130 Bear’s Club Drive

A mansion in the Bear’s Club residential and golf course community in Jupiter just sold for $11 million, property records show.

The 17,012-square-foot house at 130 Bear’s Club Drive traded for about $646 per square foot. Records show the buyer is Ashford Holdings LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The seller is represented by the wealth management firm Stonehage Fleming, based in London. The seller bought the house for $11.05 million in 2008, when the housing market crashed.

The seven-bedroom, 10-bathroom residence was built by custom-home builder Tuscan Harvey in 2003, according to a previous listing. It features wood floors, three fireplaces, a home theater, recording studio, game room, six-car garage, and a 4,120-square-foot guest home. Outside, the mansion features six covered patios, a tennis court, outdoor kitchen with a barbecue and fireplace, and a pool and spa, according to previous listings.

Residences at the Bear’s Club community, founded by golfer Jack Nicklaus and his wife Barbara, share access to an 18-hole golf course and a 40,000-square-foot clubhouse.

Despite selling for less than its previous sale price, the trade stands out as one of the highest recently at the Bear’s Club. The exclusive community has been home to celebrities like basketball legend Michael Jordan, tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams, and professional golfers Luke Donald, Ernie Els and Michelle Wie.
