Jordan Spieth is Now the Proud Owner of a Platinum Series Home
Chances are, you’ve heard the news. Golf prodigy Hunter Mahan has officially sold his Bridge Hollow castle to rising star Jordan Spieth. The story of the sell has been posted all over the web.
Jordan Spieth grossed over $53 million last year, and $7.15 million will go towards taking a house off the hands of fellow golfer Hunter Mahan. It has three living areas, an indoor basketball court, and an underground garage that can fit 12 cars—that’s about 27 golf carts, by our reckoning.
Believe it or not, real estate blogger Candy Evans says that’s a “steal.” Throw in separate guest quarters, a golf simulator good enough for the world’s #1 golfer, and the coolest bathtub you’ve ever seen, and you’ve got a “steal” indeed. It even has a full outdoor kitchen and an elevator.
Did we mention that bathtub?
Spieth’s new 16,655 sq. ft. Preston Hollow home originally hit the market at closer to $9 million, but something tells us the previous owner, fellow golfer Hunter Mahan, isn’t too worried about the $7.15 million closing cost. Mahan and his wife, Kandi, have been long-time Platinum home-owners; they know where to look for a new house.
21 year old Jordan Spieth is probably the newest Dallas-based personality to join those Platinum Series ranks, as local names like Thomas Dundon, the Campisi’s, Tony Romo, and Vanilla Ice all purchased homes from Mark Molthan.
Sorry, just kidding about Vanilla Ice. But in case you’re curious, Tony Romo’s new Glen Abbey place will allegedly measure in at 32,515 square feet.
Hopefully the infinity pool and the world-class wine cellar will keep Jordan Spieth feeling at home this season—2016 just started, and he has already won his 7th PGA Tour event. Add to that a Mark Molthan home, and that’s not a bad start to the new year.
