While we’re really never surprised by the glass-ceiling shattering achievements of girl boss Serena Williams, the tennis champ has had quite the week. Just a few days ago, Williams listed her luxe Bel-Air mansion for $12 million—and now, she’s purchased another gorgeous property, this time in the guard-gated Summit Estates of Beverly Hills.
Although the new property is also ironically devoid of a tennis court, it does boast 6,000 square feet of open flooring and contemporary finishes. Williams’ new home is also as new as it gets—the three-story, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home was built just earlier this year, on a quarter acre of land.
In the open kitchen featuring the home’s flowing brushed wood floors, custom cabinetry centers around a huge polished marble island—no doubt the perfect place for Williams to refuel between matches.
Another place for the record-setting Grand Slam champion to recharge after working up a tennis sweat? The yoga and massage room, where French doors open up into the rest of the house.
The main living area—which can be directly accessed off the kitchen—is flooded with natural light, thanks to large Fleetwood doors that lead to the veranda and perfectly epitomize the indoor-outdoor California lifestyle.
Serena can take respite after any tennis feat in her new spacious master bedroom. It has the same black-trimmed windows and brushed hardwood floors as the rest of the home, but also has the added perk of some amazing city views. The bright white walls make the space feel big and luxurious—not unlike a spa—and this spa-like serenity continues in the master bath, with a soaking tub and black-striped tile taking center stage.
Without a tennis court (yet), the yard has tons of space for entertaining. A Baja pool, built-in barbecue, and multiple verandas can be accessed from the bottom floor, which will help to maximize seating during those celebratory victory parties.
