Olivia Newton-John Lists Florida Estate for $6.2M

Olivia_Newton_John_2012Olivia Newton-John, 64, best known for her role in the 1970s hit movie “Grease,” and her husband, John Easterling, 54, just listed their Jupiter, Florida estate for $6.2 million. The four bedroom, 3.5 bath home was built in 2007 and spans 6,383 square feet. It is located on the Jupiter Inlet Colony, which is on the southernmost tip of Jupiter Island, surrounded by inlets and the Atlantic Ocean. The area has been home to a variety of celebrities, including Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Kid Rock and Celine Dion.

Olivia and John purchased the home in June 2009 for $4.1 million, and spent more than $2 million in renovations. The home has hurricane impact-rated glass windows and doors, which is pretty important given the proximity to the ocean. It has a beachy feel, with custom driftwood cabinets, cypress tongue-and-groove ceilings, coral stone flooring, and lush tropical landscaping. The high-tech and eco-friendly home is systematic… hydromatic… ultramatic..with a Lutron sound, video, shade and lighting system, media room, Jandy® controlled heating, energy-efficient air conditioning, Life Source Water Purification system, and rain water harvesting irrigation system.

The master suite has sitting areas, a bar, gigantic walk-in closets, a built-in pop-up TV, and a spacious deck with a spiral staircase. Outside there’s a European Edge lagoon and spa, a boat dock, and a beach with a picturesque hammock. It is listed by Jo Ann Jacobson, Seawind Realty, LLC.

The surrounding water is perfect for snorkeling, canoeing, and boating…although Olivia doesn’t have the best history with love interests going out on the water. In 2005, shortly after they split, her ex-boyfriend, Patrick McDermott, faked his death by disappearing off of a fishing boat. He was later found in Mexico; many believed he did it to cash in on life insurance for his son. Olivia moved on and married John in 2008 at a secret ceremony at their Malibu, CA home, which they sold later that year for $10.1 million.

What do you think of their Florida abode? Is it love at first sight? You can find additional information at photos on the listing details page.
