Tennis great Pete Sampras sells scenic Brentwood estate for $7.25 million
Retired tennis star Pete Sampras and his wife, actress-singer, Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, have sold their Brentwood-area home for $7.25 million.
The gated estate on more than half a wooded acre had been listed at $7.9 million at the time of the sale. The couple bought the home in 2009 for $5.9 million, public records show.
Renovated and expanded during their seven years of ownership, the traditional-style house has a library, a theater room and a wine cellar in 6,900 square feet of living space. There are upper and lower master suites for a total of six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
Other features of note include a see-through fireplace shared by the family and dining rooms. In the kitchen, skylights and wide picture windows bring in natural light and views of the grounds.
Outdoors, mature redwood trees provide a scenic backdrop for the swimming pool and outdoor kitchen. Built-in water features, up-lighting, running streams and mature landscaping complete the setting.
Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson & Associates was the listing agent. Joe Babajian of Rodeo Realty represented the buyer.
Sampras, who officially hung up his racket in 2003, won 14 Grand Slam men’s singles titles and held the No. 1 ranking for 286 weeks. In retirement, he has beaten Roger Federer in an exhibition match, John McEnroe in the Outback Champions Series and Patrick Rafter in the Del Mar Development Champions Cup.
The 43-year-old Wilson-Sampras has appeared in films including “Billy Madison” (1995), “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (1997) and “The Wedding Planner” (2001).
