Celine Dion's Florida Home Hits Market For $72.5 Million

Celine Dion has put her Florida mansion up for sale.

A listing for the property went up this week on the website of Montreal realtor Joseph Montonaro, offering the famous Quebecois crooner’s 4.5-acre property on Jupiter Island, Florida, for $72.5 million.

The location can’t be beat: Jupiter Island is a wealthy enclave of some 800 people north of the Miami area, and it has one of the highest per-capita incomes of any town in the U.S. Dion’s island neighbours include golf legend Tiger Woods and country singer Alan Jackson.

Dion’s house is more like a compound, actually: The main house features five bedrooms and five ensuite bathrooms, but visitors can stay in an eight-bedroom guest house.

There are four other houses on the property: A tennis house complete with a simulated golf range, a beach house and a pool house next to one of the property’s three pools.

The main house is a 10,000-square-foot whopper that has its own elevator and guest wing. The master bedroom features two terraces — one with a spa, one with a fireplace. And it’s powered through geothermal heating.

Montonaro told Gossip Extra Dion is selling the house because the singer signed a contract to perform in Las Vegas through 2019, so she won’t have the opportunity to spend much time there.

“The house was really built for her family before the twins came along, so it’s not working as well as planned,” Montonaro said. “But Celine plans to have some presence in Florida. She loves it there.”

Dion and her manager husband, René Angélil, built the house in 2010, having bought the land for it piecemeal over the previous five years for a total of $19.5 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. They tore down the existing house on the property to make way for their mansion.

The house is being sold “turnkey,” meaning the new owner gets to keep almost all the contents, including furniture, with the exception of Celine’s personal effects, the listing states.
