Greg Norman finds buyer for his $60M Florida compound

Retired professional golfer Greg Norman and his wife, Kiki, have found a buyer for their massive $60 million South Florida compound only two weeks after it was listed for sale. 

Known as the Great White Shark of pro golf, Norman re-listed the Jupiter Island beach abode after 14 years of reconstruction. 

The estate reportedly sold to the family of billionaire Leslie Wexner — the founder and former CEO of L Brands — according to the Real Deal. But the offer remains contingent. 

The Wexners made the purchase on Feb. 9, the listing shows.

The Normans put their massive 32,000-square-foot property on sale on Jan. 27. The Florida estate was first listed back in 2007 for $65 million before it was rebuilt. 

The properties sit on an 8.31-acre lot and are made up of eight houses in total — the main house, a coach house, a pool house, a tennis house, a boat house, a carriage house and a beach house — plus a 5,000-square-foot basement.

“My wife and I feel it is time to move on after 30 years here,” Norman told the Miami Herald. “COVID-19 and the whole pandemic experience, with social distancing and being isolated from our families — most of whom live overseas — this past year has made us realize how short life truly is and has caused us to re-evaluate how and where we want to spend the rest of our lives.”

Celeb chef Eric Ripert selling his NYC spread for $3.5M

Three-star Michelin chef Eric Ripert and his wife Sandra are dishing their Upper East Side home for $3.49 million — and it comes with a true chef’s kitchen that is formidable!

“Eric designed the open kitchen, and it features an island where everyone gathers and watches while he cooks, especially on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Sandra, a broker at Douglas Elliman, tells Gimme.

The three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom unit is plated across 2,311 square feet on the 25th floor of 515 E. 72nd St. It features a wrap corner balcony and East River views.

The third bedroom has been converted into a meditation room, filled with Buddhas, candles, lucky bamboo and a picture of the Dalai Lama.

“It’s very meaningful for Eric,” Sandra said. “We have one in the Hamptons as well.”

There’s also a light-filled open living/dining room where the couple has held glam dinner parties over the years, and lots of custom storage.

The Riperts bought the residence for $2.85 million in 2010, according to records.

“It was a great place to raise our son, who went to the French Lycée,” Sandra said. “He’s now off to college, and we’re looking for a change.”

The Riperts will stay in the city — and within walking distance of Eric’s famed Midtown restaurant, Le Bernardin — which is slated to reopen on March 17.

“Eric likes to walk to work. It’s his only exercise,” Sandra quipped.

Building amenities include an Olympic-size pool and a basketball court, along with a “yoga sanctuary and outdoor lounge,” a gym, spa and a rock-climbing wall.

The listing brokers are Douglas Elliman’s Patricia Vance and Sandra Ripert.

Will Smith's former fresh Village pad listing for $12.5M

A West Village townhouse that was once home to film star Will Smith is on the market for $12.5 million.

That’s quite a hit, considering the buyer paid $13.82 million for the stately manse at 13 Leroy St. in 2008. (One of the previous owners was tech entrepreneur Andrew Rasiej, the founder and CEO of non profit Civic Hall; founder of Personal Democracy Forum; former chair of the New York Tech Alliance and founder of the Irving Plaza concert venue.)

Smith reportedly paid $60,000 a month for five months in 2004 while working on a film.

The 25-foot wide residence features four bedrooms and five bathrooms. It also comes with a two car garage, an elevator and a floating staircase.

Other details include a chef’s kitchen with a pantry, and a living/dining room area under a skylight and exposed brick — all with 16-foot ceilings and under-floor radiant heating.

There’s also a Zen garden with a “winterized” koi pond underneath the living room wall that runs into the back garden.

The home comes with COVID-coveted features, like a pandemic-friendly home office and a main bedroom suite with a private roof garden.

Other fancy details include a 3,000-bottle, climate-controlled wine cellar and “state-of-the-art security.”

The listing broker is Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group.
