He may be traveling the country on his “Songs from St. Somewhere” tour, but that hasn’t stopped Jimmy Buffett from jumping on a real estate opportunity. A few weeks ago the singer purchased a third home in Palm Beach, Florida, for $1.3 million. It is located directly across the street from a home he purchased in 2002 for $802,000. His new home has four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and spans more than 3,100 square feet. It comes with a chef’s kitchen, marble-finished baths, a private patio and balcony.
Rumor has it that he bought the home just to store his surf boards. We can’t confirm one way or another, but it’s certainly not the most expensive home in his real estate portfolio. Buffett owns another home just a few miles down the road, which he picked up for $4.95 million in December 2011. Described as “island contemporary,” the estate exudes a tropical feel, with mahogany-framed glass doors that slide open to create an indoor/outdoor living area. Even though he bought it for nearly five million, it seems like a major downsize compared to the 11,500 square foot estate he sold in 2010 for $18.5 million.
In addition to his Florida homes, Buffett drinks margaritas at his home on the Caribbean island of St. Bart, and on Long Island, where he owns three homes located right next to each other on Actors Colony Rd.
