Sean Hummell, Private Office Advisor and Real Estate Broker at Engel & Völkers Tremblant, has a clear message for discerning luxury home buyers and real estate investors; Mont-Tremblant may possibly be the best-kept secret in North America’s growing recreational property market.
The numbers would certainly seem to substantiate this claim; $2B Resort investment to date, Ranked SKI Magazine’s #1 Ski Resort in Eastern North America for 20 years straight, an International Airport with FBO Services for Private Jets a mere 30 minutes from the heart of the resort and a healthy dose of “joie de vivre” that has enchanted locals and visitors alike for almost 100 years.
Located 90 minutes north of Montreal, Mont-Tremblant’s charm is, in large part, derived from its unmatched blend of European heritage and desire to provide North America’s premier year round recreational experience. It helps, of course, that the region is blessed with outstanding natural beauty that presents a blank canvas for a diverse range of luxury real estate opportunities. Flying into Mont-Tremblant International Airport (IATA: YTM) reveals the true splendor and grandeur of this place. This is a land of mountains, forests and lakes unlike any other in North America and is the basis for the “come for the winter, stay for the summer” philosophy that, without fail, captures the imagination of first-time visitors.
A true sense of being an all-season destination is what sets Mont-Tremblant apart from its North American resort competitors, offering summertime golfing on PGA-quality courses, swimming, boating, fishing or waterskiing – all from the convenience of your own dock - followed by world-class fine-dining on a lakefront terrace.
Once winter arrives, you can hit first tracks on one of the Resort’s 4 ski areas, whilst snowshoeing, ski-touring, ice skating and dogsledding are available on your doorstep. Wrap up your day at one of the award-winning apres-ski venues, before a well-earned soak in your own private hot tub. If that isn’t enough, why not explore the extensive hiking trails in the adjacent National Park in the Spring, or mountain bike as the breathtaking Fall colors emerge in all their glory.
As the Resort has evolved to provide a comprehensive 4-season recreational lifestyle so has the accompanying real estate market. In addition to a comprehensive portfolio of “on resort” Ski-In, Ski-Out condominium and luxury townhouse offerings, Hummell points to Lac Tremblant (private estates valued at $40M CAD) and Sommets du Lac Tremblant (private estates valued at $25M CAD) as prime examples of world-class single-family home and private estate ownership or investment opportunities.
Sommets du Lac Tremblant has garnered a well-earned reputation as the most prestigious mountainside address in the region. Nestled on the gentle lower slopes of the mountain, this luxury gated community consists of twenty 3-5 acre estate-sized lots with notarized access to Lac Tremblant that offer commanding views of the lake and is home to a number of the most exclusive properties in Mont-Tremblant.
802 Chemin du Skieurs captures the essence not only of Sommets du Lac but also of the Laurentian mountains themselves.
This six-bedroom, eight-bathroom, private estate features architectural stonework, massive arched beams, and a cedar shingle roof, along with three kitchens, five stone fireplaces, a gym, a sauna and a billiards room. Situated on a 3 acre lot, this spectacular home also boasts a three-car garage, on-site waterfall and private access to Lac Tremblant.
The piece de resistance, however, is the exceptional aquatic pavilion featuring its own kitchen, living room, dining room, BBQ, fireplace, flat-screen TV, pantry and a full bathroom; the perfect place to watch the sunset over Lac Tremblant.
Why consider purchasing, building or investing in Mont-Tremblant? Hummell’s international clients point to the fact that Canada is recognized as a stable geopolitical environment and possesses a robust financial system, along with a benchmark currency, that provides increased purchasing capacity against other key currencies. Property prices also remain advantageous when compared to competitive luxury markets.
Michael Legault, President of Groupe Venise Inc., represents a new category of General Contractor, one that has, through longstanding collaborations with like-minded design & build partners, developed a truly world-class fulfillment ecosystem capable of meeting the expectations of the most discerning UHNW clients.
Groupe Venise – responsible for the successful realisation of Québec’s record $39.9M MLS listing – specialises in the delivery of turn-key luxury homes and is the “go to” outfit for ultra-premium projects. “We strive to create a working environment where our clients see us as partners in the design and build process. The first, and most important, step in our process is to ensure alignment of objectives and project philosophy to create not only a spectacular home, but also an architectural legacy perfectly balanced with Tremblant’s outstanding natural landscape.”
With so many of Tremblant’s UHNW clients residing away from the area, what are the challenges Hummell foresees in terms of client-contractor relationship? “First and foremost, your GC must be comfortable working with Family Offices and Client Reps. In addition, a strong commitment to transparency and project governance is non-negotiable and provides the foundation for the efficient delivery of a luxury home.”
As a long time resident, Hummell has personally witnessed, and welcomes, the growing awareness of what Mont-Tremblant has to offer. By way of example, he cites the overriding sense of space clients experience when they visit potential home sites for the first time. “Compared to places such as Vail and Aspen, which are traditional ‘valley’ landscapes, our resort-adjacent real estate framework mandates large lots, with many developers stipulating a minimum 3-5 acre plot to ensure privacy.”
For Hummell, each gondola ride provides an insight into Tremblant’s rich social fabric; the one thing passengers have in common – irrespective of whether they are a billionaire owner of a lakefront estate or a local ski bum renting a modest off-resort chalet – is that they have been captivated by, and fallen for, its undeniable unique charm.
