Former pro golfer Joe Ogilvie lists $5.5 million West Austin mansion

Austin-based retired professional golfer Joe Ogilvie has officially put his West Austin mansion on the market.


Ogilvie, a former PGA Tour player and four-time National Tour tournament winner, retired from golf in 2014 and is currently a partner at Wallace Capital.

At 6,682 sprawling square feet with six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms and Hill Country views for more than 40 miles, the Georgian-style home on 10 Cicero Lane was listed on Feb. 24 for a crisp $5.5 million.

The house was purchased by Ogilvie and his wife Colleen back in 2007. The pair previously listed the home in 2021 for $4.75 million, and received offers above the asking price, but had to hold off due to a struggle to find a new home.

The heftier price, according to a report from San Antonio Express-News, is meant to reflect a price closer to the offers they received last year. The couple’s new home is in the same neighborhood.

Located in the far west gated Rob Roy neighborhood, the mansion was built in 1985 but has since been updated with several local interior designers, including Mark Ashby. The main level begins with an expansive living room, opening up to a large deck that overlooks the pool for entertaining.

.The kitchen provides ample room for the chef of the house, with a stylish prep island and sink, induction cooktop and bright white cabinetry. The primary suite, also on the main floor, is a serene oasis with its adjoining sunroom, fireplace and spa bathrooms with matching white finishes.

Upstairs you’ll find three additional bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet, plus two full bathrooms surrounding a large family room space. On the same floor, an office and “The Texas Room,” give you space for a work-from-home setup. Underneath the office is a private guest suite, which has its own entrance, for longer stays.

The listing is held by Moreland Properties Realtor Cord Shiflet.
