Here Now, Celine Dion's Utterly Insane Private Island Estate

New, 50 comments

Celine Dion has listed her 24,000-square-foot private island estate, located some 15 minutes from Montreal, for 29.3M, and one really has to wonder: what would the 24,000-square-foot private island estate of a Vegas headliner who wore a "seven-pound tiara composed of 2,000 Austrian crystals" for her wedding and was once fined for using 6.5M gallons of water a year to fill her pool at her Florida compound actually look like?

Yup, exactly. According to the Wall Street Journal, Dion and husband René Angélil have been spending more time south of the Canadian border recently, which is why they're trying to unload the French Normandy-style castle. In addition to the dizzingly opulent interiors, the pop star will also leave behind Persian rugs, linens, china, flatware, art, and her massive collection of antique furniture, which are all included in the purchase price. Some standout details: a foyer with inlaid marble floors, a dungeon-like stone wine cellar, and a pool house with its own kitchen. All this on an 830,000-square-foot private island that's accessible only by a gated bridge. Don't worry, though, "a helipad can be created to make access by air possible."
