Masters champ Bubba Watson’s lake house for sale

Here’s a chance to truly be “master of your domain.”

Masters champion Bubba Watson’s swank lakefront home in Lexington, N.C. is on the block for $1.45 million, reports.

The former UGA player donned the coveted green jacket Sunday evening after a rousing final round playoff in which he overcame Louis Oosthuizen.

Bubba bought the 5,000-square-foot gated home at High Rock Lake for $1.1 million in 2009. It’s been on the market since February, and the prospects for selling the house might improve with Watson’s newfound celebrity.

Here’s a brief description: “It boasts four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and two indoor kitchens spread across three levels. Sharing the two-thirds of an acre is a detached three-car garage with living quarters above it. Outside of the main house, perched over the water, is an entertaining area with a heated salt water pool and spa, a stainless steel outdoor kitchen, an outdoor fireplace and a specially formatted exterior television. In the 25-foot water below, a floating aluminum floating pier and covered boat lift allow for easy access for fishing excursions.”

The property’s listing agent said the house has been the summer home (April through October) for Watson and his wife, Angie. Their main home, and where they live in the winter, is in Scottsdale.

The Watsons adopted one month-old son, Caleb, March. So, this year, rather than living in Lexington, they are are renting in Orlando where the law requires them to live while the adoption process is completed.

Pictures of the house can be seen here.

Kind of like George Costanza when he bought Jon Voight’s car?

Why is this listed in the bargains section of the AJC ? Is this house really that good of a deal ?

Same guy that they wouldn’t let drive his General Lee “the car of hate” (Give me a Fvc#inp break.) around the Nascar track.
I hope he gets every nickel he wants for that sweet place.
Stand tall fellow Redneck brethren!
