JOHNNY BENCH SELLS SAWFISH BAY COLONY HOME IN JUPITER
October 13, 2016 | Richard Sites
Johnny Bench, National Baseball Hall of Fame member who ESPN called “the greatest catcher in baseball history” has put his estate home in Sawfish Bay Colony on the market.
This is a rare opportunity to own one of just 7 luxury, waterfront estates in the heart of Jupiter.
The house has 7,282 feet under air with 5 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths. Total footage is 9,664. At a listing price of $3,995,000 it works out to $548 per square foot which is perfectly inline for a home like this.
The 2003 house also has 3 garages and a guest house of 650 feet. The real draw of course is the 100 feet of direct intracoastal frontage with room for a yacht to 80 feet.
The small, gated community of Sawfish Bay Colony does have a modest HOA but there is no clubhouse or amenities. It would be perfect for the person seeking a “no fixed bridges” location with direct ocean access through the Jupiter Inlet just a couple of minutes to the north.
It would also be perfect for the family that does not need or want a golf course community or a busy club scene.
If you have ever considered a home like this, you should pounce on this rare opportunity. Homes like this are seldom available. Contact me directly at 561-762-4073 so I can arrange a personal showing.
