Auto Racing Icon Jacques Villeneuve Lists Remote Cabin

Canadian auto racing legend Jacques Villeneuve—he was crowned Formula One World Champion in 1997—has his remote lakefront cabin in Quebec on the market for $5.07M. That seems like a lot of cash for a three-bed, three-bath log cabin an hour and a half from Montreal, but not when the 851 acre property is factored in, which includes the entire lake. Totally secluded and accessed down a private, 1.5-mile dirt road, the cabin is "energy independent" and, frankly, an unlikely place for a racing driver to seek solace. Perhaps this is where Villeneuve came up with the harebrained idea to start a music career. In 2007, he released his first album, Private Paradise, which despite his superstardom in the world of auto racing, sold just 836 copies in North America that year.
