Former U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy, who sold a tennis court estate in Del Mar in August, has continued to shuffle his real estate portfolio, listing his home and an additional parcel in Scottsdale, Ariz., for sale and closing on one nearby for $3.695 million.

His new residence is a 7,700-square-foot traditional on nearly one acre in the Dana Estates area of North Scottsdale. A brick walkway leads up to the two-story home, which sports designer interiors with plank hardwood flooring, rustic wood ceiling treatments, exposed beams and brick fireplaces.

Among features is a generous great room with a restaurant-style wet bar, a 200-bottle wine room and a master retreat with his and her baths and a large walk-in closet. Through telescoping doors, the chef’s kitchen opens onto landscaped grounds containing a large patio, a fire pit and a pool and spa. There’s also a four-car garage.

Robert E. Joffe of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Arizona Properties was the listing agent. Jim E. Marsh of the Marsh Partners represented the buyers in the sale, which closed in late August.


On the selling side, Ogilvy has put his 5,407-square-foot residence in the Silverleaf, a guard-gated enclave of DC Ranch, on the market at $2.2 million. Found on a tree-lined street, the Spanish-style residence features rich hardwoods, beamed ceilings and arched doorways.

The two-story floor plan includes a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry and a formal living room with a fireplace. The master suite, one of five bedrooms and six bathrooms, contains a soaking tub and a separate sitting room/office.

Outdoors, the landscaped grounds center on a pool and spa tiled in Venetian glass. A detached guest casita and a putting green set within an interior courtyard complete the setting.

Public records show that Ogilvy, who has won more than $1.8 million in earnings on tour this year, paid $2.725 million for the property in October 2006. The 37-year-old is also selling a two-acre parcel in the upper canyon area of Silverleaf for $1.5 million. He paid $2.485 million for the lot in 2006, public records show.

Carol J. Woodbury of Realty ONE Group is the listing agent for both properties.

The moves come after the golf pro sold an ocean-facing home in Olde Del Mar for $6 million. He and his wife, Juli, paid $4.15 million for the property, which featured a tennis court and a pool, and had asked as much as $6.75 million for the home in March.

Ogilvy won his eighth PGA Tour title in August at the Barracuda Championship in Reno. In 2006, he bested Jim Furyk, Colin Montgomerie and Phil Mickelson by one stroke to win the U.S. Open.
