Celine Dion lists private island estate

Extravagant Titanic warbler Celine Dion has listed her private island estate, located some 15 minutes from Montreal, for $29.3 million.

Located on an 830,000-square-foot private island that's accessible only by a gated bridge (although a helipad could be created to give air access), the 24,000-square-foot home is a French Normandy style castle with six bedrooms and six bathrooms.

There is also a gym, water views, a foyer with inlaid marble floors, a games room, a dungeon-like stone wine cellar with an attached tasting room, and a pool house with its own kitchen.

And the purchase price also includes the singer's massive collection of antique furniture, Persian rugs, linens, china, flatware and art which are being left behind.

Dion and her husband and manager are selling the property because they're spending more time in the U.S. and are looking to purchase a smaller home for when they return to Canada for visits.
