Jon Bon Jovi worked quickly as he sold one of his mansions and closed on an even more lavish home only a couple miles away.

The 58-year-old rocker recently finalized the sale on his ocean-view Palm Beach, Florida home for $20 million, after purchasing the property in 2018.

And on the same day, he purchased a new seaside mansion in Palm Beach for $43 million, according to The Real Deal.

Bon Jovi purchased the recently sold house in 2018 for $10 million on one-third of an acre.

But the Livin’ On A Prayer singer immediately bulldozed the mansion and built a new 5,000 square foot home with interior design from Caroline Rafferty that featured five bedrooms, five bathrooms and three powder rooms, according to Dirt.

Jon is believed to be a big fan of the South Florida area and is often seen spending time at the coastal resort with friends, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

Some of his high-profile neighbors include Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart and Howard Stern.

Bon Jovi was able to shave off some of the asking price on his new, larger mansion, which was put on the market in January for $44.9 million.

The home, which was designed by Thomas Kirchhoff and decorated by David Kleinberg, is an impressive 10,232 square feet, featuring seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and five half bathrooms.

Guests or house staff also have access to a one-bedroom suite with an outside entrance for easy access.

In addition to the main house, a special owner’s retreat features two bedrooms, two walk-in closets and a convenient morning bar.

The You Give Love A Bad Name singer may have been attracted to his new home’s library to match his former retreat.

His family will be able to enjoy gourmet meals in the chef’s kitchen, which has marble countertops, and there’s a pleasantly cozy breakfast room to start the day.

The arched dining room features a gorgeous view of the pool, which is perfect for cooling down from the Florida heat.

Like his previous mansion, this new home features an elevator, along with amenities including an exercise room, a wine cellar, an air-conditioned garage and a back-up generator.

In addition to his new Palm Beach home, Bon Jovi owns a nearly $19 million 4.5 bedroom condo in New York City’s West Village and a Hamptons mansion he bought for $7.6 million.

He’s currently in the process of selling his Middletown, New Jersey estate for an undisclosed price that’s estimated to be around $20 million.
