It’s no giant boat, but a titanic mansion in southwest Calgary is going up for auction in January — and it’s got some celebrity pedigree.

The seven-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion that actor Leonardo DiCaprio lived in while filming Oscar-winning survival film “The Revenant” is set to go up for auction in January 2021 with the listing price of a cool $8.5 million, according to its listing on Concierge Auctions.

Evidently Leo had a taste for the extravagant when he was in Alberta filming in late 2014. The property features a 25-metre indoor pool, home theatre, basketball court, 1,000 square-foot home gym, and an elevator. So, while he spent his filming days in a bear carcass, DiCaprio’s off-time was likely spent in luxury, dining in a kitchen that includes a “butler pantry,” or retiring to the “master wing” complete with a private study and deep-soak tub for two.

WATCH: Leonardo DiCaprio says he witnessed "climate change first-hand" in Alberta. Story continues below.

The mansion itself spans more than 15,000 square feet and sits on a private two-acre property boasting mountain views, It’s located a 20-minute drive from downtown Calgary, and only 40 minutes from scenic Banff.

And to add to its filming pedigree, the property was also featured on the TV series, “Fargo.”

So, if you have a few million bucks lying around and are looking to start off 2021 on a luxurious foot, the auction opens on Jan. 22, and bidders are expected to be able to put down a $100,000 down payment. The online bidding is open virtually around the world, and closes on Jan. 27.
