French professional golfer Thomas Levet took a loss on the sale of his Palm Beach Gardens home, The Real Deal has learned.

Levet and his wife Caroline received about $1.3 million for the 108 Via Quantera residence in a transaction recorded on Thursday, according to Palm Beach County records. The couple paid nearly $1.5 million for the five-bedroom, 5,500-square-foot house in March 2005, around the time the home was constructed. The property is located in the city’s Mirasol community.

David and Helen Darby are the buyers. The couple received a nearly $1.1 million mortgage from Goldman Sachs Bank USA. Their purchase comes with a golf membership at Mirasol Country Club, according to listings.

Anne Bosso of Bosso Realty listed the home for sale.

Levet has primarily competed on the European Tour over the past decade. His best major tournament result was a second-place finish in the 2002 British Open.
