Sugar Ray Leonard Offering Lavish L.A. Compound for $45M

The lavish Los Angeles Mediterranean-style estate of boxing champ Sugar Ray Leonard is available for sale this fall. The property makes its latest pass in the upper-echelon L.A.-area listings with a price snip that takes its asking price from $46.5 million to $45 million on the nose. Leonard initially had the place marketed at $52 million.

The estate dates to 1952, and unfolds over 1.32 acres. The spacious grounds have plenty of room for full expression of individual elements, with a large lawn for a backyard transitioning to a step-down pool and sun lounge, and a sunken tennis court positioned on the other side of the property. Walking paths connect the various outdoor amenities and diversions.

Lit up atmospherically for a crepuscular shoot, the house looks suitably fairy tale, SoCal style.  The rambling villa’s interiors begin with a splendid foyer: a dramatically groin-vaulted ceiling with stenciled ornament and a lantern pendant, and a stone fountain. Beamed ceilings—the timber lushly peppered with the patina of age-related cracking—arcades, stone tile and hardwood floors, fireplaces, arched windows and French doors are among the details.

The kitchen’s a beaut, and deserves a paragraph to its lonesome. Rustic coffering finishes the unusually high ceiling, there’s enough storage for a commercial enterprise, and the atmosphere is of a Tuscan country house…with a bit of stainless.

A two-level guest house with a terrace for tennis-watching brings the property’s accommodations count to eight bedrooms and fifteen baths across 16,773 sq. ft. of interiors.
