Featured Home Celebrity Edition | Jacques Villeneuve

15 November 2012, written by SIRC

You don’t need to be paparazzi to get a look inside celebrity homes. Want to know how a celebrity gets away from it all? Wonder no longer, we recently unveiled a one of a kind listing – the private getaway of Jacques Villeneuve.

Listed for $4,995,000, this fully-furnished home contains panoramic water and mountain views and comes complete with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 private lakes, and almost 2 kilometers of beach shoreline along the Riviere Rouge – all situated on 850 acres of pristine land.  Four lakes – Lac Gate, Lac Mikiwan, Lac Maple, surround the home and the home overlooks Lac Fraser.


The property is fully self-sustainable with an energy independent log home and private water supply from the property’s lake. Wood and propane heating allow the owner to truly live off the grid.

You can fish, hunt, and even white river raft on this vast estate.. The property even contains a private sugar shack— a small cabin where sap collected from sugar maple trees is boiled into maple syrup—very Québécois!

The home is located in Harrington, Quebec, a quiet township in the Laurentian Mountains with a population of just over 850.  While many people have their summer cottages here, the area boasts year-round appeal – brilliant autumn colours, water sports on the lake in the summer and stunning snowscapes in the winter.

From cozy nights in front of a roaring fire to days spent on one of your private lakes fishing for dinner, this is a place where you can unplug from the world and experience the best that nature has to offer.
