While superstar tennis player Serena Williams was doing what she does best, being the competitive athlete that she’s known to be on court as she urges her way to the finals at the Australian Open in Melbourne, her high-floor condo along the Wilshire Corridor has just about been sold for a listing price of $1,850,000.
Some time ago, many assumed the condo belonged to her older sister Venus, when in fact Serena Williams purchased the 15th floor spread for $1,275,000 back in September 2002, according to Celebrity Address Aerial.
The 2,403 square-foot condo features living/dining room combo with hardwood floors, two large sets of windows, a gas fireplace in the corner, two bedrooms with a private marble bathroom, the limestone-floored master suite has two bathrooms with a separate shower and tub, of course a walk-in closet.
As for the kitchen, it’s equipped with all higher-grade appliances, granite counter tops, a large island in the center, honey-colored cabinets and beautiful stone tile. The small den/family room has custom-built bookshelves on a full wall and an enormous window overlooking the rooftop.
According to the listing information, Williams paid $2,894.25 per month in HOA dues. Thankfully , the 24-story Remington building provides residents with valet parking, a library off the lobby, wine storage space, doorman and concierge, gym facility and a recreation room only for residents, such great full service amenities are often hard to come by.
Strangely enough the Williams sisters still share an 11,000 square foot mansion in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, in which they’ve reportedly added a private training facility that occupies nearly a 4,000 square-foot two-story wing. Serena on the other hand also purchased an estate for $6,612,000 in the Stone Canyon area of Bel Air back in 2006.
