Venus Williams’s Real Estate

Venus Williams has picked up, much larger, the house only a few miles north in the Sunshine State, a 7,100 square-footer in Hobe Sound, about two months after co-listing the Palm Beach-area property she has owned with her sister for about twenty years. The sisters’ home is reportedly on the market for $2.7 million. Williams paid $9.6 million for her new home.

The house was built in 1962 and has a Caribbean-inspired style that evokes long, lazy summer days. The estate’s living style is summed up by a barn wood patio and pool area, a cabana with a wet bar and a summer kitchen, and a winding boardwalk through mangroves leading to the beach. The interiors of the main house has the same laid-back vibe, with pale wood, off-white paint, tongue-and-groove, ceiling fans, vaulted ceilings, and an open concept combining to create a rather comfortable look.

The Jupiter Island property is also very large: the lot is approximately 1.5 acres in size. The two detached guest houses on the property also contribute to the sale of the property.
