MONTREAL - Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemieux recently took possession of a new $20-million home in Mont Tremblant, Quebec's high end ski resort town.
The 1,500 square feet sprawling, Swiss castle-style mansion about 145 km north of Montreal has 23 rooms as well as 10 bathrooms.
The castle, which is made of stone and wood, is located on a piece of land close to Tremblant's golf course and ski hills. The castle also features a triple garage and a double garage, has an in-ground swimming pool and an outdoor tennis court with a heated floor.
Construction started in 2009 and according to QMI Agency sources, Lemieux often travelled to the construction site with his wife and four kids. The total cost of the home was reportedly $20-million.
1,500 square feet? $20 million? Either that is a typo or Mario overpaid for his mansion.
