Champion Boxer Sugar Ray Leonard Lists Palatial Pacific Palisades Compound for $45M
Championed boxer “Sugar” Ray Leonard just listed his Los Angeles mansion, and it sure is sweet. Architect-to-the-stars Richard Landry—who has designed homes for Mark Wahlberg, Sylvester Stallone, and Wayne Gretzky, among others—played a part recently in designing this Florentine villa-inspired mansion, which dates back to 1952.
The boxer, who was the first boxer to win over $100 million in purses, has listed the compound for $45 million. Between the main manse and the guest house, it boasts a total of eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms in a whopping 16,773-square-foot layout. While the property is undeniably stately, exposed beam ceilings and ornate tile flooring add a warm sense of character throughout while romantic greenery outside welcomes you.
The 1.7-acre escape’s grand living spaces and lush outdoor areas offer idyllic views of the mountains and even the ocean, which is just minutes away. A large pool with a cabana isn’t the only luxury on the premises. With a movie theater, tennis court, and putting green, the only thing this property seems to be missing is, surprisingly, a boxing ring.
Leonard competed between 1977 and 1997, earning respect and titles during those 20 years that make him one of the greatest boxers of all time. This included winning world titles in five weight classes and the lineal championship in three weight classes. And, this ivy-covered mansion is quite a trophy as well.
In June of 2021, the property, dubbed “The Leonard Estate,” was listed for $46.5 million and before that was briefly listed in 2019 for $52 million, according to The Real Deal. For those looking to live in the footsteps of the star boxer, Aaron Kirman, Kirby Gillon, Bryce Lowe and Daniel Milstein of Aaron Kirman Group at Compass hold the listing.
