Real Estate

 

Rickie Fowler's property in Florida was listed for $2.85 million in 2016, according to news reports at the time. It was in 2010 that he made the initial investment of $1.6 million to acquire his Jupiter property. The two-story home, which is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in a gated neighborhood, has four bedrooms and 4,600 square feet of living space.

On top of that, the apartment is situated on half an acre of waterfront land and features outdoor facilities such as a swimming pool, an expansive terrace, and a dock with two boat lifts.

There are a total of 123 feet of frontage along the gorgeous Loxahatchee River on this property. Inside the residence, inhabitants may take advantage of full walls made of glass, which provide spectacular views of the surrounding sea. There are additional concrete flooring and a chef's kitchen in the building as well.

Also in 2016, Fowler purchased another estate in Florida, this time for $14 million, which was his second such purchase in the state. It has more than 11,500 square feet of living area, which is much more than its former residence.

Even though the six-bedroom house is large, there are plenty more reasons why Rickie must have been overjoyed with this real estate transaction. The outside of the property, which includes a practice putting green and a magnolia-lined driveway going up to the home, is what makes it stand out from the crowd. In addition to having water frontage and a private pier, this latest acquisition had many characteristics of his former property.
