Professional golfer Fred Couples has listed his second home in La Quinta at $4.195 million.
The Spanish-style villa has a courtyard with a fountain. The nearly half-acre site has mountain views, a swimming pool with a spa and a fire pit. Interior features include limestone and wood floors, arched windows, a great room with an oversized stone fireplace, a wine room and two master suites with stone fireplaces and terraces. There are four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms. The approximately 5,200-square-foot house is being sold furnished.
Among community amenities are two fitness centers, a swimming pool and a private golf course designed by Tom Fazio.
Couples, 52, uses the house as a place to relax at the end of the golf season. He joined the PGA Tour in 1982 and the Champions Tour last year. Among his wins are the 1992 Masters Tournament and this year's Senior Players Championship.
He is selling because he plans to build a custom home in the same development. Public records show Couples bought the property in 2009 for $3,047,500.
Janine Stevens of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in La Quinta is the listing agent.
