The former World NO.1 professional tennis player, Serena Williams, certainly earns quite a fortune, and her net worth is estimated to be $180 million. In April 2019, she sold her Bel Air mansion for $8.1 million after living for a long time. Even though the price didn't meet her initial $12 million in 2017, she still won by spending $6.62 million for the property in the first place. Wonder how the house looks like with such a high cost? See it for yourself!
1. Fit For A Champion
Covering over 2.7 acres of land, the mansion was built in 1935 with a 6,101-square-foot main house. With 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, a souped-up salon, a swimming pool, and beautiful surroundings, it's one of the biggest lots in the Stone Canyon area of Bel Air.
Separated by the high hedges and an iron gate, the mansion is so well-protected that it can barely be seen from the road. Its highly secured condition was perfect for Serena and her family for years.
3. Living Room
This large circular living room is the perfect place to host friends and family. It is furnished with a large leather sofa and plush velvet armchairs, as well as a piano by the window. With floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, the room has plenty of natural light.
4. Master Bedroom
The master bedroom has drum pendant chandelier and deep tray ceiling, along with spacious walk-in closets. A TV is facing the bed, perfect for watching a tennis game. French doors that lead to the outside bathe the room in natural light.
5. Master Bathroom
Serena's now-former home has 7 bathrooms, including this master suite. It comes with a marble bathroom, a cushioned sitting area, and a dressing area in addition to a freestanding tub. Perhaps the biggest highlight is the tub, which features gold feet and taps.
6. Cooking Up A Storm
The spacious kitchen, where Serena cooked romantic dinners for her husband Alexis, sports modern appliances like a stainless steel fridge-freezer and double oven. Cherry-colored wooden cupboards with gold hardware line the walls, and marble countertops and splashbacks add the perfect finishing touches.
7. A Meal With Champion
The simple yet elegant dining room features an ornate chandelier hanging over the table and glass doors that offer views out onto the garden. A total of eight guests can join Serena and Alexis for dinner.
8. Work Out At Home
It is no strange that the world-class athlete owns a fully-equipped gym in her house. The gym features both cardio equipment and weights for her to continue her training off the court. While the property doesn't have a tennis court, we can understand that Serena needs a break from her work.
One of the most distinct aspects of the house is its beauty salon. It's kitted out with hair washing stations, TVs, and red chandeliers that coordinate with the chairs. While getting a blowout, you won't miss your favorite shows.
10. Dream Dressing Room
This beautiful dressing room includes 1 luxury lighting, 2 massive floor-to-ceiling mirrors, and 2 master closets. It also has multiple sitting areas.
11. Guests Welcome
Each of the six bedrooms is individually decorated, with this guest space accommodating two queen beds, a dresser, and a wardrobe.
12. Another Guest Room
This guest room is decorated in muted neutral tones, featuring ornate carved wooden cabinets, a patterned armchair, and a statement light fixture.
13. Home Office
There is also a wood-paneled office space which features mirrored bookcases and a large stone desk.
14. The Bar
The party-loving couple even has a fully stocked bar at their former Bel Air home.
15. The Wardrobe
The house will suit a glamorous new owner as it is equipped with space to store a very extensive wardrobe.
16. Swimming Pool
Outside, the house boasts a large outdoor swimming pool, patio, and cabana with an al fresco dining area at the end.
17. The Courtyard
In the vast courtyard, an arched walkway runs parallelly to the manicured lawn, and private hiking trails traverse the estate.
18. Where Is Serena Living Now
Since listing the property for sale, Serena, Ohanian, and their one-year-old daughter Alex have moved into a $6.68 million Beverly Hills mansion. The 0.25-acre home is also lacking a tennis court.
19. The Interior Design Of The New House
Sharon Taftian, the interior designer responsible for the home, said that her initial vision for the house was to make a modern interpretation of Mediterranean design and translated that into the selection of the finishes. The home is a three-story contemporary with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
20. The Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is spacious and applies to the minimalist theme.
21. The Master Bathroom
The master bathroom has been decorated with encaustic tiles to create a Moroccan vibe. Several windows offer unparalleled views.
22. The Dining Room
The dining room follows the rules of light and airy design with minimalist decor too. It has a table for eight people, and there are brushed oak wood floors throughout the house.
23. The Kitchen
There is a large kitchen in the house. It is a double-wide island with a polished marble countertop at the center. Doors in the kitchen open out onto a veranda.
24. The Bonus Room
A lower-level bonus room has much more space for entertaining.
The grassy backyard includes a built-in grilling station and swimming pool, but there lacks a tennis court. We guess that William might just want to relax in the house.
