Patrick Groulx reveals why he is selling his magnificent house

We learned last week that Patrick Groulx had put his vast and pretty house in Saint-Colomban, in the Laurentians, up for sale. See photos of the sumptuous residence, for which the sum of $1,190,000 was requested, here.

It is to realize an old dream that the comedian had to make the choice to move. Patrick Groulx indeed caressed the ambition to buy a land of his own, and it is in the region of Mont-Laurier and the Hautes-Laurentides that he established his new little corner of paradise.

To be able to do that, and build something on it, I wanted to sell my house. This is a big project that will take several years. We are in a great life transition right now. I can’t even believe I have this, in life! I feel super privileged “, confided to the man who has been dating his girlfriend, Kathleen, for six years, and who is the father of two teenagers, a 16-year-old girl, Raphaëlle, and a 14-year-old boy, Alexis.

Patrick Groulx intends to devote himself, on his new playground, to ” everything you can do on earth “.

Fishing, snowmobiling, motorcycling, walking in the woods, snowshoeing, logging… Me, I’m a woodsman and I’ve been dreaming about that for a long time. We went several times with the children “, he listed.

The decision to settle in a new home, in another city, however, was not easy to take for Patrick and his family.

It was a family choice. We talked about it a lot, because it was a big “move”. We had lived in our house for 16 years, my children were born there, they grew up in this house. It was not an obvious choice, but we do not regret it at all. »

Professionally, Patrick Groulx has voluntarily slowed down in the last four months. He is currently working on developing concepts, one of which is about to materialize. Until then, the second season of his comedy series In my head: the return will arrive on the VRAI platform on February 7th.

Then, the tour of his fourth one man show, Groulx, started in early 2019, having ended in December 2021, he does not plan to launch another show in the short or medium term. ” I decided to give myself a little “break” and think about what I want to do in the next few years, because my head is full of ideas and projects. “, supported the one who claims to have found it difficult to constantly relocate performance dates in the tumult of the pandemic.

We ran into Patrick Groulx earlier this week, at the media premiere of the show Involutionby Maude Landry (read our review here and see our photos of the red carpet here). The artist is a true admirer of Maude, whom he had already trained in his tour project Patrick Groulx and his little fine stepswhich dates back to 2017. Groulx had then taken under his wing comedians who, at the time, were in their infancy, namely Maude Landry, Sam Breton, Guillaume Pineault and Matthieu Pepper.

Right away, I found Maude extraordinary. She had her own style, her particular style, and she has evolved so much over the years! said Patrick, who says he feels great pride when he sees young colleagues take the important step of a first show.

I am very excited for her and proud of her journey. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that putting on a show isn’t easy! »
