Former tennis pro Justin Gimelstob finds a Spanish home court in Brentwood

Tennis player turned television commentator Justin Gimelstob has bought a home in Brentwood for $4.4 million.

The Spanish-style house, built in 2006, is a two-story with a rustic clay tile roof and a front-facing balcony. Among the features of the roughly 4,800 square feet of interiors are distressed hardwood floors, custom tilework and stone details.

Broad archways connect living spaces such as the formal dining and living room. An updated kitchen with a wide island and brick backsplash opens to a loggia with a fireplace. The master suite has a sitting area and a fireplace for a total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

Lush landscaping and climbing vines surround the house, which opens at the back to a swimming pool and waterfall feature. A built-in barbecue, patio space and a small lawn fill out the setting.


The property came to market in April for $4.795 million, records show.

Trista Rullan of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, was the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Leonard Dalsemer of Palm Realty Boutique represented the buyer.

Gimelstob, 39, retired from the sport in 2007 with more than a dozen doubles and mixed doubles titles during his career. He currently works as a commentator for the Tennis Channel.
