MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Editors Note: There are five photos and a video associated with this release.
Sotheby's International Realty Canada and Jones Lang LaSalle announce the joint listing of Kenauk, one of the largest and most remarkable, privately held pieces of land in North America with 70 private lakes and 102 kilometres of breathtaking frontage.
The impressive 65,000-acre parcel of land is located between Ottawa, the nation's capital, and Montreal, a short 50-minute drive from both on the newly open HWY 50 connecting both cities. The quaint village of Montebello, Quebec neighbours this land, and is home to the world-renowned Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, a destination of choice for world leaders for decades, having hosted a G-7 summit, NATO meetings and a North American Leaders Summit.
A protected wilderness reserve, Kenauk boasts an abundance of spectacular fauna and wildlife and a pristine river that winds through the land, flowing for 15 kilometres from Lac Papineau towards the Ottawa River, in addition to the 70 private lakes.
Kenauk is home to a private and secure gated community encompassing 13 luxury chalets and an exclusive marina, and can be traversed by hundreds of kilometers of existing roads. The aim of the seller is for the idyllic, 65,000-acre landmass to be transferred to the next owner as a single territory in its entirety.
"The sale of this property offers an unprecedented opportunity to secure a piece of Canada's history, with roots deeply entrenched in the history of the region and of the nation," says Herbert Ratsch, listing agent with Sotheby's International Realty Canada. "The area has attracted some of the world's most prominent leaders and political figures, providing further appeal for international visionaries looking to own a historic piece of land."
The property is listed at $81,250,000 CDN ($1,250 CDN per acre).
