Golfer Greg Norman lists grandiose Florida estate for $59.9 million

Australian professional golf legend, Greg Norman, has recently listed his massive Jupiter Island, FL, home for $59.9 million. Aptly named “Tranquility,” this oceanfront estate sports a massive modern residence and plenty of space on a beautiful stretch of Atlantic coast.

Greg Norman first moved to Jupiter in 1991 and has spent much of his time there on the property he is now listing. The home currently being listed is much newer. The original house was built in 1902 and proved too much of a fixer-upper to tempt a buyer. So after several attempts listing the property since 2007, Norman decided to mix things up a bit.

After taking the property off the market again in 2016, Norman and his wife decided to completely tear down the old home and replace it with a massive new home, filled to the brim with every conceivable amenity and luxury that one would expect from a contemporary luxury home.

Divided between the main residence, a pool house, carriage house, boat house and guesthouse, the estate boasts a total of 32,000 square feet of space spread across the 8 acre property. There are 10-bedrooms. The basement of the main house alone takes up 5,000 square feet.

The interior design takes a lot of inspiration from yachts as well as Norman’s native Australia, including finishes of teak and mahogany. The original home on the property from 1902 had a lot of oddities, such as 6′ 2″ doorways and a lack of insulation. By contrast, the Normans’ new home is capacious and totally modern.

With such a big estate, there is lots of room for the usual luxury amenities and then some. Tranquility has two huge wine cellars, a movie theatre, and an entertainment suite. And that’s just in the basement.

Outside, there is a gym, tennis pavilion, and two pools. There is also a dock that can accommodate 150-foot yachts. All of this came in useful, the couple said, during the lockdowns. There is also the natural splendor of the Florida coast and the Atlantic Ocean.

Located near West Palm Beach, Jupiter is a favorite among professional golfers, such as Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson to say nothing of Greg Norman himself.
