Williams bought the property four years ago through a trust in her name for $4.125 million, records show.

Williams, 36, has held the top female tennis ranking for 319 weeks over the course of her illustrious career. In addition to seven Wimbledon titles, seven Australian Open titles, six U.S. Open titles and three French Open titles, she also has four Olympic gold medals.

She took a break from the tennis tour this spring and gave birth to her first child in September.
