TORONTO — Former prime minister Brian Mulroney and his wife Mila have slashed the asking price of their Montreal mansion by more than $2 million.
The home in the tony Westmount neighbourhood has been on the market since September 2013.
Originally listed at $7.95 million, it is now up for grabs for only $5.8 million.
The home, built in 1950, is described as “discreetly tucked away into an intimate oasis” on a “tranquil crescent.” It has five bedrooms on the second level, including a master bedroom that boasts an ensuite bathroom and his-and-her walk-in closets.
The basement features a playroom, laundry room, nanny’s room, bathroom and exercise room.
The 68-metre by 41-metre lot includes a large stone patio with swimming pool.
The sale price includes kitchen and laundry appliances as well as a basement wine fridge, walk-in commercial fridge and “safety box.”
Tax records show the property, registered to Mila Pivnički Mulroney, was purchased for $1.675 million in 1993 — the year Brian Mulroney’s run as prime minister ended.
It’s not known why the Mulroneys decided to sell. Brian, 75, and Mila, 61, also have a home in Palm Beach, Florida.
The youngest of the couple’s four children — Nicholas — will be 30 in September.
“This home is for a buyer who seeks an elegant home and privacy,” reads the description.
Marie-Yvonne Paint of Royal Lepage Heritage has the listing.
