Located at 382 S. Beach Road on the prestigious Jupiter Island in Hobe Sound, the estate is listed for $59.9 million.

One of the original ocean-to-Intracoastal estates on Jupiter Island, the stunning full compound of buildings, situated on a sprawling 8.31-acre lot, was built for entertaining and welcoming visitors.

Featuring transitional Cape Cod/cottage style architecture, the property offers both Intracoastal and ocean access. The main property is located on the Intracoastal, while the Beach House is situated on the Atlantic Ocean. It beckons with the utmost in privacy, as there is a nature conservancy across the Intracoastal.

This quiet and peaceful compound is situated in the ideal location on exclusive Jupiter Island, an incorporated town with its own active police force, first responders, and security.

With 20 years of hospitality design, Kiki Norman found inspiration for the home’s design from the couple’s world travels to places such as St. Barths, the Bahamas, Jamaica and Australia; plus the style of Ralph Lauren. French architect Christian Liaigre was a major influence on the design elements, colors, and finishes, including lacquered teak and high-gloss Sapele mahogany; wire-brushed, custom oak floors; and solid brass Waterworks and Drummonds plumbing fixtures.

The Main House, a completely new structure that the Normans recently built, features two 1,900-bottle wine cellars, entertainment space, bar, catering quarters and a movie theater.

In addition, the Main House offers two basements totaling 5,792 square feet, a highly unique feature in South Florida. Complete with one bathroom and two half-bathrooms, where the theater and wine cellars are located.

The two-story Coach House includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, dining room, sun room, laundry room, and a garage space for six cars.

The Pool House is a new structure which the Normans recently built. It features an open terrace, covered terrace, outdoor kitchen/grill area, pool bath, and outdoor shower; and accompanies the two main pools, of which the pool spa is heated and cooled. The main pool is 14 feet deep and features a diving board. An additional plunge pool and Jacuzzi are ideal for relaxing.

Welcoming with a covered outdoor space, two bathrooms, bar, and indoor and outdoor entertainment space, along with an equipment room, the Tennis House complements the sunken US Open-sized tennis court.

The employee parking lot fits an additional 30 cars.

The elevated Beach House, has a total of 3,287 square feet and is located on the Atlantic Ocean, is a new structure which the Normans recently built. It boasts panoramic water views, as well as two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, and dining and living room.

Kiki Norman has 20 years of hospitality design experience, having previously worked for Hirsch-Bedner Associates designing 5-star hotels around the world, as well as its competitor in Los Angeles. Of German-Filipino descent, she has lived in Southeast Asia, East Asia, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, England, Thailand, and the U.S.; in cities including Hong Kong, Sydney, Zurich, London, New York, Los Angeles and Boston. Her world travels are reflected in her design approach, which is to always keep it appropriate for the location and culture-based.

The Normans were granted a special provision and were able to add 6,792 square feet more floor area than otherwise is allowed. No one else on Jupiter Island can take advantage of increasing floor area square footage above what is normally allowed through this provision.

Quotes:

“The owners of this mesmerizing estate never have to leave,” said Jill Hertzberg of Coldwell Banker Realty’s The Jills Zeder Group. “It offers all of the amenities of a high-end resort: tennis, pool, beach, gym, boating, gourmet kitchen, office ― it’s all here in one place.  ‘Tranquility’ is the perfect name for this home, because that’s the exact feeling that comes over you the second you walk in and take in everything this magnificent compound has to offer.”

“Having grown up on the beach in the tropics of Australia, my search for the perfect property in America allowing me to incorporate all my needs from privacy, security, a dock for my boats, and direct access to the beach and ocean, was fulfilled when I was blessed enough to come across ‘Tranquility’ in 1991,” said Greg Norman. “It is a blend of everything I love in life and about life. The new build of our main house under the passionate and professional eye of my wife Kiki only elevated the entire property to another level.”

“I designed this estate to feel luxurious, but also warm and casual,” said Kiki Norman. “It caters to our ‘barefoot elegance’ lifestyle. My vision was to create a sanctuary ― a place that felt like we are on a permanent holiday; and a gathering place for friends and family. The basis of my design was an open floor plan, maximizing light and coastal views from every aspect.”
