We all know the kind of money tennis brings in for the players such as Pete Sampras. A good win in the major tournaments would have you bagging a few million dollars in just a week’s time.
So we could all agree that for most pro tennis players money is not an issue. They have tons of assets and investments with all this money they are bringing in.
So often, you will hear on the news a mansion belonging to a tennis tycoon on sale; this is not to mean that the people selling the houses are out of money.
Most of them sell to invest in bigger and better houses. After all, they need to be practicing on their favorite surfaces; this means they have to manicure those courts in their backyards to their liking.
Tennis legend Pete Sampras’ Los Angeles home hit the market last night at $8.9 million.
Listing agent Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson and Associates Brokerage confirmed the listing to Mansion Global.
Built in 2009, the house has two master suites and four additional bedrooms, six full bathrooms and one half-bathroom, according to the listing.
Sampras, winner of 14 Grand Slam titles, and his wife, Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, bought the property new for $5.9 million in 2009, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.
The home is set behind private gates at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, according to the listing, and was recently expanded.
It includes an open floor with custom two-story beamed ceilings, wood floors and custom picture windows.
The 6,900-square-foot residence also features an oversized library, which can also be used as a theater/screening room, a pool and spa. It also has an outdoor kitchen and massive manicured lawns that add to its forest-like atmosphere, according to the listing.
Well, this is one of the tennis who’s looking to sell probably one of his many mansions for a whopping $8 million. If interested you might give him a call and tap the blessings of the legend Pete Sampras.
