Sugar Ray Leonard is known as one of the greatest boxers of all time. He is selling his Palisades estate for $46.5 million. As a matter of fact, this is the second time he lists his LA mansion. The first time, Leonard was seeking $52 million. The 16,700 square feet mansion is one of the largest lots in the Riviera. It is located at the end of a long and double-gated driveway. It provides security, privacy and quiet.
The neighborhood benefits from a secluded Westside location, insulated by lush greenery and coastal views. Additionally, surrounding the area are numerous parks and some of the best hiking trails in LA. Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner, and Steven Spielberg are among the celebrities to live around the area.
The Olympic Gold Medal boxing champion and his wife rebuilt their home in the late 90s and got married in the backyard. The couple, now empty-nesters, is looking to downsize after 22 years living in the estate.
The main home sits on a 1.7-acre lot and was designed to emulate an Italian villa. The home’s main architect, Richard Landry, has worked on mansions for celebrities like Sylvester Stallone, Tom Brady, and Mark Wahlberg. Inspired by Florentine and old-world architecture, the home is covered with ivy. It features a terracotta tile roof and rustic wood-beamed ceilings.
