Grand Estates Auction Co. to represent Magnificent Mansion in Hudson, Quebec
Oakleigh estate close to Montreal to be sold at July 12 ‘absolute’ auction —
Grand Estates Auction Co., the leading luxury real estate auction firm, is offering a spectacular 37-room country estate in Hudson, Quebec, which was named “one of the 10 prettiest towns in Canada” by Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine. The auction on Tuesday, July 12, will be “absolute,” where the lack of a minimum bid or reserve assures a prompt sale that benefits both buyer and seller. Reminiscent of a great English manor house, this waterfront mansion features cathedral ceilings, exotic wood floors, hand painted murals, an indoor pool and spa and is situated on five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens with 550 feet of waterfront and a private beach.
The 17, 000 square-foot property features nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms, as well as a spacious apartment for the convenience and privacy of house guests. A grand foyer with majestic cherry-wood double staircase and 8-foot Spanish alabaster chandelier sets the stage for country living at its finest upon entering the home. Exquisite details complete every room—from the kitchen with its granite countertops and stained glass to the master bedroom and bath which features Italian marble fireplace and countertops. Unparalleled lake views can be enjoyed from the light-filled kitchen, dining room as well as two-storey living room with its carved fireplace and Juliet balcony. Located only 35 minutes from Montreal and Trudeau international airport, this eight-year-old estate is well-situated for the finest country living experience in Hudson.
The picturesque town boasts quaint shops, a yacht club and tennis club, beautiful golf courses, antique shops, art galleries and live theatre, as well as extensive equestrian trails and a variety of restaurants. “The Absolute Auction outside of Montreal is an especially exciting one for Grand Estates Auction as it is the first auction we will do outside of a U.S. territory,” stated Stacy Kirk, President of Grand Estates Auction Company. “Due to the international contacts we have developed over the 12 last years as the leading luxury real estate auction company, we are well prepared to serve these sellers and buyers, and anticipate doing many more auctions throughout Quebec, Canada and beyond.”
The July 12 auction begins at 2:00 p.m. Prospective bidders may tour the property starting at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, July 8, and continuing until auction day. Grand Estates auctions are open only to registered bidders, who are required to submit a $100,000 refundable cashier’s or certified check prior to the auction.
