The professional golfer Jesper Parnevik is taking another swing at selling his custom estate in the Sunshine State. After initially listing his waterfront property in Tequesta, FL, last year for $10.7 million, Parnevik and his wife, Mia, recently cut the price on the place to $8.5 million.
Known for his eclectic fashion on the greens—complete with a baseball cap worn with an upturned bill—Parnevik also designed the home, along with his wife.
The couple were “ahead of their time in understanding what buyers would want in 2020,” the listing description notes.
The mansion gives a nod to Parnevik’s Swedish roots. At 13,621 square feet, the crisp, white, and airy layout features five bedrooms in the main house, and four in the guesthouse, and is “architecturally stunning,” with a Scandinavian flair, according to the listing details.
The listing agent, Dory Faxon with the Frankel Ball Realty Group, says it’s a place designed for hosting friends and family.
“It’s the best party house—especially for New Year’s Eve—in the area,” she says.
She notes that the home was built “for a professional athlete but translates very well for someone who loves to live a fun lifestyle.”
The open plan includes marble flooring, a living space, dining room, and open kitchen, as well as an in-home pizza oven.
The picturesque property overlooks a private beach and 120-foot dock. Floor-to-ceiling windows line the public spaces. The massive master suite includes a living area, a huge bathroom with dual vanities, and a wall of windows.
An entertainment area includes a bar and billiard table. An in-home theater will seat 14. And you’ll never be without a delicious vintage, thanks to the 1,000-bottle wine room.
For working out, there’s the gym, and then you can soothe your muscles in the spa, which has a steam shower and sauna, as well as a massage table.
Naturally, the property includes a putting green, as well as a whole wall devoted to storing your golf clubs. Outside, the space has a pool, spa, and outdoor kitchen and dining area. You can stand-up paddle and kayak right from your private beach.
The property also includes an elevator, roof deck, and four-car garage.
Parnevik, 55, spent 38 weeks in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking in 2000 and 2001. His career earnings on the PGA Tour total over $15 million.
