Pete Sampras sells his Lake Sherwood showplace

Tennis legend Pete Sampras and his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, have quietly sold their Lake Sherwood-area compound near Thousand Oaks in an off-market deal. The purchase price was not disclosed.

The hilltop estate had been listed at $19.95 million but was taken off the Multiple Listing Service this summer.

The gated contemporary sits on 20 acres with 360-degree views, a north-south tennis court and a swimming pool. The more than 13,000-square-foot main house has a combined theater and game room plus a separate poker room.

Including the 1,200-square-foot guesthouse and the 2,000-square-foot detached gym, the property has seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and 16,177 square feet of living space.

Sampras, 42, won 14 Grand Slam men’s singles titles and held the No. 1 ranking for 286 weeks. Since he officially retired from the sport in 2003, he has beaten Roger Federer in an exhibition match and John McEnroe in the Outback Champions Series.

Wilson-Sampras, 40, had major roles in “The Wedding Planner” (2001), “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (1997) and “Billy Madison” (1995).

Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olsen & Associates, Westlake Village, who represented the Samprases, declined to comment on the transaction. Tammy Zhu of Coldwell Banker represented the buyers. [Updated at 4:26 p.m. Oct. 31: The buyers were identified as Mr. and Mrs. Yan Zhou, investors from China.]
