PGA golfer Shigeki Maruyama sells Bel-Air compound for $14.75 million

Professional golfer Shigeki Maruyama, who has earned a little over $14.7 million for his career on the PGA tour, has sold his home in Bel-Air for $14.75 million.

The Modern-style home designed by architect Ted Tokio Tanaka originally came on the market in 2013 for $19.8 million and was more recently priced at $16.5 million. Maruyama bought the house in 2004 for $7.6 million, records show.

Set on a 3.2-acre promontory, the three-story home features floor-to-ceiling glass, multi-level walkways, a glass-enclosed elevator and outdoor terraces that take in downtown, reservoir and ocean views.


Some 13,300 square feet of voluminous space includes a central hall, a gym, a media room, a sauna and an office. The master suite spans three floors for a total of six bedrooms and nine full bathrooms.

Outdoors, walkways flank a central courtyard with a swimming pool and covered patio. Elsewhere is a lighted tennis court.

Maruyama, nicknamed the “Smiling Assassin,” holds 10 victories on the Japan Golf Tour and three wins on the PGA circuit for his career. More recently, he served as an assistant captain for the Internationals Presidents Cup team.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent. Christina Adams and Betsy Weisberg of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.
