Golfer Luke Donald, the England-born, Northwestern University alumnus who at one time was the world’s top-rated golfer and also won the PGA Tour Player of the Year award, and his wife, Diane, on Feb. 12 sold their six-bedroom, 10,555-square-foot mansion in Northfield for $3.9 million.
The couple paid $3.725 million for the mansion in 2008 and first listed it in July for $4.5 million. Built in 2006, the two-story, traditional-style mansion has eight bathrooms, five fireplaces, a butler’s pantry, a golf simulation room, a wine cellar, a workout room, and a bar and entertainment area. Outside on the more than acre-sized property are a bluestone patio, outdoor fireplace, pool and spa.
Listing agent Lindy Goss did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Public records do not yet identify the buyer.
The Donalds own an eight-bedroom, 12,150-square-foot mansion in Jupiter, Fla., which they built in 2014. Their mansion is in the exclusive Bear’s Club, which features a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, and they count among their neighbors another high-profile former north suburban resident, basketball legend Michael Jordan, whose nine-bedroom, 26,299-square-foot mansion is just around the corner. Golfer Michelle Wie’s 8,942-square-foot mansion is a short distance away.
