Following a highly controversial and emotional final match at the US Open, Serena Williams is not wasting any time seeing to her other affairs. Specifically, she is getting serious about selling her 6,101-square-foot mansion that has been on the market for almost a year. The tennis superstar, who also holds celebrity status with best friends like Meghan Markle
by her side, just reduced the price from $11.995 million to $9.995 million and upgraded the pad’s style as well.When the property was first listed
, it had dark and outdated interiors, but in a play to get a buyer interested, Williams has made it airy and chic. A neutral color palette makes spaces feel even larger than they are and details like crystal chandeliers and tufted headboards exude elegance and femininity.Built in 1935, the lovely, light blue home is situated on 2.7 acres of manicured land. A new owner won’t get a tennis court with this purchase, but will gain six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a pool, and multiple hiking trails.While the professional athlete is seeking a buyer for this residence, she may be busy decorating another nearby. Soon after listing this house last year, Williams scooped up a more contemporary abode in Beverly Hills.To inquire about the tennis champion’s Bel Air spread, contact listing agent Gregory Piechota of Keller Williams Realty
first reported the price change.
