Tennis legend and new mom Serena Williams is holding court in the real estate market.
According to real estate gossip Yolanda, the 23-time Grand Slam singles champ recently paid $6.68 million for a brand-new five-bedroom home in Beverly Hills, CA. The three-story home on a quarter-acre lot boasts an open floor plan and views of the city and valley.
The white kitchen has a black stone island with dramatic white veins. The master bath reverses the color scheme and features black cabinets topped with white stone.
The backyard is mostly pool along with a small grassy area. The deal closed on Oct. 19, and the trust purchasing the 90210 home is the same trust behind a recent for-sale listing in Bel Air.
In Bel Air, Williams is attempting to sell a multiple-acre estate in the Stone Canyon area, according to Variety. The asking price here is $12 million.
The 6,101-square-foot, six-bedroom home is sited on a 2.7-acre lot with old-growth trees, well-tended gardens, and private hiking trails.
A tall hedge hides the powder-blue house, and a colonnade connects the three-car garage to the main house. The house features a semicircular living room with transom windows set above a wall of french doors, and the formal dining room opens to a patio.
The kitchen boasts cherry-colored cabinets, marble counters, and the tallest pot-scrubbing faucet we’ve ever seen. The master suite comes with a Juliet balcony and bath with a claw-foot tub and steam shower.
There’s also an exercise room with a mirrored wall on the main floor, and a backyard pool surrounded by flagstone and headed by an open pavilion with outdoor fireplace.
Williams is the No. 1-ranked women’s singles player and the greatest female tennis player of all time. She holds 39 Grand Slam titles. In September, she gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. The father is Williams' fiancé, Alexis Ohanian, Reddit co-founder.
