Sotheby's International Realty Canada reports that a home in Senneville on the western tip of Montreal Island is poised to break a record in Quebec.

With a listing price of $19,885,000, it would be the most expensive home ever sold in the province through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), according to Sotheby's. Realtor.com describes the MLS system as a platform that brokers use to create and share listings.

Sotheby's said on December 21 that the sale of the Senneville home was pending.

Plopped atop a six-acre estate running along 400 feet of Lac des Deux Montagnes, the house has five bedrooms, two of which have ensuite bathrooms, and five additional bathrooms.

There are also five fireplaces and a seven(!)-car garage.

Oh, and this long list of amenities: a mirrored "infinity wine cellar," a gym, a sauna, home theatre, a playroom, a double shower and a soaker jacuzzi tub with a view of the lake in the primary ensuite bathroom, and, outside, a two-bedroom guest house, a 10-person hot tub(!!) and a designated helicopter landing site(!!!).

Sotheby's also describes high ceilings and "stunning fenestration," which is a really fun phrase that non-realtors don't use enough.

In a statement, Sotheby's International Realty Quebec Regional Director Daniel Dagenais said that "this unprecedented sale reflects the surge in demand for luxury real estate not only on the Island of Montreal, but across the entire Montreal Census Metropolitan Area since the province's post-pandemic reopening" — which sounds great for those with millions to spend on property.

"Affluent Canadians are maximizing space to enhance their lifestyles given the many changes that were brought on by the pandemic," Sotheby's International Realty Canada President and CEO Don Kottick added.

"Properties that enable the enjoyment of recreational activities and the great outdoors in privacy, while also accommodating family and friends in comfort and with security will remain exceptional, and enduring lifestyle and financial investments."

Good for the rich people.

Montreal's Famous Roller Coaster House Is For Sale & You Can Peek Inside (PHOTOS)

Others know it as the "molar house" — but whatever you call it, you'll want to see the 34-foot indoor pool.

Montreal is home to a number of weird, whacky and wonderful homes but the "roller coaster house" (known to others as the "molar house") is truly iconic. Since the property backs onto Rue Fleet, chances are high that you've driven past it and pointed it out, marvelling at its exterior design. But what does it look like on the inside?

If you've always wondered about the interior, you finally have an opportunity to peek inside. Located on Place Fallbrook in Hampstead, the roller coaster house is currently for sale. This means that — thanks to a real estate listing from Team Ann Malka — we are privy to the photos and features of the unique six-bedroom residence, which is going for an asking price of $4.95 million.

Montreal Homes Prices Are Set To Be Even More Unaffordable In 2022

In the rest of Canada, they'll get even higher, according to a new forecast.

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.

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.

Sorry to bum you out, but that condo you've been eyeing might be getting further and further out of reach. The Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers (QPAREB) released its November report on Montreal-area home prices and — surprise — they're still going up.

The overall median price of a single-family home in the Montreal metro area, for example, has reached $525,000. That's a 21% increase compared to November 2020, according to the QPAREB.
