The former co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the current ambassador to France and Monaco bought a Jupiter estate for $8 million.

The trust of Jamie McCourt purchased a 6,804-square-foot home at 160 Spyglass Lane for $1,175 per square foot, records show. The sellers are Eileen and Mark Epstein.

The Epsteins bought the home for $7.7 million in July 2018, records show.

The home was built in 2018 and has five bedrooms and six and a half baths. The waterfront estate sits on a 21,000-square-foot lot and is in the Admirals Cove community. The house also sits behind a golf course.

Christian Angle with Christian Angle Real Estate represented the seller.

McCourt co-owned Major League Baseball’s L.A. Dodgers with her then-husband Frank McCourt. In 2009, the two became entangled in a nasty divorce, which eventually led to a settlement agreement in 2012 where Jamie McCourt would sell give up her stake in the team.

Prior to co-owning the Dodgers, she was the general counsel of the McCourt Co., the family real estate firm in Boston.

Jupiter is one of the wealthiest towns in Palm Beach County where a number of celebrities have bought large homes.

In May, Serena Williams sold a 2.4-acre vacant lot at 152 Bear’s Club Drive in Jupiter for $6 million to Patrón Spirits CEO Edward Brown and his wife Ashley.

And in late 2017, the founder of NetJets Marc Laukien sold his 9,310-square-foot home at 19307 North Riverside Drive for $5.1 million.
