Celine Dion's Water Park Mansion

Celine Dion and family are spending most of their time these days in Las Vegas. After five  years of sold-out shows at Caesars Palace, Celine restarts her record-setting performances on June 10th. With so much time away for show business and her Las Vegas contract extended to 2019, Celine recently sold her 24,000-square-foot Montreal mansion for almost $30 million, and also has her Florida home up for sale.

When Celine and her manager-husband, René Angélil, built their beachfront home in 2010 on Jupiter Island, Florida, they outdid themselves with water features most have only seen in public water parks. Nestled on 6 private acres on the Atlantic Ocean in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the United States is their Bahamian-style 10,000-square-foot home with eight bedrooms and 415 feet of private beach.  In addition to the main house, there are five pavilions that serve multiple functions including a double four bedroom guest house (eight extra bedrooms), tennis house with simulated golf range, humongous master closet with electric racks and a revolving shoe carousel, pool house with separate kitchen, beach house with second floor sleeping loft and a massage room. Even more, tennis and basketball courts, childrens play house and croquet court, the home is being sold with most of the furniture included.

But let’s talk water.  Aside from having one of the longest private beaches in Florida as a playground, in the middle of the main house and guest homes is a man-made river, a massive pool that winds around the property with bridges, gazebos, water slides, water-gun stations ... Even a man-made beach for sunning if you weary of the one that goes with the ocean. There is also another pool on the ocean side of the house.

Celine Dion and husband, Rene, are selling their Jupiter, Florida beach estate and personal water park.  Originally priced at $72 million, now listed at $62.5 million.

SoHo Broadway Loft

This stylish loft is in the SoHo Cast Iron Historic District and is an original attic loft in a cast iron, six-story 1884 industrial structure.  Totally gutted and redesigned by loft and gallery architect Todd Ernst, today it is a study in sleek sophistication.  An unusual stand-out design feature is how the velvet drapes are configured to move at the touch of a button to enclose and define individual rooms or open to a wide-open floor plan.  All systems are on Crestar such as temperature, lighting, music, video, shades as well as the room-defining drapes.  Another unusual and rather dazzling feature is a mezzanine that is reached by a transparent glass bridge and staircase.  Living and dining spaces, a private keyed elevator, two bedrooms and three baths are included in the 4,000-square-foot space.  The home’s sixteen-foot ceilings are perfect for displaying large works of art.

In the middle of SoHo, this cutting edge loft is in walking distance to all the galleries, shops and restaurants that make this one of New York’s most coveted neighborhoods.  Priced at $6.5 million.
