Celine Dion's Florida mansion for sale at $72M
The 5-acre property has a 13-bedroom main house, a guest mansion, tennis cottage, pool house -- and plenty more.
Singer Celine Dion is shedding properties in Quebec and Florida to the tune of about $100 million, CNBC's Robert Frank reported on Monday.
Dion recently listed her 13-bedroom house in Jupiter, Fla., for $72 million, according to Frank. The 10,000-square-foot main house stands on a five-acre property that also includes an eight-bedroom guest mansion, a pool house and tennis cottage.
The property has its own private water park with a winding white slide. Its closest neighbors are Kid Rock and Michael Jordan.
"My favorite feature here is the closet which is more like a clothing warehouse with an automated clothing rack and revolving shoe carousel," Frank said in the report.
Dion is also selling a 24,000-square-foot French Normandy-style chateau near Montreal. The house stands on a private island with its own bridge. It was listed for $28.2 million last year. Dion's broker told Frank that she has an accepted offer on the chateau.
With Dion's busy performance schedule -- she's now finishing a series of shows at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas and will return in December -- the two houses have been collecting dust.
The singer has visited the Montreal house only once in the past two years, according to Frank.
"Dion's broker in Quebec tells me that she's simply not using this properties much because she's spending most of her time in Vegas," Frank said. "She recently re-upped her contract there till 2019."
The two houses have maximum security, including guards and heavy camera coverage.

[BRIEFING.COM] A solid November employment report translated into a solid day of gains for the major averages. While there was some talk that the encouraging job growth raised the odds of the Fed announcing a tapering at its December meeting, the message of the markets today was either that it didn't believe there would be a tapering this month or that it doesn't fear a tapering this month.
It was just one day, yet there was ample meaning wrapped up in the connection that the 10-yr ... More
