Not long after Canadiens star Max Pacioretty was traded to the Vegas Golden Knights last year, the Montreal real estate community prepared for the likely appearance of a very expensive home on the market. Indeed, Mr. Pacioretty and wife Katia put their luxurious Westmount house up for sale with a price tag just shy of $7-million.

The stately stone manor, built in 1935, sold for $6.4-million, one of the highest prices fetched by a single-family home in Westmount last year. The buyers are a young couple with three children. “This house happened to be exactly the right house for them,” broker Liza Kaufman said. “They weren’t interested in engaging with renovation.”

What they got

The Westmount home offers great views of the city.

The home is a luxurious abode, completely renovated two years ago, with stunning views of the city. A glass bridge links the house to a separate two-car garage. There is a fully independent in-law/live-in nanny apartment.

The master bedroom has a custom-designed two-level closet with a spiral staircase. There are six bedrooms and six bathrooms in total. “It’s a combination of old-world charm with all the modern amenities in an up-to-date renovation,” Ms. Kaufman said.

Pacioretty’s hockey memorabilia are not included.

The agent’s take

The listing agent says the $6.4-million sale price was the highest fetched by a single-family home in Westmount last year.

“Normally, a home of this size and uniqueness would take longer to sell,” said Ms. Kaufman. That’s a sign of how robust the market is, she said.
