Tennis legend Pete Sampras and wife Bridgette Wilson-Sampras are looking to move on from their gated estate in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, asking $8.9 million for the six-bedroom.
The 6,900-square-foot home also includes six-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room, library and wine cellar and a chef’s kitchen with center bar/island and fireplace. The home perfectly weds Traditional and contemporary style, with stone and wood-shingled siding carried indoors via ceiling-height windows in the form of stone fireplaces and hardwood floors.
Nestled among a forest of mature redwoods, the park-like grounds include running streams, a lush lawn, and gardens raised above a terrace with an outdoor fireplace, all on about an acre of property. The Samprases also had a resort-style pool and spa installed since purchasing the home for $5.9 million in 2009.
Master suites on the first and second floor include heated floors and oversized closets, and just off the kitchen sits a dining room whose exposed wood ceilings, fireplace and wall of windows give a cozy yet formal chalet feel.
The former world No. 1 tennis player, “Pistol Pete” won 14 Grand Slam men’s singles tournaments and was renowned for his complete game and surgically precise serve, holding the ATP record for year-end No. 1 rankings, with six.
Wilson-Sampras was 1990’s Miss Teen USA who went on to work as a singer and actress, landing her first role on the soap opera Santa Barbara, and is perhaps best known for her turn as Veronica Vaughn alongside Adam Sandler in 1995’s Billy Madison.
