Tennis champion Serena Williams just shed the Bel-Air mansion she has been trying to sell since 2017. Originally listed for $11.995 million
then reduced to $9.995 million
, the stately home recently closed for $8.1 million. With so many discounts, this is hardly the victory Williams is used to on the court, but it’s still a win since she scooped the estate for $6.612 million in 2006.Painted a charming light blue, the 6,101-square-foot abode is elegant and brimming with potential. Massive spaces are minimally decorated so the new owner has the chance to customize the home to his or her taste. There’s plenty of room both inside and outside to play with. Sitting on 2.7 acres of land in coveted Stone Canyon, the residence boasts six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a pool and cabana, and peaceful hiking trails.Instead of revamping the home to fit her growing family, Williams decided to sell it and buy a trendier home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area
. Perhaps the renovations would have been too extensive and time consuming, but now the new owner can be the next to contribute to this circa-1935 beauty.Gregory Piechota and Amit Lalji of KASE Real Estate
had the listing, which the LA Times
first reported found a buyer.
