Barry Bonds drops price for his Beverly Hills mansion
Want to live like Barry Bonds?
Well, you’re in luck. Kind of.
The home run king (yes, we know some of you don’t really consider him the home run king) is selling his Beverly Hills mansion. And after not getting a lot action from potential buyers over the last 11 months he has dropped the price by a whopping $1.5 million.
Before you start crunching some numbers, however, we have some bad news: He’s dropped it from $25 million to $23.5 million.
So, yea, it’s still a pretty pricey situation. Bonds is looking to make a pretty penny of this house considering he bought it for just $8.7 million in 2002.
Realtor.com has some details on the swanky pad:
Bonds’ enormous mansion is one of his finest home runs, which is saying something considering he hit 762 bombs over the course of his career. Beyond its sheer size — Bonds expanded the compound-estate by 5,500 square feet after buying it — the Hall of Fame property is flush in the finer things of life.
Looking right at home on its 1.85 acres, the seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom manse comes complete with "smart home" technology, allowing a person to control a number of functions from the touch of an iPad or iPhone (probably Android devices, too).
But those are just words. Let’s look at some photos of what you’ll get for your cash.
