Phil Mickelson sells compound in Rancho Santa Fe for $5.7 million

Phil Mickelson finds a buyer for Tuscan-style compound in Rancho Santa Fe

Five-time major champion golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy, have sold their compound in Rancho Santa Fe for $5.725 million.

The Tuscan-style estate returned to the market in November at about $6 million with Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson and Associates Estate Brokerage and Linda Sansone of Linda Sansone & Associates attached to the listing. Mickelson, who owns other property in the area, had previously asked as much as $12 million for the home.

Built in 2001, the home features a main residence of about 9,200 square feet, two guesthouses, a pool, a horseshoe pit and a three-hole putting green on five acres inside the Covenant.

Hand-carved stone fireplaces, leaded glass windows and trussed beams are a common theme throughout the single-story home, which has five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Among amenities is a chef’s kitchen, an office/library, an exercise room, a sauna and a safe room.

The master suite, with his and hers dressing rooms and a steam shower, is outfitted with a coffee/juice bar.

French doors open to a space for entertaining with a covered loggia, outdoor kitchen and fireplace, set off by citrus trees, large expanses of lawn and vista views. Elsewhere on the grounds are a pair of guest casitas, a four-car garage and a detached one-car garage.

Mike Mullins of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyers in the sale, which closed Monday.

Mickelson, 44, will make his 2015 debut at the Humana Challenge in La Quinta later this month. He has made more than $81 million on tour for his career.
