Serena Williams is one of the most famous tennis players in the world who has built an incredibly impressive résumé to go with her superstar status. But did you know she has an equally impressive real estate portfolio?
Read on to get a glimpse inside her stunning residences from the Sunshine State to the City of Lights and of course the Beverly Hills mansion where she lives with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and their daughter Olympia.
Serena Williams’ Paris apartment
Back in 2007, Williams purchased a pad in Paris’ 7th arrondissement (district) as a place to reside whenever she plays in Europe. In 2016, she gave fans a tour of the two-bedroom flat.
“So here’s a tour of my Paris apartment,” she said as she showed her followers around. “I wanted to do gray floors. I painted all the doors black. Added a pop of color through the window treatments and kept it pretty neutral.”
The athlete then revealed that her favorite feature about the place is her “makeshift bar” which is nestled between floor-to-ceiling drapes and has vintage artwork hanging above it.
Williams also showed off her kitchen, which she had completely redone. In the video, she also took viewers through her wardrobe closet and concluded with a peek at the two bathrooms.
Her Palm Beach Gardens estate
In 2015, Williams moved into her new home (pictured below) in South Florida’s Palm Beach Gardens after selling a property she and her sister, Venus Williams, co-owned in the area.
The Queen of the Court’s Palm Beach Gardens estate, which was listed for $2.5 million, is 5,842 square feet and sits on 1.25 acres of land. According to Forbes, it boasts five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, and has a pool, as well as a spa, outdoor kitchen, and covered patio.
The stunning home is also where Williams, her hubby, and daughter spent time in quarantine during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. And because gyms and public courts were closed for months, Ohanian decided they needed to build a new gym and tennis court.
“We built a tennis court and we built a gym. It’s so cool,” Williams said during a press conference (per Essentially Sports). The tennis court is so fun. I go there and it’s my own sanctuary. I’m like, ‘why haven’t I done this 20 years ago?’”
Williams and Ohanian’s Beverly Hills digs
Last but not least on the list of Williams’ beautiful properties is her and Ohanian’s Beverly Hills mansion.
In 2017, the tennis champ moved from Bel-Air to the country’s most famous zip code. She and Ohanian bought the home not long after welcoming their first child together.
The 6,000-square-foot Spanish-style residence is located in the Summit Estates gated community and their neighbors include other high-profile residents like Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani.
Hello! Magazine noted that the property is a three-story home with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a large wet bar with a glass-front wine cellar, a built-in grilling station, and a swimming pool.
