The Titanic singer’s Jupiter Island home in Florida comes complete with its own extravagant water park that she built for her twin sons ('cos obviously she's WAY too famous to go out in public)
Poor old Jack! Even now, more than 15 years later, the final moments of Jack and Rose’s doomed love affair aboard the Titanic in the eponymous film bring a big salty tear to my eye (I mean, seriously, wasn’t there enough room for two on the raft, hmmm Rose?).
But who knew that Canadian warbler Celene Dion was so sentimental about the song that catapulted her into the record books?
The Because You Loved Me and My Heart Will Go On singer has just put her spacious Jupiter Island pad on the market for £46.5m, and not only does it come with more than 400 feet of prime ocean frontage, it has its very own water theme park.
Word is that the capricious nature of fame has made it difficult for Ms Dion and her manager/husband Rene Angelil to take their twin boys out to enjoy theme parks like the rest of us. They’re just, like, WAAAY too famous.
So naturally, being a multi-millionaire mega star, Celine built a private water park in the grounds of her 5.7 acre Florida estate for their exclusive use. It’s certainly one way of beating the queues.
The impressive five-bedroom Bahamian-style home was built in 2010 and languishes in one of the US’s most affluent neighbourhoods – the new owner will count Tiger Woods and Kid Rock among their well-heeled neighbours.
As well as all the usual mod-cons and luxuries – not to mention almost 10,000 sq ft in the main house – the estate boasts an eight-bedroom guest house (great for keeping those pesky family members at arm’s length), a pool house, tennis courts and a simulated golf range.
‘It really is a true water park,’ listing agent Joseph Montanaro of Sotheby’s International Realty Quebec, who shares the listing with Cristina Condon of Sotheby’s International Realty in Palm Beach, told Zillow.
‘It has slides and a lazy river at the bottom of it. It has a foot
bridge where kids can play. Being the person that
she is, it’s hard for Celine to get out of the house with the kids, so she
created this for her and her family.’
Unfortunately for the Dion-Angelil progeny, Celine’s tenure as a regular at Caesar’s Palace until 2019 means that the family gets to spend little time at the Florida bolt-hole.
At least she’ll always have Titanic…
