In the market for a new house? Got a spare couple of million dollars to spend? Then you might be interested in Retief Goosen’s gaff.
The two-time US Open champion’s Orlando mansion is on the market – and it’s rather nice.
Sitting on a half-acre portion of land along the back nine of the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club, the house has nearly 6,200sq/ft of living space and includes a formal living room, dining room, chef’s kitchen, five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
There is also a covered patio with an open-air pool and spa, as well as a three-car garage and golf cart storage, whilst views over the golf course and lake come as standard. Check out the pictures below (courtesy of latimes.com)
Goosen, who has been touted in some quarters for a place in the World Golf Hall of Fame, paid $1.1m for the property in 2001 and originally put it up for sale in 2012 with an asking price of $2.6m. However, he has been forced to reduce it to $2m.
Goosen, 44, is the latest high-profile golfer to put his house on the market recently. Six-time major winner Lee Trevino listed his North Dallas home at the beginning of the month, inviting offers in the region of $13m, whilst Geoff Ogilvy sold his California tennis court estate for over $6m.
Former Masters champion Trevor Immelman is another high-profile golfer to have planted a ‘For Sale’ sign in his lawn. The South African’s five-bedroom Orlando mansion is on the market for just under $2m.
