Iconic singer Celine Dion’s Jupiter, Florida mansion just sold for $38.5 million. The new owners aren’t listed yet. And it’s no wonder. Closing a deal on this house is like winning the lottery, and lucky ticket holders often don’t want to have their names released. If you had just nabbed a celebrity’s lavish estate, you’d probably want to remain anonymous as long as possible too.
The best way to describe this 20,000-square-foot, Bahamian-themed home is a huge resort and waterpark, with the Atlantic as a backdrop. Situated on a 5-acre lot, with 400 feet of white sandy beach, the mansion seems to stretch on forever. This incredibly large home has…drum roll, please…13 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
These bedrooms are huge, with breathtaking views of the water and lush grounds. The primary bath is enormous and has a free-standing tub in the middle of the room. You’ll find light hardwood floors throughout, and there are plenty of windows and glass walls to invite in as much natural light as possible. From many of the rooms, you can step out onto a deck and take in the vast ocean.
Upon entering, the first thing you’ll see is a sizable foyer with built-in cabinets. This luxurious home features not one, but two living rooms. One has a fireplace and shares an open floor plan with a kitchen/breakfast bar, with low countertops and cushioned seating.
The other looks more like a conventional living room, with plenty of space for sofas and a large flat-screen TV. The home’s second kitchen comes with two small islands, stainless steel appliances, and a cozy dining area. There is also a separate dining room that looks out on the swimming pools.
And now for the best part, the one you’ve been waiting for: the waterpark. This aquatic paradise requires 500,000 gallons of H2O to operate and includes two swimming pools, a lazy river, two water slides, a treehouse, and water cannons. The waterpark is surrounded by all kinds of outdoor seating, ideal for lounging around the pools.
If you get a little chilly in the water, no worries. A firepit that appears to jut out into one of the swimming pools.is a comfortable spot for warming up. The glow of the fire looks especially vivid and inviting against the pristine blue pools. Just beyond the waterpark, and equally vibrant in color, the sea stretches to the horizon, making the property seem even more expansive.
When it comes to outdoor amenities, there’s more. Celine Dion’s sprawling estate also boasts a tennis court, a golf simulator, and a two-story guest house. The main house and guest house are surrounded by palm trees.
