Serena Williams scores buyer for Florida golf-course home


Tennis star Serena Williams has found a buyer for her 2.4-acre property at a swanky golf course in Jupiter, Florida.

The seven-time Wimbledon Grand Slam winner put the tree-covered parcel at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Bear’s Club on the market in November for $6.5 million. Now, the home has gone into contract, according to a change in the listing status this month

The Bear’s Club, which reportedly boasts more than a dozen professional golfers as members, has some celebrity cache, including golf pro Rory McIlroy who bought a home in the community from fellow pro Ernie Els.

Ms Williams purchased the parcel of land from the developers of the golf club in 2013 for $4.125 million, to build a vacation home akin to the sprawling, amenity-rich mansions that dot the community. The pricey piece of land has remained vacant since she bought it and now the tennis champion and new mother is looking to unload.

The plot comes with 1.8 acres of developable land, according to the listing with Michael and Andrew Leibowitz of Leibowitz Realty Group. The celebrity athlete also put her six-bedroom Los Angeles mansion on the market for nearly $12 million at the end of October.

Her golf club parcel is one of at least three properties she has in Palm Beach County. She has two homes in the city of Palm Beach Gardens, the smaller of which she co-owns with her sister, Venus.
