For the buyer whose ideal home should be next to a lot of water, Celine Dion outdid herself when she built her own water park on the beach in Jupiter, Florida. With at least an acre of swimming pools of all configurations, one can still step down to the beach for a saltwater swim or morning jog or relax on Celine's lazy river ride. Originally priced at $72 million, the oceanfront compound of a 10,000-square-foot main house, 7,000-square-foot finished basement, pool house, tennis court and house, beach and guest houses and water features is now listed at $62.5 million.
For those who lean toward a high level of Miami condo sophistication and penthouse views over Key Biscayne, Pharrell Williams has made his mark with his stunning condo and architectural “wow factor,” roof decks and swimming pool – all available for $10.999 million.
In New England, there's the old guard environment of Old Saybrook, Connecticut, on the banks of Long Island Sound where Katharine Hepburn made her home and where a lucky home buyer can watch the romantic Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse flash at night for $14.8 million. The Hepburn home price is reduced from $28 million.
Although the world is still mourning the loss of comedic genius Robin Williams, his exquisite taste is shown in his Tuscan-inspired winery in the hills above the California Napa Valley. Robin Williams' estate was priced at $35 million, now reduced to $25.9 million.
What better way is there to see into the soul of a celebrity than to see what they have created for themselves? Jane Fonda, the person rather than the actress, is so much better understood when one sees the ranch she designed for herself just outside of Santa Fe.
