Gossipextra.com, a gossip site that covers South Florida, reports that Rory McIlroy has signed a contract to buy one of the most luxurious homes in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The story, which cites "several real estate sources" and "a golf source" but doesn't have anyone confirming the deal on the record, says that McIlroy came close to matching the property's list price of $10.9 million. Here's more:
The house, built in 2012, offers 10,000 square feet of unique designs. There are six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a world-class gym, two stories of Zen decor and a private deep-water dock in the back.
Nice touch: There’s a putting green!
McIlroy, this year’s winner of the PGA Championship, will likely play across the street, at PGA legend Jack Nicklaus‘ private course at The Bears Club.
