PGA’s Dustin Johnson pays $4.95 million for Florida home with private island
PGA golfer Dustin Johnson, who has made over $5.2 million on tour for the year, has purchased a waterfront home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., for $4.95 million.
Fronting the Intracoastal Waterway, the Mediterranean-style home has a resort-like vibe with three ocean-view balconies, a covered patio and a swimming pool with a waterfall and grotto. A wood-plank walkway runs through the dense forest of a private islet to a wide dock and palapa-topped bar.
Within nearly 8,200 square feet of space is a living room with double-height ceilings, an insulated wine room and a family room with custom wet bar. A master suite with a two walk-in closets is among five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
The house came on the market in June for $5.9 million. The seller was investment manager Courtney Munson, who paid $3.2 million for the house in 2012, according to Gossip Extra.
Danielle Munson of Platinum Properties was the listing agent. Jeremy Browne of Hughes Realty Group represented the buyer.
Johnson, 31, has 11 career wins on the PGA Tour, most recently besting J.B. Holmes by one stroke at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. He is engaged to Paulina Gretzky, daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky.
