Sold: Celine Dion’s Jupiter Island home for $38.5 million

After being placed on the market almost four years ago, the Jupiter Island “waterpark home” built by Celine Dion and her husband, Renee Angelil, has just sold.

Celine and Renee purchased the 5-acre lot in 2008 for $7 million and began building the Bahamian-inspired mansion in 2010. Within its 20,000 square feet there are 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and a golf simulator. Multiple expansive glass walls allow for wide views of the waterfront property that includes tennis courts and a guesthouse.

The property earned its waterpark home moniker thanks to a lavish pool system that requires 500,000 gallons of water and includes two swimming pools, two water slides, a lazy river, water cannons and a tree house.

After starting her Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas and with Renee’s illness in 2013, it was not possible for Celine to get much use out of the home.

The home was initially introduced at $72 million in 2013 and went through several price cuts from $72 million to $62.5 million to $45.5 million before its final sale price of $38.5 million. Sotheby’s International in Florida and Canada arranged the sale and though the new owners have not yet been identified, it is believed that they will be using the property as a vacation home.
