One More Reason to be a Pro Golfer
PGA Star Justin Leonard Selling Awesome Aspen Home for $15.9M
Professional golfer Justin Leonard is taking a swing at the real estate market, putting his Aspen, CO, home up for sale for $15.9 million.
The 12-time PGA Tour winner had bought the retreat in 2015 for $9 million, which was a discount from its $9.45 million list price.
We’re not sure what spurred the golfer to abandon Aspen, but if he sells his home for anywhere near his asking price, it will be a very nice payday. Bubba and Tracy Eggleston hold the listing.
The 5,000-square-foot home was built on an elevated corner lot in 1994, and “has been remodeled to perfection,” according to the listing.
We can’t disagree. The home is light, bright, and cozy and features white oak flooring throughout. The open layout includes a combined living and dining room. The area centers around an eat-in chef’s kitchen with a large center island. There are five bedrooms and 5.5 baths.
Upstairs, you’ll find the master suite with a fireplace, private deck, and marble bath. There’s also a guest room and an office, which is currently adorned with sports memorabilia and trophies.
On the lower floor, a cozy media room boasts a bar and fireplace. Outdoors, the side yard is newly landscaped and there’s a patio with a fireplace and pizza oven. The driveway is heated, which means there will be no arguments about who has to shovel the snow.
The home is near Triangle Park, the Aspen music festival tent, and the Aspen Ideas festival, as well as plenty of hiking and skiing options.
Born in Dallas, the 45-year-old Leonard attended the University of Texas and joined the PGA Tour right out of college. Along with his many wins on the PGA Tour, he has one major title to his name—the 1997 British Open.
