Maybe Justin Leonard has found a second career flipping houses. If he gets his full asking price, the 12-time PGA Tour winner stands to gain nearly $7 million on the resale of a house he bought less than three years ago.
In the fall of 2015, Leonard and his wife Amanda purchased an amazing house in Aspen, Colo., for $9 million. After a remodeling, it’s now back on the market for $15.9 million, according to a Realtor.com report.
Leonard’s best financial year on Tour (2008) netted him $3.9 million in winnings. The sale of this house should top that by a wide margin. His career earnings totaled nearly $34 million on the strength of 12 PGA Tour wins, including a major title at the 1997 Open Championship.
Leonard played in three Ryder Cups and five Presidents Cups, and will forever be remembered for his 1999 Ryder Cup putt at Brookline. WATCH:
The Leonard family’s home in Aspen is something special. It has five bedrooms and five and a half baths, “remodeled to perfection” with white oak floors, custom cabinetry and a gourmet kitchen.
(See photos of the home before it was remodeled here. Then compare them with the current photos below.)
The upstairs master suite includes a fireplace, private deck, and marble bath. Downstairs is a media room with a bar and fireplace.
All furnishings seen in the photos are offered with the house (but the trophies are probably going with Leonard).
A heated driveway, patio and walk will be much appreciated during the snowy winters.
