JUPITER ISLAND — Celine Dion was finally able to sell her 5.5 acre Jupiter Island estate, but not before slashing her initial asking price of $72.5 million nearly in half to $38.5 million.
The 13-bedroom, 14-bathroom sprawling 11,000-square-foot mansion where Dion lived with her husband Rene Angelil who died of cancer last year and their three kids, has been purchased by an American buyer, whose identity is being kept under wraps, according to DailyMail.com.
However, the selling agent said the buyer is planning to use the estate as vacation home.
Dion, 48, and Angelil built the oceanfront mansion in 2010 and only lived in it a few years before Angelil was diagnosed with cancer and the house was put on the market.
The house is thoroughly modern, chic and still feels like a beach house.
The estate, clearly inspired by the Bahamas, is comprised of five pavilions: the main house, two four-bedroom guest-homes, a tennis house (with a simulate golf range), and a pool house.
And then there’s the pool, or aquatic center, if you will, with a 500,000 gallon water park with a lazy river. The house seems to have everything anyone could ever want.
Still, the house at 215 South Beach Road struggled to find a buyer.
It was originally listed at $75.5 million, but over the past four years the price has been whittled away. She slashed the final $7 million off price tag in January.
This is the second property she’s unloaded in Florida this year. In March, she sold servants’ quarters she secretly owned in Hobe Sound.
She’s currently living full-time in Las Vegas where she performs at Caesar’s Palace.
