All I want for Christmas is a beach home in Florida. Seems I’m not alone. Elin Nordegren Woods is also on the lookout, but she has a slightly higher budget than I do — about $4,000,000. And she is looking, I hear, on Jupiter Island, a sleepy little quiet island with 516 condos and only 18 buildings. And guess who lives there, too? (Like 20 minutes away.) Prices on Jupiter, I’m told, are not as soft as they are in Miami, Naples and God’s Got-Too-Much-Sun-Waiting Room, Fort Meyers. Elin is looking at one of the newer buildings on the island, built in 1998, with just 24 homeowners and a staff that pampers like the Ritz. It’s called the Carlyle.
The Carlyle is really the cream-of-the-crop on the island, sits on the land’s highest point, and sports 270 degree views from each unit. You want terrific sunrises and sunsets? You will have them every day, in every room. To the east are spectacular sunrise views of the Atlantic, to the west are unforgettable sunsets of the Intracoastal, and the north offers views the length of Jupiter Island as far as the eye can see.
Maybe Elin will be able to see as far as Tiger’s new compound?
Elin has seriously toured The Penthouse at The Carlyle, according to sources. The penthouse offers the ultimate in scenic views plus a 3,000 square foot rooftop sky patio, which is just unbelievably fabulous for entertaining.
Besides 4000 living square feet of stunning upgrades such as floating limestone floors and David Aultz (Palm Springs contractor) spherical and triangular ceilings, views, and even includes a 3-car garage and has its own boat dock and cabana bath available. All included in an asking price of only $3,990,000. (If not, I’d make them throw it in.) Really, not bad for being right on the water. I may want to check out Jupiter Island!
