Check out our first “Prime Property” below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Our “Prime Property” this week has made headlines not only because of its price tag and beauty, but because it is the newly listed home of retired professional baseball player Barry Bonds. This 17,000 square foot masterpiece designed by renowned architect Robert Sinclair is located in Los Angeles, California in the very exclusive gated community of Beverly Park. The Beverly Park neighborhood has no shortage of celebrities or impressive estates and Bond’s home is no exception. It is situated on 1.85 acres and is rumored to have 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a music studio, a home theatre, wine cellar, gym, spa and an elevator. The interior of the home features soaring ceilings, magnificent stone moldings, marble and travertine floors, tray ceilings and some custom murals throughout. The beautifully manicured property features lush landscaping complete with a pool, pool house, spa, hot tub and sports court.
The baseballer, who has recently undergone legal troubles arising from his purported use of steroids, amassed a fortune of over $180 million dollars during his 21 year career. Property records indicate that he paid $8.7 million for the house back in 2002, before adding another 6,500 square feet addition during a remodel. He stands to make a serious profit, as the home just went on the market for $25 million. It will be interesting to see what he purchases next.
