AUSTIN, Texas, April 11 (UPI) -- Disgraced cycling champion Lance Armstrong has sold his home in Austin for $3.1 million, but plans to remain in the central Texas city, officials say.

Local real estate agents said the house at one time had been listed for $10 million, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

The home, which Armstrong purchased in 2004, was appraised on the 2012 county tax rolls at $3.9 million.

Armstrong plans to stay in Austin, a spokesman said.

Al Koehler, 49, founder of a company that buys oil and gas royalties and mineral rights, purchased the 7,850-square-foot home and 1.7 acres of property.

Armstrong spent two years renovating the Spanish-style property. His office had a fireplace and leather-covered floors and a master suite featured a stainless steel fireplace. In 2008, the home was featured in Architectural Digest magazine.
