Were you hoping to take a swing with a bid on the Naples mansion once owned by professional golfer Rocco Mediate?
Sorry. The auction for the home built for Mediate in Talis Park has been canceled.
Elite Auctions was scheduled to conduct an auction at the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom luxury home at 16770 Prato Way.
“Saturday’s auction has been cancelled and the property has sold prior to auction by the Elite Auctions team,” said Randy Haddaway, president of Elite Auctions, in an email Thursday afternoon.
Mediate, who famously lost the 2008 U.S. Open to Tiger Woods in a sudden-death playoff , lost the home when it was seized by SunTrust Bank after living in it for almost a decade.
Jay and Amy Oyer, of Naples, flipped the home after purchasing it for $2 million while it was in bankruptcy.
Amy Oyer said they saw the home as a good investment and a “diamond in the rough” needing a little bit of TLC.
The home, originally built with Tuscan-style designs, was renovated with a more contemporary look. The Oyers added a second master suite, along with another full bathroom and all new wood flooring.
After the home was on the market for two years and a number of deals fell through, the Oyers accepted an offer.
“The property just received an offer that was acceptable to the seller (pre-auction) and the property is now under contract,” Haddaway said.
Details about the offer and the buyer have not yet been disclosed.
