Retired tennis player Pete Sampras recently purchased a $5,600,000 brand-new house. The six-bedroom mansion sits on a gated, 0.55-acre flag-shaped lot at the end of a street in Los Angeles' Brenthood neighborhood. The home includes two master suites, room-sized closets, five-and-a-half baths, heated-floor bathrooms, a library, a media room, floor-to-ceiling windows, a large gourmet kitchen, a family room, and a wine cellar. It also features include sunny lawns and streams, a large grassy back yard, and an outdoor entertaining area with an outdoor kitchen, a theater, a spa, and a natural redwood forest. The house had been listed for $6,995,000.
Sampras' previous 10,376-square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills was listed in 2008 for $25 million (he had bought it for $8.3 million in 2001), and was later price-chopped to $23 million. Finally, he sold the estate for $16,980,000 to Will & Grace creator Max Mutchnick.
