Barry Bonds Lists Beverly Park Behemoth
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
SIZE: 17,100 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: In December 2011 former professional baseball player Barry Bonds was sentenced to 30 days house arrest—plus 2 years probation and 250 hours of community service—on federal charges of obstruction of justice during purposefully obfuscating testimony he gave regarding the doping scandal that rocked professional baseball in the mid-Aughts.
Presumably Mister Bonds did his time in unabashed luxury at his massive mansion in Beverly Park—the swank gated community of famously steroidal homes in Beverly Hills—that has quietly come up for sale with an asking price of $25,000,000.
Mister Bonds purchased the 2.56 acre property, according to property records, in late 2002 for $8,700,000.
The multi-winged mansion was originally built in 1999 with 11,448 square feet but a subsequent expansion by Mister Bonds brought the total to 17,100 square feet according to the listing agent's website. The two-story sprawler is said to have seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, garage parking for at least 4 four cars and an elevator. (Rich people just hate using stairs, apparently.) There's also a music room, home theater, wine cellar, spa and—natch—a home gym set up. The fully landscaped grounds include double motor courts, a sports court,
Some of Mister Bonds' nearest neighbors in the star-studded 'hood include Denzel Washington and country queen Reba McEntire.
