Pro golfer Stuart Appleby is hoping for a hole-in-one with his Windermere, FL, home, now on the market for $3.1 million.
According to property records, the home was purchased in 2009 for $625,000. So the golfer stands to pocket a hefty profit if he manages to score his asking price.
The home is perfect for those who need to practice their golf swing. The lakefront residence is in the Isleworth Golf and Country Club, where residents can take advantage of the championship golf course and Lake Bessie views.
Golfer Stuart Appleby’s home
Living room with lake views
Office and trophy room
Kitchen with granite counters and travertine flooring
Pool and spa
The 5,557-square-foot abode offers five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and sits on a half-acre surrounded by lush Florida landscaping.
French doors open to a formal living room with large picture windows looking out to the lake. The adjacent formal dining room leads into the kitchen, which offers granite counters and travertine floors. The kitchen then opens to a breakfast nook and family room, all with lake views. There’s also a wine cellar with an Old World wooden door. The home office and trophy room (clearly, a golf champ needs that space) features built-in wood shelving.
The newly updated and spacious master suite includes a sitting area. Upstairs also offers three more bedrooms, in addition to a home theater complete with wet bar and soundproof walls.
Outside sports a pool and spa as well as an outdoor kitchen, and a terrace with views of nightly sunsets, where you can watch the fireworks display from the area’s theme parks—Windermere is close to Orlando.
The 47-year-old Australian has won nine times on the PGA Tour. In 2010, he won the Comeback Player of the Year award.
