It is not the first time we hop in with Kevin Perreault & Vincent Bussière from Sotheby’s International Realty Québec. Read one of our previous stories here. This time, they convinced me to get out of the usual urban playground and visit a one of a kind luxury mansion they recently co-listed with Bea Jarzynska, located in Candiac on the south shore of Montréal.
About the neighbourhood
Candiac is home to a lot of wealthy families who chose to raise their kids in a suburb with good schools, services and shopping destinations. It is also literally a 10 min drive from downtown by the Victoria bridge.
“Many NHL hockey players like Carey Price, Guillaume Latendresse and Steve Begin also chose to buy in this area over the years, since it is conveniently located close to the Habs training facility” explains Vincent Bussière.
Inside the Mansion
Conceived by Concepteur Architectural Mario Adornetto and tastefully decorated by Sandrine Colonna this house is majestic and impose its grandeur when driving up the road that borders the Candiac Golf Club.
On the main floor you will find a grand entrance-hall opening to a spectacular living room plunged in day-light due to the abundance of panoramic windows and 21 ft vaulted ceilings.
The kitchen itself is a masterpiece with magnificent granite counters and professional appliances which connects to a four season BBQ area leading directly to a sunny atrium designed to relax in front of a wood fire place.
Kevin and Vincent couldn’t help taking pictures with their smart phones. These guys just kept on snapping everything! But you’ll understand why very shortly…
The perfect entertainment setup
This house belongs to notorious Canadian music producer and radio personality MC Mario, who sold more than 3.5M albums in career. As we’re about to meet him the a wing of the mansion that is completely devoted to his office and studio, we walk by several gold disc frames.
“The backyard and the house were conceived for maximum comfort of our guests. The pool, outdoor kitchen and sunny atrium made for very fun birthday parties, as our kids grew up. The little boisé and the golf course at the back also provides us with great intimacy” told us MC Mario.
Additional summer pictures provided by Sotheby’s.
I personally enjoyed the wooden atrium annexed to the house which provides that chalet feeling in the winter and has the ability to completely open up during summer days.
Underneath it all
When I thought I had seen it all, we go down to the basement, or should I say, the fun house. Underneath this posh house lies a pool poom, a Shisha / cigar smoking room with humidor, a massage / sauna room and exercise gym. This property is so big, there’s an extra room downstairs they didn’t even know what to do with!
