Former boxer Oscar De La Hoya’s former mansion in Bel-Air is asking $18.5 million

An estate in Bel-Air that was formerly owned by the legendary boxer Oscar De La Hoya has been placed back on the market with a lofty asking price of $18.5 million.

According to The Times, in 1997, De La Hoya purchased a property in the contemporary design for the price of $3.35 million. At the time, the boxer was 24 years old and had just defended his welterweight title against Hector Camacho.

The boxer, who bought the house in 1990 and had it completely renovated while he owned it, listed it for sale in 2000 for $5.5 million and received offers. After going on and off the market several times before to its sale in 2002 for a total of $3.75 million, it was finally transacted.

Access to the two-story home that sits on a hillside in lower Bel-Air and is approached via a driveway that is 300 feet long is controlled by two sets of gates.

After passing through a wrought-iron front door, one enters a formal entry that leads to a foyer with a skylight on top and a curved glass staircase. The residence is given an air of relaxed sophistication by architectural details such as herringbone wood flooring, vaulted ceilings, and gallery walls.

There is a formal living room with an elevated wet bar, as well as a wine room that is adjacent to a formal dining room and shares a big wall aquarium with the dining room. Within the 10,369 square feet of interior space are a total of eight bedrooms as well as nine bathrooms.

A second wing of the house was created specifically for hosting guests, and it includes a movie room, a game room, and an enclosed sunroom. In addition to that, there is a gym and a dry sauna.

Outside, the expansive grounds of over three acres are centered on a large stone patio that leads into a swimming pool and spa that has a waterfall element. Steps may be found leading down from the pool area to a tennis court that is lit up.

The listing agents for the property are Sally Forster Jones and Dan Weiser, both of the John Aaroe Group.
