Apparently this is a popular time of the year to sell your home if you're a professional golfer. Just a couple of weeks ago, golfing legend Phil Mickelson listed his $6 million Rancho Santa Fe mansion. Now, fellow champion Hunter Mahan has put his five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom Coto de Caza home up for sale with the much smaller price tag of $1,799,000.
Sitting on the 12th hole of the south course at the prestigious Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club, Mahan's 4,800-square-foot home was built in 1999 on just over a quarter-acre of prime real estate. A favorite for its great locale, this home boasts views of the course, water, and nearby mountains. Featuring a Tuscan-inspired design, the home's exterior employs plenty of stone, terra cotta, and Old World designs.
Despite all of the curb appeal that this home has, there was still plenty of style and creativity left when it came to designing the interior. From dark hardwood cabinetry to spacious, oversized windows, there's plenty of luxury spread throughout each room. In the sitting room you find a beautiful built-in antique-looking bookshelf, complete with rolling ladder, as well as a spacious granite-countered wet bar that sits in front of large glass panes offering scenic views that overlook the surrounding countryside.
Outside, the home's rear deck offers the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing day at home. From the comfortable outdoor seating area to the refreshing infinity edge pool, there is plenty of space to take a load off while soaking in the adjacent water and fairway scenery. The home also comes with plenty of parking for your cars – and your golf carts – thanks to its sizeable four-vehicle attached garage.
At just 32 years old, professional Hunter Mahan has made more than a name for himself in the golf world. After winning his first state golfing championship while in high school, Mahan went on to join the team at the University of Southern California, where he was awarded the title of Pacific-10 Conference Freshman of the Year. The young up-and-comer went pro in 2003, when he joined the PGA Tour. Since then, Mahan has won nine professional events, including six PGA tournaments and three World Golf Championships. Over the span of his career, Hunter Mahan has already earned more than $29 million in tournament prize money.
