German professional footballer Leroy Sané has scored a goal of the stylish kind with the $8 million purchase of a Los Angeles pied-à-terre. Last sold for just under $3.6 million in 2020 — and subsequently redone from top to bottom — the resort-like home lies in the Hollywood Hills, and offers three bedrooms and four baths in just over 2,800 square feet of magazine-worthy living space.
Nestled high atop the Sunset Strip, on a nearly half-acre gated parcel laced with palms, the one-story stucco structure greets with a motorcourt and two-car garage. An eye-catching entryway features a large front door, which pivots into creamy-hued, minimalistic interiors punctuated throughout with clay ceilings and walls, wide-plank white oak floors, designer lighting and travertine finishes.
Among the highlights: a fireplace-equipped living room boasting floor-to-ceiling Styline glass doors that slide open completely to provide the quintessential SoCal indoor-outdoor lifestyle. There’s also a small yet sleekly designed kitchen adorned with custom cabinetry, an eat-in island, Miele appliances and a breakfast nook.
Elsewhere is a master suite sporting a sitting area and spacious closet, plus a spa-inspired bath decked out with dual vanities, an oval soaking tub and expansive walk-in shower. Outdoors, the inviting backyard hosts a pool and spa nestled alongside a barbecue center, fire-pit and lounge areas. Adding to the overall appeal: a high-tech Crestron home-automation system.
Now in his mid-20s, Sané has been playing pro soccer — or football, depending on which area of the world you call home — since he was 18, first with Schalke 04 and then Manchester City, where he became the first German to win the “PFA Young Player of the Year” award in 2017-18. Today, he’s a winger for Bayern Munich and the German national team; on a personal note, he’s also the son of former professional footballer Souleymane Sané, and German rhythmic gymnast and 1984 Summer Olympics bronze medalist Regina Weber.
