Canadian singer Celine Dion has done quite well for herself and her fans over the years. With hits like "My Heart Will Go On" and "Because You Loved Me" to her name, she has managed to sell over 200 million records, making her the best-selling Canadian artists in history and one of the best-selling artists of all time. Her success, along with that of her late husband, has allowed her to amass a substantial fortune.
With that fortune, she was able to acquire an incredible mansion/water park on Jupiter Island, Florida, and has been trying to sell it for some time now. So – if you are interested, it can be yours, for $45.5 million.
Along with the house, the 5.7-acre property comes with a 500,000-gallon water park. Yes, a water park complete with two interconnecting pools, numerous slides, a lazy river, and a bridge. In case that isn't enough water for you, there is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean.
In case the water park is not to your liking, there is a 415-foot beach ready to fulfill your aquatic desires.
Along with the mansion, the water park, and the beach, the property comes with a pool house, tennis court, tennis house (yes, a tennis house), a beach house, and two four-bedroom guest houses.
In all, there is more than 22,000 square feet of interior space among all of the houses, 17 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, five fireplaces, a home theater, a massage room, a kitchen big enough for an army of chefs and so much more.
With a living room of this size, a big screen television is a must, if people are going to be able to see what is on from the couch.
Celine and her husband purchased the place back in 2005. Three years later, they purchased the vacant lot next door. You know, because the property wasn't big enough.
She was fined for water use in 2008. With a 500,000-gallon water park, that isn't really surprising. To keep from bein hit with a fine again, she had six wells dug on the property.
She first listed the property in August 2013 for $72 million. After not finding a buyer, she dropped it to $62.5 million in April 2014. The fact that she has now dropped it down to $45.5 million speaks to her desire to get rid of the property.
It would not be surprising to see a resort company purchase the home. There are plenty of rooms already and with a few alterations, more could probably be added. Otherwise, it is hard to see someone wanting such a large place. That is unless they have a really big family. Not just kind of big, but a really, really big family.
The electricity bill must be insane.
It hasn't been the best of years for Celine Dion. Her husband lost his battle with cancer in January. Two days later, her brother lost his battle with cancer.
