Standing on Chemin des Méandres, this home built in 2006 draws its charm from its spacious but still cozy and warm spaces thanks to the surrounding greenery, the neutral tones of the interior and the backyard that is worthy of a spa.
We know Rioux visit this home because she shared this room on Instagram a while back and it's still there in the highlight titled House visits. Also, because the realtor Carolane Piché confirmed it with MTL Blog. Piché also confirmed the house has been sold, but could not say who purchased it.
One of the rooms that is absolutely breathtaking is definitely the family room, which is directly at the entrance and which lets the light penetrate thanks to the abundant fenestration.
The backyard of the house, which is included in the 53,839 square foot lot, is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. There is a large pool, spa, sauna and relaxation areas, all in an intimate setting since the house is close to a beautiful wooded area.
If you were planning to buy a home in Montreal, you might want to do it quickly because next year, you might not even be able to afford it. According to Royal LePage's home price forecast, the median home price in Greater Montreal is set to increase by 8% — to $564,800 — by the end of 2022.
The 8% increase represents the aggregate forecast for home prices in 2022. This factors in both single-family homes and condominiums. Royal LePage forecasts detached single-family homes will see the largest price increase.
Royal LePage forecasts Canada\u2019s aggregate home price will rise 10.5% year-over-year to $859,700 in 2022. \n Canadian home values are expected to rise strongly again next year, however at a slower pace compared to 2021.https://blog.royallepage.ca/royal-lepage-forecasts-double-digit-home-price-growth-in-canada-in-2022/\u00a0\u2026

In the fourth quarter of 2021, the median price of a detached single-family home in the Montreal area was an estimated $595,000. By the last quarter of 2022, it could increase by around 9%, according to the report. This means that the median home price would be $648,600 — a jump of $53,600.
Needless to say, $53,600 could mean a world of difference to Montrealers who are in the market for a new house.
Condos in Montreal, meanwhile, remain slightly more affordable — but not by much, to be honest. In Q4 2021, Royal LePage estimated that the median price of a condo in the Montreal area was $420,000. But they're also set to see a marked price increase if the forecasts come to pass.
Royal LePage sees the median price of a Montreal condo increasing by $27,300, or 6.5%, to $447,300.
If you think that's bad, the rest of Canada has it much worse. In Toronto, for instance, the median condo price is forecasted to increase by 12% — one of the highest increases in the country.

The 28-year-old man is accused of events occurring between November 2019 and September 2020, from the first trimester of Rioux's pregnancy until a few months after the birth of her child.
McCormick was present at the hearing via video conference. During the hearing, a summary of facts detailed the several violent incidents for which he was charged.
The accused admitted to having strangled Rioux by pinning her against the wall and lifting her off the ground while she had her child in her arms.
McCormick further admitted to threatening Rioux's life by saying, "I'm going to kill you," "I'm going to burn you alive," and "I'm going to shoot you in the head." He also said he called Rioux a "bad mother" and "crazy."
Finally, McCormick pleaded guilty to mischief involving property valued at less than $5,000, which, according to Narcity, included a wall, a lamp and a cellphone.
The accused made his guilty plea following an agreement between the two parties. The Crown, therefore, agreed to drop the charges on the other four counts he was facing of forcible confinement, harassment, assault with a weapon or causing bodily harm, and harassing communications.
The only things missing from this Quebec mansion are a snake pit and a helipad. The house, which sits on an estate overlooking the Lac des Deux-Montagnes in Oka, is fit for a Bond villain with a grand, glossy interior, valley vistas and an outdoor entertainment area complete with an infinity pool that juts out into the lake itself.
Other notable features include a game room, home cinema and wine cellar.
In the first-floor living area, 14-foot ceilings and immense windows capture the wide lakeside views while rich wood ceilings, earthy accents and a fireside conversation pit create intimacy in an otherwise cavernous lair.
The living and dining rooms are joined by double-sided fireplaces and, outside, a veranda that runs the length of the lakefront façade.
Quebec influencer and entrepreneur Élisabeth Rioux shared a peek of her family's new home in Quebec in a December 7 YouTube video.
For those who don't know, Rioux and her partner, Christo, have been searching for a house in Quebec after nixing — or at least postponing — plans to move full-time to Costa Rica.
Until now, she has offered glimpses of her search for a new property with her followers. Narcity and MTL Blog confirmed that she visited this $1.2 million modern cottage-style house in Saint-Sauveur after a photo of a sitting room appeared in her Instagram story.
But, according to Narcity Québec, Rioux and Christo ultimately settled on a home in Blainville, five minutes from a warehouse used by Hoaka, Rioux's swimwear company. She announced in the December 7 video that they had closed on the property and were in the process of conducting inspections.
