    Former tennis great Pete Sampras has put down his professional racket, but he’s still in the real estate game. He and his actress wife Bridgette Wilson-Sampras are selling their newly-built, custom estate in the guard gated community in Lake Sherwood, a sub-division of Thousand Oaks, California. The home was placed on the market in March of 2010, and has yet to find a buyer. Now, the price has come down to $19,950,000 in hopes that someone will take the massive property off their hands. In the meantime, property records show that the 14-time Grand Slam-winning tennis ace and the former Miss Teen USA are shacking up with their two kids in a $5.6 million pad at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the star-studded Brentwood area of Los Angeles.

    While they enjoy their new digs, their former home sits atop a hill, waiting for a buyer. The new contemporary home is on a 20 acre lot, boasting unobstructed 360 degree views with complete privacy. The main house spans approximately 13,000 square feet. There is also a separate 2000 square foot gym, and a 1200 square foot, fully-contained guest house.

    The home features include a blend of teak, white oak and Anigre woods. There are imported stones and the highest quality finishes throughout. Clean lines, sleek decor and simplicity make this a world class architectural estate. Interior features include a massive theater/game room combo with separate poker room, master with “his” and “hers” separate bathrooms and more. The grounds are second to none and include a North/South tennis court with lights (naturally), massive manicured lawns, an infinity pool, covered verandas and more.
