"Time to move on": Greg Norman lists incredible Jupiter Island home
Greg Norman has re-listed his Jupiter Island Beach home for a mind-blowing US$59,900,000 ($A77.9 million) after spending over 14 years rebuilding it into the sanctuary it is today.
The Floridian paradise was first listed back in 2007 for $65 million ($A84.5 million) before he and his wife began rebuilding and renovating it.
The property was first purchased by the 65-year-old for $4.9 million ($A6.4 million) in 1991.
The property has since expanded by nearly 6,800 square feet.
The beautiful island includes eight houses in total — the main house, a coach house, a pool house, a tennis house, a boat house, a carriage house and a beach house — along with a 5,000-square-foot basement.
He told the Miami Herald that his real estate “vision was to create a sanctuary.”
The main house has 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, along with beautiful oceanfront views and the utmost privacy.
“My wife and I feel it is time to move on after 30 years here,” Norman told the outlet.
“COVID-19 and the whole pandemic experience, with social distancing and being isolated from our families — most of whom live overseas — this past year has made us realise how short life truly is and has caused us to re-evaluate how and where we want to spend the rest of our lives.”
When talking about the home he said, “Memories here are numerous and endless, and they will be forever etched in our minds.”
The former world no. 1 won 89 professional tournaments in total, including 20 PGA Tour tournaments and the Open Championships in 1986 and 1993.
Norman would go on to make headlines in November when he described the COVID-19 symptoms that “kicked the crap” out of him.
“I am fit and strong and have a high tolerance for pain, but this [is] like nothing I have ever experienced before,” Norman wrote on Instagram at the time.
