Jeff Gordon's Incredible Former Florida Mansion Sells For $36 Million

By on March 29, 2022 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

An expansive estate in Highland Beach, Florida that once belonged to NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon after he purchased it relatively early in his meteoric career just sold for $36 million, a new record for the Boca Raton area, per a report in Creative Loafing Tampa Bay. The mansion was built in 1996 and Gordon was its very first owner, having purchased it for the relatively paltry sum of $2.4 million.

Interestingly, its most recent former owner, and the person who reportedly sold it for this record-breaking sum to an unnamed buyer, also has a connection to the automotive world: the late Daniel Hamister, who was known as a collector of rare cars.

That probably isn't just a coincidence. This property makes sense for a car buff, since among its many amenities you'll find a six-bay "auto museum," for displaying a few prized pieces of your collection. Here's more, from the estate's official listing:

"An impressive motor plaza introduces this stately ocean mansion with butterfly staircase, impeccably finished public rooms, full wing primary suite, and six ultra-luxe en-suite guest bedrooms, media/screening room and executive oceanfront office. New club room wing with 6 bay auto museum. The lower level features a full wellness center with gym, massage room with full bath and an additional 7+ Bay garage for the car connoisseur. Iconic grand loggia for large scale-gatherings, resort-style pool, and private beach walk to an observation deck on the sand."

The identity of the home's buyer isn't yet known, so we don't know if they have a car collection to really make use of that auto museum yet – but hopefully a feature like that won't go to waste.
