Set upon three private acres, 209 Bear’s Club Drive is a 15,000-square-foot estate within The Bear’s Club – home to not only the signature Jack Nicklaus golf course, but also a 40,000-square-foot clubhouse, 68 estate residences, 17 golf villas, and 14 club cottages. This is the same community as some of the world’s most notable athletes including basketball legend Michael Jordan and pro golfers Michelle Wie and Ernie Els, among others.
Previously listed for $12.5 million, this property will sell at auction without reserve on June 28 through industry leader Concierge Auctions.
“There is simply no other golf club community in the world like The Bear’s Club,” said the seller, Gary Nicklaus. “The quality of life, residents and course are unsurpassed. We chose to work with Concierge Auctions in order to take control of the sales process and deliver the best price possible on our schedule.”
Built to entertain, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom, Mediterranean-style residence is located 1.3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean in what has been reported as the most valuable inland real estate in desirable Palm Beach County.
The property includes an eat-in kitchen with expansive Jerusalem stone counters, an in-house movie/sports theater and an open-concept club room complete with a custom wet bar, multiple sitting areas (including a table for poker and game night) and direct terrace access. Outdoors one can enjoy a grand fireplace, a kitchen with a gas grill and smoker, and a grand rock terrace that makes way to the property’s resort-style pool and spa. The largest backyard in The Bear’s Club, the property is complete with lighted tennis court, an in-ground trampoline and basketball hoop.
