Volleyball stars Casey and Kerri Walsh Jennings buy a plantation-inspired home in Manhattan Beach
Three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings and her husband, beach volleyball player Casey Jennings, have bought a new home in the Manhattan Beach area for $2.6 million.
Set on an oversized lot, the plantation-inspired house was built by local football-star-turned-developer Jim Obradovich, who won a Rose Bowl and a national men’s volleyball title in the 1970s while at USC.
Two large terraces extend from the second level for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.
Anthony Kostelak of RE/MAX Estate Properties handled the sale, which closed off-market.
Kerri Walsh Jennings, 38, teamed with Misty May-Treanor to win gold in beach volleyball at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Summer Games. Last year, she and teammate April Ross won a bronze medal at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
Casey Jennings, 41, won the AVP Manhattan Beach Open championship in 2013 with Matt Fuerbringer. A former best defensive player, he has seven tour victories for his career.
