$10M Bear's Club home perfect for avid art collectors

Want to live just a chip shot away from the greens at the world-renowned Bear's Club in Jupiter? A 17,000-square-foot estate in that neighborhood is on the market, and moving in means more than just fancy new digs.

Neighbors in the community include basketball legend Michael Jordan, tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams and golf pros Luke Donald, Ernie Els, and Michelle Wie.


Custom-built in 2005, the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion, located at 191 Bear's Club Drive, showcases Tuscan-inspired architecture and clean, elegant interior finishes. Hand-selected, imported marble tile runs throughout the estate. The property, which touts unobstructed views of the third and fifth holes of the golf course, is less then two miles away from the beach and a short drive to Worth Avenue in Palm Beach

The gourmet chef's kitchen comes equipped with a butler's pantry, a catering area and a 500-bottle, temperature-controlled wine cabinet.

The formal living room reveals the craftsmanship and creativity the homeowners used when designing the home. Among the details: hand-carved statues bordering the fireplace, a crystal chandelier and custom furnishings and draperies.

At 2,200 square feet, the master suite offers separate sitting areas, a hydrotherapy bath tub overlooking the courtyard and golf course, a steam room/sauna and a grand walk-in closet roughly the size of a small suite.

Rich colors and dark woods fill the library and parlor area. A handcrafted European chandelier provides a stunning center point to the room.

A media room designed to have a zen-like atmosphere sits next to the library, offering an escape to watch movies, TV or just relax. The two areas provide an entertainment space large enough for family and guests.

Outdoor features include multiple loggias with fireplaces, a large summer kitchen, cabana bath and oversized pool and spa.
