Tennis Legend Serena Williams Lowers the Price on Her Bel Air Home

A Home Fit for a Tennis Super-Star

Serena Williams can’t seem to catch a break lately. After being fined at the U.S. Open recently over a heated confrontation with the chair umpire stemming from a series of code violations, Williams has now had to lower the asking price for her six-bedroom seven-bath Bel-Air home.

The home was first listed nearly a year ago for twelve million dollars but has now been reduced to an asking price of just under ten million. With six bedrooms and seven bathrooms ready to become someone else’s new home, and a total square footage of over six thousand on offer, this property is a definite steal.

Williams is hoping for a return on her initial investment, as she purchased the estate way back in 2005 for just over six and a half million. While the tennis star is still looking to turn a profit on her home, she may have to settle for a “deuce.”

One of the Largest Lots on Stone Canyon Road

According to the listing, Serena’s home represents a rare opportunity to own one of the largest lots on Stone Canyon Road in Bel-Air. This is a 2.7-acre property that boasts terrific privacy, a collection of incredibly well-maintained gardens, many mature trees, and its own on-site private hiking trails.

Just down the road from Beverly Glen and only a short drive from Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and all the entertainment, shopping, dining, and business opportunities of the greater Los Angeles area, this home is ideally situated for anyone looking to live the life of a star – of sports, film, music, or anything else that can help you pay for the property!

Six Thousand Square Feet of Opulence

Originally constructed in 1935, this beautiful home boasts incredible craftsmanship and excellent choice of materials throughout. Though it retains much of its original charm as a Bel-Air estate, it has been thoroughly updated to provide a sanctuary for a contemporary celebrity, with everything that entails.

The home boasts a gorgeous great room, six opulent bedrooms (several of them en-suite), and a total of seven full bathrooms. The home also has a private hair and beauty salon, a master suite that has to be seen to be believed, a bar, a study lounge, a gorgeous tiled great room, and many, many, more beautiful appointments and features throughout.

To Live or To Build

Regardless of its current owner’s celebrity as one of the greatest tennis players in the history of the sport, this home is ideally built and situated for a family. But, given the size of the estate (nearly three acres) and its location near the center of Bel-Air, it could be a fantastic opportunity for the right developer, as well.

Love or Deuce?

Serena Williams is arguably the best contemporary female professional tennis player and in the running for becoming the greatest of all time. She may have hit a bit of a rough patch this year, but her legacy is, as they say, all but guaranteed.

This Bel-Air home is an absolute stunner, despite the fact that its asking price has recently been lowered, and is still a terrific opportunity for either someone looking to live in the former home of a world-renowned athlete or someone looking to develop the property for even greater profit than what Ms. Williams is hoping for. Are you the right buyer?
