JUPITER — Serena Williams, tennis champion and business woman extraordinaire, is currently tying up loose ends in Florida before she moves to California following her upcoming wedding to Reddit co-founder and baby daddy Alexis Ohanian, 34.
Williams, 36, has just listed a 2.4-acre lot on a Jupiter golf course community for $6.5 million. This is just a drop in the bucket for the tennis star, who has an estimated net worth of $180 million, though it will probably come in handy when she starts buying odds and ends for her new Beverly Hills home.
The lot is located at 152 Bear’s Club Drive, within the Bear’s Club golf course development, which was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus. The property, purchased by Williams for $4.12 million in early 2014, is said to be “extremely private.”
According to its website, the 270-acre Bear’s Club is situated in “a very natural setting of cypress, pine and oak trees.”
“The clubhouse is elegant, gracious and unusual for Florida. The décor is Tuscan in design with rich, dark woods and stone defining the Mediterranean architecture. The dining rooms are residential in nature and comfortable for entertaining with friends and associates,” the site says.
Williams is not the only celebrity with property at the Bear’s Club. Her neighbors include Michael Jordan and professional golfers Ernie Els and Michelle Wie.
The sale of the property has been listed by Michael Leibowitz of Leibowitz Realty Group.
Williams, who has won seven Wimbledon titles, seven Australian Open titles, six U.S. Open titles and three French Open titles, as well as four Olympic gold medals, recently gave birth to a baby girl named girl named Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., a clear nod to her dad and her mom’s Olympic-sized talent.
This is the tennis star’s third real estate venture in a month. In October, she listed her six-bedroom Bel-Air home for $11.995 million and purchased a Beverly Hills estate for $6.68 million. Her new home has been described on Trulia as a “sprawling 6000-square-foot contemporary Spanish home with peaceful views of Los Angeles and the valley.” The property includes a chef’s kitchen, a yoga and massage room, a wine cellar, a game room and a Baja pool.
Let’s hope she invites us to her housewarming party.
