Celine Dion has her new Florida home for sale. Yes, that infamous house with the waterpark and all!
Celine Dion’s house, that took many years to be build, is now for sale for $72.5 Million! According to Forbes, in 2005 Celine Dion and her husband/manager René Angélil paid $12,525,000 for a home at 215 S. Beach Road in the exclusive Floridian inlet of Jupiter Island. They proceeded to tear down a 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 8,579 square foot home to build this massive Bahamian-inspired estate, which was completed in 2010.
This five and a half acre property with over 415 linear feet on the Atlantic Ocean is being sold turn-key with almost all its contents, which means, you’ll get all that you see here.
The property is comprised of the main residence and 5 individual pavilions including a double 4 bedroom guest house (for a total of 8 bedrooms); a tennis house with simulated golf range leading to the tennis court; a pool house with built-in grill and separate kitchen; and a cozy beach house with second floor sleeping loft and massage room. Not enough? Celine Dion’s house also have THREE separate pools, one at the rear by the ocean, and two connecting pools at the front with a huge and controversial water park.

Celine Dion’s infamous water park was causing some controversy with her multimillionaire neighbors. According to Hooked on Houses, “the community was upset that her backyard waterpark used so much of the fresh water supply on the island, which led to a drought and water restrictions in the area.”
Celine and her husband were “fined for the massive use of water and in an attempt to appease her neighbors, had six wells constructed on the property to store enough water to keep the pipes pumping the 6.5 million gallons needed for the park each year.”
The main residence is an open-concept that takes full advantage of the ocean views. The main level features a formal living room, a large kitchen, family room and dining room, a ground floor bedroom suite with huge walk-in closet, bathroom and screened-in porch, a media room and a separate guest wing.
Kitchen & Eating Area
The kitchen is huge and has two areas. The one you see in this picture and another working area behind the cabinets — see photo bellow.
This is the other part of the kitchen… I haven’t seen anything like it before.
Kitchen & Family Room
The main rooms have incredible ocean views!
The family room is beautifully designed, but the “all white” approach is not very practical when having kids… Spaghetti should be forbidden in this house! 🙂
Celine Dion’s Family
Celine and her family relaxing in her family room. I always got the impression she’s a very smart and sweet woman. Not to mention, talented!
The second floor features two children’s bedrooms with their own ensuite bathrooms, children’s den and a spectacular master bedroom. The master suite has a wrap-around terrace overlooking the ocean and two separate decks, one with outdoor fireplace, the other with hot tub. As expected in a diva’s home, Dion’s house has a fabulous dressing room with tons of built-ins, a gorgeous ensuite bathroom and every woman’s dream: an enormous walk-in closet with separate fully-automated clothes and shoe racks.
Black & White
The main house comes with “almost all of its content,” the listing reads. Dion, however, gets to keep her clothes and mementos.
This bathroom is amazing! I love the tub, the mirrored vanity, everything! It’s elegant and feminine.
An automatic closet? Really?! Yes, please! Oh, Celine… you’re a lucky girl! This is every girls’ dream!
This bedroom is masculine, contemporary and sexy… Very 007! 🙂
I love the ceiling and bed.
Pool & Poolhouse

The poolhouse is relaxed and neutral.
An adorable place to daydream…
Celine Dion’s Waterpark
The home was designed by Dion and husband/manager René Angélil and took more than two years to complete.
Celine Dion’s home has a full basement, providing additional storage for cars as well as rooms specifically designed for the kids.
Isn’t this place spectacular?
Yes, this backyard is a little over the top, but who wouldn’t want to spend some time here?!
Celine Dion Twins
According to the realtor, the house was really built for her family before the twins came along, so it’s not working as well as planned.
Do you think the water park has anything to do with it? As a mother of small children, I would be terrified with it! This water park basically surrounds the property.
Here, Celine with her two precious little ones… they’re two years old now. 🙂
“It really is a true water park,” listing co-agent Joseph Montanaro of Sotheby’s International Realty Quebec told Zillow. “It has slides and a lazy river at the bottom of it. It has a foot bridge at the bottom of it where kids can play. Being the person that she is, it’s hard for her to get out of the house with the kids, so she created this for her and her family.”
Serene and private… This is paradise!
Dion performs regularly at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, and her continual work there led her to list the Jupiter Island home, as she no longer spends as much time there.

Ok, so we just saw a house that, even if I win the lottery I know I wouldn’t buy it, not because I don’t like it, but because I think that would be totally impractical for me and my family, not to mention the pricey maintenance. But this got me thinking… how far we go to give the best we can to our family…
I see this house and I can imagine how much Celine, who is a person just like you and I, dreamed of having her whole family there to enjoy the beautiful water park, the beach, that lifestyle she can offer.
Now, here we are, also giving the best we can to our kids, making of our home a beautiful and safe home, creating spaces where everyone can feel comfortable and have a good time.
My point is, no matter how much we have, we’re all trying to create a place where we can feel at peace, simply happy.
Life is beyond things we own, but memories are created often in places we share love.
I hope you’re always able to make the best of what you have in life. Whatever we have becomes even more precious when truly loved.
