Lindsey Vonn is a woman on a mission. And that mission goes far beyond a closet filled with gold medals. The alpine ski star is well on her way to becoming a real estate tycoon! Vonn just dropped $2.6 million on a four-bed, five-bath contemporary-style home in the luxe San Fernando Valley suburb of Sherman Oaks, CA. And seeing as it was just last year that she snagged another stunning contemporary for $3.55 million in West Hollywood, CA, it looks like Vonn has the business savvy to rival that Olympian spirit.
Measuring 4064-square-feet, the contemporary estate is a true architectural wonder. Built in 1937 on a peaceful tree-lined street, guests step through the gates to a perfectly landscaped oasis with endless luxurious amenities. An open floor plan carries you through each room with a serene, indoor/outdoor flow. In the kitchen, an oversized island provides a great spot for families to gather over a meal, while top-of-the-line Viking appliances, wine storage, and extensive pantry space would warm the heart of any amateur chef. A family room with towering ceilings, a cozy fireplace, and oversized windows allows plenty of sun to stream in, while a new cerused-oak wall unit with recessed lighting is a sophisticated addition. There’s also a spacious office area on the first floor, which could easily be converted into a fifth bedroom. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, as well as the luxurious master suite with a cozy fireplace of its own, as well as a huge custom walk-in closet, private balcony, and bonus room. Outside, a sparkling swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and BBQ, fire pit, and built-in outdoor home theater make this outdoor space ideal for entertaining guests. There’s no snow, but we’re guessing Vonn doesn’t mind all that much.
