A Big Bear retreat where boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya and mixed martial arts fighter Tito Ortiz once trained has sold for $1.575 million.

The wooded compound was designed by De La Hoya, who acquired the multi-parcel property in the late 1990s. The boxer eventually sold the retreat to Ortiz in 2007 for $2.1 million. More recently, the property changed hands two years ago for $1.5 million.

Surrounded by tall pines on more than an acre, the compound includes a pair of log-cabin-style homes that combine to offer five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms in nearly 7,200 square feet of interior space.


Both structures feature knotty pine paneling, stone fireplaces and antler chandeliers. Walls of windows and sets of skylights invite natural light while bringing views of the grounds inside.

Outdoors, there’s a putting green and a footbridge that crosses over a running stream. A detached garage once used as a gym has parking for as many as four cars.

Robert Angilella of RE/MAX Big Bear was the listing agent. Willie Wheaton of Will Wheaton Real Estate represented the buyer.
