Golf icon Greg Norman has shared a glimpse into his oceanfront Jupiter Island home on Florida's palm-tree kissed Treasure Coast. The 8-acre private estate is surrounded by water that stretches from the Intracoastal Waterway to the sun-glazed beaches of the Atlantic. But, while the coastal setting blesses the home's exterior, the interiors are no less impressive.

Designed by Greg's interior designer wife, Kirsten Norman, the house draws inspiration from luxury yacht interiors, which pays homage to Florida's shores throughout the property through its distinctive nautical light fixtures, dark wood features, and stylish shell accessories.

Gregory John Norman, who is best known as Greg, has now retired as a professional golfer. The Australian-native spent 331 weeks as the world's Number 1 Official World Golf Rankings ranked golfer throughout the 1980s and 1990s and has won 89 tournaments, including The Open in 1986 and 1993 and 20 PGA Tour tournaments.
He is now the chairman and CEO of the Greg Norman Company and has business in companies in interior design and real estate, among other design and sports industries.

The globally recognized figure and his wife curated their home to reflect their passion for travel and memories of their favorite trips throughout their interiors. This theme is mirrored throughout the chic open-plan wooden kitchen and art-filled living and dining area. Other notable rooms include the bathrooms, exclusively fitted with Drummonds' bathroom ware, including large free-standing tubs and shower cubicle.
The bathrooms were purposefully designed to reflect boutique hotels, combined with elegant English design, as a subtle reminder of the couple's years living in London.
Kirsten shares how she chose Drummonds' fittings after searching for something that 'you don't see too often.' She adds how she was drawn to the products because they are 'very distinctive and unique.'

Alongside the main home, the estate contains seven smaller buildings, a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a lush garden facing the ocean. We also have no doubt that there is a golf course somewhere in the very close vicinity of this sporting legend's home.
