NHL legend Mario Lemieux is selling his unbelievable castle in Quebec for $16.8 million and hard to believe, but that actually seems like a bargain once you get a good look at this place. (And what’s up with famous athletes and castles?)
Lemieux, who played 17 seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame immediately after his first retirement in 1997 as they waived the normal three-year waiting period, was arguably the second greatest hockey player of all time. Especially considering that he played much of his career with a spinal disc herniation, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, chronic tendinitis of a hip-flexor muscle, and chronic back pain so severe that other people had to tie his skates.
Now the current owner of the Penguins a post he has held since 1999, Lemieux is looking to sell his insane 50-room, 17,000-square-foot Mont-Tremblant castle for $22,999,066 CAD (about $16.8 million USD). The price ending in 66 is because that was Lemieux’s jersey number.
