Golf Champ Phil Mickelson Selling Rancho Santa Fe Home
When you’re one of the most successful golfers in history, what kind of home might you have? The kind of home where we all needed to take a moment after taking a look at the photos.
Pro golfer Phil Mickelson has put his Rancho Santa Fe, CA, home on the market for $5,999,950, and this house is beautiful. We mean beautiful.
Let’s take a look: There are five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in roughly 9,100 square feet of living space, all on top of 4.5 acres. In short, this home is something pretty awesome.
Presented by Linda Sansone, the abode sits on a lushly landscaped lot—velvety lawns with mature pepper and olive trees—that evokes images of the Tuscan countryside. This is a home both extravagant and comfortable at the same time.
On the grounds, there are sheltered loggias for relaxing, a pretty magnificent pool lined with cobalt blue Italian tile, a 50-foot aqueduct water feature and the obligatory three-hole putting green.
Inside, there are five sumptuously decorated bedrooms, including a private and romantic master suite with his-and-hers dressing rooms, a luxurious spa bath, a coffee/juice bar and an exercise room.
Also, the artisans were busy in this place: The house is decked out with distressed walnut flooring, Albertini doors and windows, hand-cut and laid mosaic tiles, imported fabrics, honed granite, antique tiles, custom hand-carved walnut cabinetry, hand-carved Canterra stone fireplaces, hand-forged iron gates, custom light fixtures, distressed wood beams, leaded glass windows, seven fireplaces and extensive hand painting.
Of all the extravagant features in this home, though, the most impressive room is the kitchen.
With a magnificent vaulted, open-beam truss ceiling, this kitchen is to die for. The custom cabinets are of hand-carved walnut. The island—possibly the largest we’ve seen—is topped with a impressive slab of marble. There are high-end appliances and enough space to cook for the entire gallery from the 18th hole at Augusta National.
The property also has a summer kitchen and an outdoor fireplace, as well as a four-car garage and a detached single-car garage.
Mickelson was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012, and he is the winner of five major tournaments in his career—including three wins at the Masters (2004, 2006, 2010). Before turning pro, Mickelson was the individual NCAA golf champion three times (1989, 1990, 1992) while playing for Arizona State University. He has finished second in the U.S. Open a record six times in his career.
