“The Chateau Fleur de Lys, is a craftsmen European style with Quebec influence, situated on the flank of Mont Tremblant in Quebec,” is how Real Estate company Engel & Volkers describes the property. “It offers a majestic panoramic view of renown Lake Tremblant, near 17,000 sq ft, and is a destination in itself.”

Michel Naud, the real estate agent for Engel & Volkers Tremblant says the magnificent house — which has been on the market since 2018 — has recently been re-listed after getting taken down throughout the pandemic.

Naud tells Daily Hive the Chateau Fleur de Lys took “nearly seven years to build” and said it would cost nearly $35 million to try and recreate today.

“It is a very special property and it will be sold to a special client or a special family,” he says, “and I feel that we are on the edge of finding our buyer…”
