(TNS)–Former top-ranked women’s tennis player Venus Williams has sold her Bel-Air home in an off-market transaction for $6.85 million.
The buyers were real estate investor Jerome Eisenberg and wife Jackie Arthur.
Built in 1979, the gated estate has a Tudor-inspired house, a swimming pool with a raised spa, an entertainer’s patio and a lighted tennis court on about two acres.
Marked by an arched entryway, the single-story home is distinguished by sloped ceilings with exposed beams, wood and polished concrete floors and large picture windows. Among the living spaces is a formal living room with a stone fireplace, a gym, an office and an updated kitchen with a breakfast area.
The master suite includes a walk-in closet, a large soaking tub and a steam shower for a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms in some 6,500 square feet of space.
A former Women’s Tennis Association No.1-ranked singles player, Williams has won nearly two dozen Grand Slam titles in her career. The 35-year-old also owns an interior design firm in Florida, and in 2007 launched a line of active wear with retailer Steve & Barry.
Williams bought the home from director-producer-screenwriter Joel Schumacher in 2009 for $5.3 million. Her sister and current top-ranked women’s singles player, Serena Williams, maintains a home nearby.
