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.

Rande Turner of Ranch and Coast Real Estate was the listing agent. Gregory Brown of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties represented the buyer.
