How does Pete Sampras make his way onto Busted Coverage besides having a cute wife and the rare U.S. Open appearance? This house. This 16,000 sq. ft. house sitting on top of a mountain in Thousand Oaks, Califoria. This $20,000,000 contemporary masterpiece. For some reason, Pete is unloading it after having it built in 2009 for $25mm. You know how we know Sampras has brass balls? Because he’s willing to lose $5mm on a real estate deal.
Via the realtor:
Custom Contemporary Masterpiece In Prestigious Guard Gated Lake Sherwood THE absolute premier custom estate in guard gated Lake Sherwood! Celebrity owned new contemporary masterpiece on a majestic 20 acre lot boasting unobstructed 360 degree views with complete privacy.
Um, no offense to the realtor, but we’d hope the gate is guarded if we splurge on a $20mm house. Why? Because we’re going to have about $1mm worth of hookers and we know there are assholes out there who’ll be after our broads. You see that gate on the Sampras compound? Yeah, worthless unless you have a pack of Dobermans running loose. Anyway.
