Marois Property Sells for $6.5M

A Belgian pays $6.5 million for a property at l’Île-Bizard.

Pauline Marois’ property situated on l’Île-Bizard finally found a buyer. On sale since July 2009, the luxurious property called “La Closerie” was passed on to a Belgian buyer. The Marois-Blanchet couple was asking for an amount in the $7 million for the mansion.

On the notary documents from May 28, 2012, it is possible to read that the disbursed price is $6,475,500. The property’s value according to the municipal evaluation in 2011 was $ 3,805,600.

The mansion is 12,000 square feet and has seven rooms and seven washrooms. It is directly inspired by the Château de Moulinsart architecture that can be seen in Tintin comic books. In addition to the splendid house in the north of Montreal, Gestion C. Blanchet also sold two lots on Joly Street. The two lots were vacant which cost the strangers more than $86,000.

The sale of the land on the edge of the Prairies River had been blocked for several months due to problems with the status of the couple on Canadian territory. Patrice Rochemont, a French-Belgian real estate promoter and his wife had a hard time obtaining their permanent Canadian residency status.

Pauline Marois and her husband recently acquired a luxury condo worth $2.5 million in Old-Montreal.
The transaction was concluded in early April.

The apartment is situated in the Saint-Régis patrimonial building in Old-Montreal. Mr. Blanchet is the official buyer.
Mrs. Marois and Mr. Blanchet will have to disburse approximately $50, 000 in fees to live in their new condo on Saint-Jacques Street.
