This summer’s increasingly hot real estate market looks to add another huge listing as boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard has placed his Los Angeles villa on the market for $51.99 million. This seven-bedroom Italian-style home sits in Los Angeles’ Palisades Riviera, spanning two acres of luxurious amenities.
The main residence is a 16,773 square-foot that boasts a span of luxury details. Designed personally for the Leonard family by renowned architect Richard Landry, the property immediately wows visitors with an entrance into a grand motor court, showing off an ivy-covered façade behind double gates.
The splendor only continues inside with the formal foyer that leads into the grand center hall. Beamed ceilings lead the guest through oversized living rooms, master bedrooms, and formal dining rooms.
A stone fireplace frames the master suite, and expands into a pair of balconies overlooking the sprawling greens. Further main-home luxuries include a solarium, six fireplaces, a center island chef’s kitchen, stone floors imported from Jerusalem, and a wide range of European-made furnishings.
As for the grounds, a number of additional structures dot the verdant lawns. All connected by winding paths, visitors can tour the pool, tennis court, putting greens, spa, patio, guest house, and the outdoor lounge area. The tennis court sits below a raised deck for viewing matches, and the swimming pool includes a poolside kitchen to entertain guests.
Sugar Ray Leonard is an all-time great boxer, winning world titles in five separate weight divisions. In 2002 he was voted by The Ring as the ninth greatest fighter of the last 80 years.
