Celine Dion found a buyer for her oceanfront Florida mansion equipped with a water park in the backyard but the official sale price wasn’t anything close to the $38.5 million that was initially reported.

After first hitting the market for a whopping $72 million in August 2013, the 20,000-square-foot estate in Jupiter Island actually sold for $28 million, per the Palm Beach Daily News, which was less than half of the original ask from nearly four years ago.

The mammoth Palm Beach County property sits on over five acres and was built in 2010 by Dion and her husband, René Angélil, who passed away last year.

The Bahamian-inspired home has 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a guest house, golf simulator, and over 400 feet of ocean frontage, but its most interesting feature has to be the water park, which entails a lazy river, water cannons, slides, and a tree house.

The report also states the new buyer, who was not disclosed, will utilize the property as “a vacation home” because of course.

Dion purchased the property for $7 million in 2008.
