A property in Biltierie, Que., for sale for more than $4 million has become the latest Canadian celebrity property to be listed on the Toronto real estate market.
Auction house Christie’s International announced Tuesday that a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home at the estate’s former location on the outskirts of Ottawa has been sold for $2.8 million.
The sale was made public on Christie’s website.
The listing was made to mark the 20th anniversary of the estate.
Christie’s president and chief executive officer Michael J. Schiavello said the property was “an exceptional property” and added that “it was the right place at the right time for this family.”
Schiavelos said that the sale was finalized Tuesday.
“It was a long, hard, and expensive process,” he said in a statement.
“We would like to thank all the buyers and the many individuals who came forward to buy this property.
Schiams said that after the sale, the family plans to invest the proceeds to support the Bibliothèque Nationale and other projects. “
The Bibliography has been so instrumental in supporting the Biddle family, including raising millions for research and education, that we feel like this will go a long way in strengthening the Biddles’ legacy.”

The Biddle estate is a former British family home built in the early 1900s.
The family owned it from 1901 to 1932.
The property, once home to the Bishan Brothers, became a major tourist attraction in Canada.
Its former owners also owned the Royal Canadian Mounted Police station, the Canadian Museum of History and a museum in Ottawa.
The estate was bought by a private group in the 1980s, when the Bids were still the sole owners.
It was later sold to a private buyer for $1.2 million.
The property is owned by the Biddy family and is listed as an Old Canadian home with a Grade II-listed building.
The site is surrounded by Grade II heritage sites, including a large Canadian National Exhibition building.
