Tennis legends Andre Agassi and Steff Graf — they have 30 Grand Slam wins between them and a combined prize money haul of more than $50 million, not counting endorsements — have volleyed one of the handful of high-end residential properties they own in hot-as-Hades Las Vegas, Nev., on to the open market with an asking price just shy of $2.4 million.
For the last decade or so, the preternaturally talented and long retired racket swingers have resided in a more-than-9,000-square-foot mansion in northwest Las Vegas, but since 1990 Agassi has owned another significantly smaller residence about 8.5 miles south, in the guard-gated Spanish Hills development, the very same luxury enclave where Nicolas Cage once owned a huge house he lost to foreclosure in 2009. A classically suburban 1990s version of a Mediterranean villa with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, the not-quite-4,600-square-foot two-story home had long been occupied by Agassi’s father and former coach Mike Agassi and his mother Betty.
Grandly fronted by a porte cochère, the immaculately maintained yet decidedly dated interiors feature polished pale beige tile floors and unconventionally shaped rooms that sport glitzy brass and glass light fixtures and plantation-style shutters over the windows. A three-sided fireplace sheathed in white marble delineates the double-height living area from the dining space that’s just inside the front door, while the center-island kitchen flows into a breakfast bay and step-down family room complete with an asymmetrically designed fireplace and a small glassed-in greenhouse.
Each of the three main floor guest bedrooms has direct access to a bathroom, while the primary bedroom occupies the entire second floor with a walk-in closet, grey marble bathroom and a balcony that overlooks the swimming pool and sunken tennis court where, per listings held by the Ivan Sher Group at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties, Agassi trained during his professional career. Indeed, the neighboring home is owned by Agassi’s longtime fitness trainer Gil Reyes, and there’s a huge gym alongside the tennis court, though that piece of the tennis-centric estate does not appear to be part of the current offering.
Most of the handful of homes Agassi and Graff own in Las Vegas appear to be occupied by family members, but their aforementioned primary residence in Sin City, which they picked up in 2011 for $3.15 million — it’s just down the street from Floyd Mayweather’s showy $10 million estate with its 40-car subterranean garage, is a 9,000-square-foot mansion that overlooks the once unnaturally lush but now defunct and mired in lawsuits Badlands golf course.
