To round out the past year, retired professional athlete Tony Gonzalez listed this unusually attractive 2019-built, 13,000 sq. ft. modern farmhouse in the Los Angeles area. The NFL star-turned-analyst is asking $28 million for the home, which sits on a .69-acre patch of Beverly Hills, and is surrounded by a high and nearly impenetrable privacy border.
The home’s interiors are a fine example of the style, and strike a suitable balance between urban and rural sensibilities, with a bit of utilitarian chic added for good measure. The common areas—nearly open-concept but for the addition of accent divider walls—feature plentiful hardwood in a muted natural tone and built-in shelving, and use ceiling design and varied pattern for ornament.
Amenities in this house include a pair of wet bars—one servicing an indoor pub-style lounge, and one servicing an indoor/outdoor living room—as well as a homeschooling classroom with a kitchenette, a pool house, an 8-bay underground garage, and a summer kitchen. The master suite needs to be seen.
