Carson Palmer has completed a quick strike in the San Diego County real estate market.
The professional football quarterback listed his Del Mar home for sale in November and in about a week was in escrow, records show. The five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house sold for $5.85 million, or $100,000 shy of the asking price.
Built in 2007, the shake-sided home sits high up on the street and has concrete steps that lead to a wide front porch. The 3,809 square feet of living space includes a vaulted-ceiling living room, a chef’s kitchen, a dining room, five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
There are ocean views from three separate decks. A flagstone patio, brick fireplace and barbecue island, a jacuzzi and citrus trees fill the backyard.
Palmer bought the property a decade ago for $4.75 million.
The 37-year-old football veteran won the Heisman Trophy while attending USC. The three-time Pro Bowl player was selected first overall in the 2003 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He is in his fifth season with the Arizona Cardinals.
