Hidden Hills, CA
Billy Blanks has turned Tae Bo into some serious real estate dough! Just last week, the buff fitness mogul signed the papers to sell his Hidden Hills, CA estate to an unknown buyer for $7,300,000. Blanks and his now ex-wife purchased the lot of land on January 31, 2000 for $1,400,000, and eventually constructed a massive estate that was completed sometime in 2001. Blanks first tried to sell the home for $11,500,000 in October 2008. Three years and a four million dollar price chop later, Blanks is finally bidding adieu to the mansion.
Blanks’ just-sold home is a spectacular, one-of-a-kind Mediterranean in the “Ashley Ridge” section of Hidden Hills. Clocking in at over 16,000 square feet, the home has 6 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Mega-luxury features include an indoor ballroom/basketball court (talk about a multi-use room!), a stellar home theater with stadium seating, game room, study and piano room.
The master bedroom comes with a luxurious stone bath with spa tub and steam shower, view balcony and private stairs to the pool and grotto below. The ground feature a large cabana with outdoor kitchen, adjoining waterfalls, fountains, lush landscaping designed for privacy and sweeping, pastoral views.
Additional amenities include a two-room guest suite with private entrance, high ceilings, slab stone countertops and impressive stone floors, a double-iron staircase, numerous skylights, an elevator, custom window treatments throughout, and a huge sliding wall of glass that opens to let the outdoors in.
The garage houses 6 cars and the large, two-acre lot leaves room for the new owners to potentially put in a sports court or keep horse below the main residence.
