Rory McIlroy made a loss in the sale of his Florida mansion, US media has reported.

The multi-million dollar mansion was once the place McIlroy couldn't believe was home.

The six-bedroom waterfront home near Palm Beach was owned by the 29-year-old for the past six years. He paid a reported $11.75m for the home and surrounding land in 2012.

The 10,577sq ft pad included luxuries such as a pool, a games room and its own dock. It also had a putting green, a gym, a one-bedroom guest house and a garage with enough spaces for four cars.

Neighbours included Serena and Venus Williams.

In a promotion video for Bose in 2013 McIlroy said he couldn't believe he could call the mansion home.

"Considering how I grew up, how hard my mum and dad worked for me, how little we had in comparison to all of this," he said.

"It is something I really appreciate and something I definitely don't take for granted."

Earlier this year it was reported Rory and wife Erica had moved into Ernie Els' old home nearby and the property put up for sale with a $13m price tag.

The South Florida Business Journal reports the home sold for $11.5m, a quarter of a million less than the golfer was said to have paid in 2012.
