A Tour Of Serena Williams' $12 Million Bel Air Mansion

Serena Williams, the world's highest-paid tennis player with an estimated net worth of $180 million, sold her longtime Bel Air home for $8.1 million in April 2019.

Although Serena didn't sell her house for $12 million that she had initially asked in October 2017, it's still a win since she purchased it for $6.62 million in 2006. So what does her previous home look like? Read on to find out!

1. Fit For A Champion

Built back in 1935, this mansion comes with more than 2.7 acres of land with a 6,101-square-foot main house. It's one of the largest lots in the Stone Canyon area of Bel Air, featuring six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a large swimming pool, a souped-up salon, and private hiking trails through lush green surroundings.

2. Super-Secluded

The house is protected by a gate and high hedges that make it almost impossible to be seen from the road. It was the perfect retreat for Serena, her husband Alexis Ohanian, the Reddit co-founder, and their daughter Alexis Olympia Jr. over the past ten years.

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.

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.

9. Salon

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.
