Real Estate

Pete Sampras and Bridgette Wilson have bought and sold a number of impressive properties around the Los Angeles area over the years.

Beverly Hills & Brentwood: In 2001 Pete and Bridgette paid $8.9 million for a 10,000 square-foot mansion in Beverly Hills. They listed this home for sale in mid-2008 for $23 million. They eventually accepted an offer of $17 million from "Will & Grace" creator Max Mutchnick. Mutchnick and his husband performed a massive renovation on the property. In 2018 Mutchnick sold the home to Adam Levine for $34 million. In April 2021 Adam Levine sold the home for $45 million.

In 2009, Pete and Bridgette purchased a property in Brentwood for $5.6 million. In 2016, Sampras put this property on the market for $8.9 million. They accepted $7.25 million in February 2017.

In 2014, the couple spent about $5.9 million on a new property in Bel-Air. Also in 2014, it was reported that Pete Sampras had purchased a second property in Bel Air, California for just over $3.5 million. This second property was adjacent to the house they had already purchased.

Thousand Oaks: In 2009 Pete and Bridgette completed construction on a 16,000 square-foot mansion on Lake Sherman in Thousand Oaks, California. They did not stay in the 20-acre property for long, listing it in March 2021 for $25 million. The mansion comes with a perfectly positioned and lit tennis court, of course, along with seven bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, lots of closets, and a position on a hilltop that allows for privacy and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.  It is basically 16,000 square feet of awesome, including a separate 2,000 square foot gym, and a 1,200 square foot guesthouse. They apparently sold this home in an off-market deal in late 2013 for an undisclosed price, but what was reported to be a bit more than $13 million. The sale price is not listed on the home's recorded price history on public real estate records.

Bel Air: At the end of 2013, Pete and Bridgette paid $6 million for a 2-acre property in Bel Air. A few months later, in early 2014, they paid $3.5 million for a neighboring home down the hill from their other property. The Samprases turned that home into a gym and man cave.
