In the final decades of his life, Arnold Palmer spent the winters in Orlando, Fla., mostly at his Bay Hill Club and Lodge. He'd spend his days on the property, eating breakfast in the clubhouse and going through business matters in his office. His home was near the resort where the PGA Tour event bearing his name is played.
In the spring and summer, however, Palmer would venture back to his hometown of Latrobe, Pa., enjoying the fine western Pennsylvania weather on a golf course that overlooks his Latrobe Country Club. He would welcome guests there, including Pittsburgh Steelers players in summer camp at a nearby college, and answer fan mail and occasionally head over to the club to play golf or practice or welcome club members.
Now that home, technically in Unity Township, is on sale for $800,000.
The Palmer home was built in 1957, boasting four bedrooms, three bathrooms as part of 3,956 square feet of living space on a 0.58-acre lot. Built on a hillside like so many homes in this part of Pennsylvania, the road-facing portion of the property features a large deck shrouding a beautiful patio.
The home boasts several fireplaces, a large great room, oak apportionment on the inside. It was built for entertaining.
Palmer and his first wife, Winnie, took out a $14,000 mortgage in 1957 for the original 1.04-acre property on which the home now sits.
This is not the first time Palmer's home has been listed for sale since his 2016 death. It was listed in April 2018 for $1.1 million until August 2018, when the price was changed to $980,000, before the listing was pulled in January 2019. It was relisted on April 24.
