Sugar Ray, along with his wife Bernadette, purchased two scenic acres of land in the Pacific Palisades back in 1993; and in 1997 decided to build their dream home. Established in the style of Old-World Italy, this 16773 square foot residence boasts an impressive number of features such as a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen with professional-grade appliances and a center island with a breakfast bar adjoined to the family room to enjoy a luxurious morning with your loved ones. Additionally, there is a solarium, a media room, and a sizable gym in which one could spend their free time.
In terms of living space, this estate provides seven bedrooms with the primary suite containing a lavishly large bath and walk-in closet with a connected balcony to fully allow you to take in the views of scenic California. Furthermore, the property comes with a two-story guest house which contains a first-floor kitchen and entertainment area along with a guest bed and bath upstairs. Connecting these two areas is the lush rolling landscape that has been delicately crafted for the perfect aesthetic which boasts a large pool, spa, putting green, along with a full-sized tennis court.
After retiring from his massively successful twenty-year boxing career, touting world titles in five different weight divisions, Sugar Ray is now known for his motivational speaking tours and sought out for both television and movie appearances. However, the greatest achievement of his post boxing career has to lie with the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation, which raises money for the research and care of pediatric types 1 and 2 diabetes. Sugar Ray and his foundation held many fundraisers and charity events to promote awareness and aid in the research of this cause. In fact, some of those events were held in this very home.
Sugar Ray and Bernadette Leonard’s home is listed on the market for $51.995 million under listing agent Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills.
