Professional golfer David Duval, and his, wife, Susie, are selling homes in Cherry Hills Village for less than they paid for them.
Together, they are asking $14 million, about 29 percent less than the $19.8 million they had paid for the homes.
“You get to a point in your life where you try to simplify,” Susie Duval was quoted in today’s Wall Street Journal in today’s paper. She said that her husband travels frequently on the PGA tour and they are looking for a home with less land in the area.
Duval, once ranked as the No. 1 golfer in the world, and Susie paid $12.4 million for the larger home at 1000 E. Oxford Lane. The home, on 7.5 acres, includes 14,200 square feet of living space, including the 8,000-square-foot main home. It is now listed at $9 million, down from the previous asking price of $15.8 million. They paid $12.4 million in 2005.
This is how Rollie Jordan, who is listing it with fellow Kentwood Co. broker Darrell Hamilton described the home, on her website.
“Mediterranean masterpiece with a classic Italian villa exterior & opulent interior. This estate is an exquisite home for those who appreciate it all & want one-of-kind historic villa with the splendor of the 20’s, gated, circle drive, fountains, great equestrian property-barn/horse. Deep well!”
The estate also includes a his-and-her-pool, cabanas, two guest apartments, a lodge and conference center.
The Duvals paid $7.4 million in 2005 for the other home, a 7,600-square-foot home on 4.4 acres at 135 Meade Lane. It includes a 2.25-acre putting green. The putting green parcel can serve as a building site that can be sold separately for $1.1 million, according to Kentwood broker Jordan’s website.
Jordan described the home as a “rare gem hidden in the pines with a spectacular lake view and hold putting green, salt-water pool, and separate guest apartment.”
It also includes a wine cellar that can hold more than 1,500 bottle, a patio with an outdoor fireplace and a media room.
The Duvals has been living in this home, while renovating the larger one. The homes are 1.6 miles from each other – a four-minute drive.
