Perched above the Baie-des-Chaleurs near the village of Escuminac, among the rolling hills of Quebec’s Gaspésie region, this sprawling 300-acre estate comes with a 16-bedroom wooden castle, two libraries, a grand banquet hall, and watchtowers.
And at an asking price of just $650,000, it's a castle that even a paper bag princess can afford.
“Château Bahia is unique due to its architecture above all,” said real estate broker François Renaud. “Moreover, the view over the bay and the immensity of the forest terrain are an asset.”
Proprietor Jean Roussy built the structure, called Château Bahia, in stages between 1983 and 1999 and operated it as an auberge from May to October, according to a description of the property provided by Renaud.
The castle boasts unique features, like the owner's personal tower, which comes with two bedrooms, a bathroom, a library, and a number of turrets — to fend off attacking armies, presumably.
A new report from Royal LePage suggests that while Montreal's real estate market might start to cool down, home prices are still projected to increase more overall than any other market in Canada.
The company recorded a 21.7% year-over-year increase in the "aggregate price of a home" ("a weighted average of the median values of all housing types collected") in the Montreal area in the second quarter of 2021, bringing it to $514,000.
Now that the dust has settled on the Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup loss, Habs fans have pointed out that Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy's uniform looked suspiciously inflated in a post-game photo.
And since we all know Habs fans are the calmest and most level-headed hockey fans out there, the question is: did Vasilevskiy really use illegal goalie equipment or is this a nonsense complaint from sad and angry Canadiens fans?
The photo in question, posted on TSN's official Instagram page, shows Carey Price and Vasilevskiy standing face to face with Vasilevskiy looking awfully puffed up compared to Price — from the viewer's perspective, at least.
Following Wednesday's game, several Habs fans took to Twitter with unfounded accusations of illegal equipment.
Did Tampa hoard an extra player inside Vasilevskiy’s equipment? That’s so typical. Cheater franchise. https://t.co/CRSAIigOjO
