Australian golfing legend – Greg “The Shark” Norman – is looking to sell his stunning Jupiter Island estate after a lengthy 30-year ownership period; 14 of which were spent on demolishing the joint before undertaking extensive rebuilds.
Dubbed “Tranquility”, the entire compound was first purchased by the Hall of Famer back in 1991 for just $6.4 million. Over a decade later circa 2007, Norman was unsuccessful in offloading the Florida residence for $85 million; hence the subsequent renovation job which aimed to sweeten the deal for prospective buyers.
Tranquility consists of eight houses in total – main house, coach house, pool house, tennis house, boat house, carriage house, and even a separate beach house on same property – spread across 8.31 acres. The main house offers 10 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 5,000-square foot basement, as well as direct access to the ocean. Reports indicate the dock is suitable for a 150-foot yacht.
In terms of the more spectacular features, you’ll find a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen + wet bar, 1,900-bottle wine cellar, two main pools, spa, fitness centre, US Open regulation-size tennis court, home theatre; and just because it gets tiring wandering such an expansive place as this, there’s a lift for good measure. While the author of this article is certainly no expert, it’s worth mentioning the decor is also pretty on point (take particular note of the Hollywood-tier shower next to the tennis court below).
“There is no question that Tranquillity is an exceptional property,” says Norman.
“Its space, privacy, permanent vacation feel, and the exclusivity of Jupiter Island make it difficult to replace or replicate.”
“[My wife] Kiki and I have numerous beautiful memories in this amazing Jupiter Island home and will certainly miss it. However, we both feel it is time to move on.”
