kind residence was designed by world-famous architect Karl Fisher. It is situated at the end of a residential street, with no direct neighbours, and overlooking Lake Saint-Louis, within proximity to the airport.
Leading to the main entrance are carved columns and an imposing ornamental wrought iron gate. A 50-foot stone tower and its two diminutive versions rise above the slate and copper roof. The driveway and outdoor parking were laid in Porfidi stone imported from Italy.
This Chateau is comprised of over 20 rooms boasting elegant interiors showcasing the warmth of stone materials throughout. Guests are greeted by an entrance hall composed of 4 arched doors in cut and carved stone and a clear view to the hand-painted sky of the second-floor ceiling. The living room, with its renaissance-style stone fireplace, and the dining room, offer water views. A den showcases a vaulted ceiling in stone, ornamented and curved by a stone mosaic. A chef’s kitchen overlooks the pool, surrounded by its hand-carved stone columns.
A self-bearing cut stone staircase leads to the bedroom level with open views up to the underside of the turret. The Master bedroom with direct views onto Lac St-Louis was designed to bathe the room in natural light, with its large windows and huge outdoor terrace with heated floors. A luxurious master ensuite with a soaker tub, spa-like shower, dual vanities, and bedside fireplace completes the suite. This level floor offers three additional bedrooms, two with lake views and the third featuring an ensuite bathroom. Through the master bedroom, a door leads to an incredible studio space with its own entrance and bathroom.
One of the more exceptional spaces of the residence is the basement. The barrel-vaulted tasting room and wine cellar will take you to a different era with its old masonry stone wall and stone floor slabs. Replete with a refined bar, lounge area, billiards room, and additional kitchen, this space redefines what can be done on a lower floor. For the car collector, this residence features a remarkable stone driveway accommodating many vehicles leading to the primary two-car garage.
