Tennis great Pete Sampras and his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, have listed their newly built compound in Lake Sherwood for $25 million.
FOR THE RECORD:
The gated contemporary sits on 20 hilltop acres with 360-degree views, a north-south tennis court and a swimming pool. The more than 13,000-square-foot main house has a theater and a game room. Including the 1,200-square-foot guesthouse and the 2,000-square-foot detached gym, the property has seven bedrooms and 11 1/2 bathrooms.
Sampras, 38, won 14 Grand Slam men's singles titles and held the No. 1 ranking for 286 weeks. Since he officially retired from the sport in 2003, he has beaten Roger Federer in an exhibition match and John McEnroe in the Outback Champions Series.
The couple offered no reason for selling, but Sampras does have an impressive real estate record, having sold a Beverly Hills mansion in 2008 for $23 million as well as other homes in Benedict Canyon and Beverly Hills since 2003, according to Times reports.
Wilson-Sampras, 36, starred in "The Wedding Planner" (2001), "House on Haunted Hill" (1999), "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997) and "Billy Madison" (1995).
Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olsen & Associates, Westlake Village, has the listing.
They'll stay tuned for a sale
Producer-director Bud Yorkin and his wife, actress Cynthia Sikes, have put their Holmby Hills estate on the market for $49.5 million.
The gated traditional home, built in 1938, has five bedrooms and 7 1/2 bathrooms in about 11,900 square feet. The house has an oversized living room with a sunken bar, a wood-paneled study and a projection room. The master bedroom suite has his and hers bathrooms and walk-in closets, a sun room and vaulted ceilings. Nearly 2.75 acres of park-like grounds include a swimming pool, a tennis court, a gym and rose gardens.
The Emmy Award-winning Yorkin co-founded Tandem Productions with Norman Lear in the early '60s. The company produced such hit shows as "All in the Family" (1971-79) and "Sanford and Son" (1972-77), for which Yorkin was executive producer and a director.
Sikes has appeared on "The Young and the Restless" (2008) and "JAG" (2000-01), among other shows and films, and had a starring role on "St. Elsewhere" (1982-1985). She was Miss Kansas in the 1972 Miss America Pageant.
The house, which epitomizes 1930s Hollywood, was built by gangster Bugsy Siegel, but he never lived there. Cosmetics mogul Max Factor was among later owners.
Yorkin and Sikes are selling because they would like a view property. Perhaps they'd like to check out the Sampras estate.
Linda May of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills North office and Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills South office have the listing.
He'll say adios to his hacienda
Music industry executive Phil Quartararo has his walled and gated Brentwood home listed for $13.25 million.
The hacienda-style residence was built in 1936 and designed by John Byers, known for the Spanish Colonial Revival style. It was expanded during Quartararo's ownership in keeping with its Mexican and Spanish architectural roots.
Time for another smash
