    Golf legend Fred Couples has a new clubhouse!  After years of residing in La Quinta, CA, Couples has purchased a stunning, Spanish Colonial revival home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. According to public records, Couples paid $4,557,000 on April 4, 2012 for a four-bedroom, four and a half bathroom, 5,661 square foot home.

    The estate is set behind gates on picturesque South Carmelina Ave. Beautifully designed and crafted, the property features gorgeous gardens, beau detailing and top-notch finishes throughout. All spaces flow seamlessly together and to the outdoors for the ideal California lifestyle. Gas lanterns and a private courtyard entry way lead to the gracious foyer with a sweeping staircase, a step-down living room, formal dining room and inviting library. A fabulous cook’s kitchen and family room opens through French doors to the loggia, outdoor living room with fireplace, sparkling pool, spa and detached poolside guesthouse. The home was originally designed as a five-bedroom home with maid’s quarters, but it is currently being used as a three-bedroom with an oversized laundry room, upstairs family room and vast his & hers master closets.

    In November 2011, Couples listed his 5,173 square-foot, four-bedroom, five-bathroom home in La Quinta for $4,195,000. That home is now off the market.
