Since the mansion sits on a hill, getting down to the dock or the main waterfront area can be carried out via a cable tram which was installed by the celebrity couple themselves. Sugar Ray Leonard It’s round three for global boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard’s Florentine villa-inspired home in Southern California.The extravagant mega-mansion was originally listed three years ago for US $52 million, and re-listed last year at a discounted rate of US $46.5 million. Lowering the price, a little further, the boxing star has once again re-listed his mansion, this time for an asking price of US $45 million. Leonard and his wife Bernadette purchased what was then two different properties side by side, in the year 1993 and converted it into the mega mansion it is today. After being purchased, the mansion was designed by renowned architect Richard Landry who is well known for his period-esque mansions that boast only the most dramatic detailing. The architect was asked to custom design the elaborately embellished, vine-encrusted residence which earned it the title of a “Florentine inspired villa.” Spread across approximately 17,000 square feet, the mega-mansion has a total of eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms. Additionally, the indoor areas include spaces like a formal dining room, multiple lounge areas, an office, a gym, and a theatre, while the outdoors features a private tennis court, a golf course, and a massive garden area. What makes the home such an impressive property is the number of custom features that stand out in the minimally designed, neutral toned space. Elements like the exposed wooden beam ceilings, ornate tile flooring, castle-esque oil paintings and tapestries, and gigantic, wood-trimmed arched windows add character the space, something that is hard to find in properties today. The two-story family room, like most of the home, is a lightfilled retreat with gorgeous glass doors and soaring ceilings. Most of the rooms resemble each other in terms of décor and design, keeping it minimal yet elegant, Sugar Ray Leonard 28|L U X E B O O K|N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 2 N O V E MB E R 2 0 2 2 |L U X E B O O K| 29
