Buy Pro Golfer Hunter Mahan’s Long Cove Lake House for $3.8: Lakefront With a Pool!

Share News:

We all know and love pro golfer Hunter Mahan, who used to live in the Creeks of Preston Hollow, but sold his home to another well-loved, Dallas-born and raised pro golfer, Jordan Spieth.

Hunter and his family moved to Highland Park. I knew they had built a gorgeous lake house out at Long Cove, our closest heart throb, vacation home nirvana only a couple hours east of Dallas on the deepest, coolest part of Cedar Creek Lake.

Long Cove rocks.

The Mahan’s built 13380 Waterside Drive in Malakoff in 2015, creating a picture perfect, 5356 square foot home with wrap-around porch, six bedrooms (really cute bunk rooms) and as many baths plus two half baths, a stunning infinity edge swimming pool positioned right by the lake, a boat dock, fire pit, outdoor kitchen all on 1.27 treed lakefront acres. Hunter even has an exercise room. The home evokes a clean white palette, giving off sun-bleached, casual summer vibes.

But this is not a simple lake house, no roughing it here. The kitchen is loaded with enough gourmet cooking gadgetry for any top chef, there is plenty of relaxation space, very generous bedrooms, some of which have been made into fun “bunk rooms”, and luxury touches everywhere. Like the master bath, complete with soaking tub and oversized shower. There is a pool house with an outdoor grill and kitchenette. And if the kids just want to run in the thick, tickly East Texas grass, there is plenty of that to curl your toes in. Plus Long Cove has all the lake toys available to members who own there: check out the toy barn.


Oh and Candy, Hunter’s wife, was a genius when it came to designing the laundry room: it’s huge, has a big sink and double washer & dryers.

I mean, I’ve always said I would do red and white in a vacation home kitchen: this kitchen is adorable. 

The only reason why the Mahon’s may be selling this awesome lake house for $3.8 million, is they are likely building another. Stay tuned, stay very tuned.
