Celine Dion Selling Florida Water Park Mansion
Although Florida real estate prices have been on a steady climb since 2011, there are still a few Florida home bargains to be had. If you have an extra $62.5 million, you can be the proud owner of Celine Dion's Florida water park mansion. She was originally asking $72 million.
Celine is spending most of her time these days in Las Vegas where she has done five years of sold-out shows at Caesars Palace. With so much time away for show business and her Las Vegas contract extended to 2019, Celine is selling her Jupiter, Florida estate. It comes with a Disney-like water park.
When Celine and her husband-manager, René Angélil, built their Bahamian-style 10,000-square-foot home in 2010 with eight bedrooms on 6 acres and one of the longest private beaches in Florida, they added a water park most people have only seen in public water parks. Perhaps DisneyWorld or Sea World.
Celine's water features include a man-made river that winds through the entire estate, a massive pool with water slides, bridges, gazebos, water slides, and water-gun stations. There is a second swimming pool on the Atlantic side of the house, and a man-made beach in case you need a break from the sand that comes with her 415 feet of private beach on the ocean.
Aside from the water park and the main house, there are five pavilions that serve several functions including a double four-bedroom guest house with eight extra bedrooms, gigantic master closet with electric racks and a revolving shoe carousel, a tennis house with simulated golf range, pool house that has its own kitchen and a beach house with a second floor sleeping loft. But that's not all: there is also a tennis court, basketball court, croquet court, massage room and children play house. Most of the furniture is included in the sale.
Jupiter Island is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the United States. Celine's neighbors include Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, Gary Player and Alan Jackson. She is downsizing - recently selling her 24,000-square-foot Montreal mansion for almost $30 million.
