When one thinks Orange County, California, Olympic champion skiers are not the first thing that comes to mind, which may be why six-time medalist Bode Miller has moved on from his Coto de Caza home. The 38-year-old Miller reeled in $4.2 million for the 10-acre estate, for which he paid $4.14 million in 2013.
Originally listed at $4.99 million before dropping to $4.65 earlier this year, the 8,000-square-foot home has a decidedly Tuscan vibe, with stone patios and walls and terra cotta tiles adorning the roof and the perimeter of a back fire pit.
Situated past a long drive with a fountain-equipped motor court, the home opens with a tiled foyer featuring a sweeping wood staircase with wrought-iron balusters and decorative beams in the soffit ceiling.
A wrap-around couch in the living room gets plenty of light through oversized sliding glass doors, while the formal dining room has a glass chandelier, a pair of French doors and room for an eight-seat table. When it comes to meal time, though, the new owners will have plenty of seating options: a corner off the enormous kitchen holds an L-shaped booth that could easily fit four, while one of the two kitchen islands has seating for five. Also included in the kitchen are three ovens, three sinks and three dishwashers.
Other living spaces include a library, a home office, a wine room, a pair of laundry rooms, a butler’s pantry, five bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. There’s also a sand volleyball court and a garage with room for six cars.
Among Miller’s accomplishments is a pair of World Cup championships in 2005 and 2008. He also won gold in the Olympics’ first running of the Super Combined format—a single-day combination speed race and slalom run—in the 2010 Olympics in Whistler, Canada.
