Recently retired Alpine ski superstar Lindsey Vonn and professional ice hockey player P.K. Subban went their separate ways late last year after three years of coupledom and a much-publicized 2019 engagement in which she, in a modern twist, proposed to him. It wasn’t long before the sporty former paramours hoisted their snazzy (and recently acquired) pan-European villa in the Beverly Hills Post Office area of L.A. up for sale at $7.175 million, a bit more than the $6.75 million they paid less than a year ago. Subban remains hunkered down in New Jersey, where he pushes the puck for the Devils, while Vonn, the winningest female skiier of all time, has opted to stay put on the Left Coast with the $3.4 million purchase of Shabby Chic-style bachelorette pad in the convenient Coldwater Canyon area of Beverly Hills.
Described in marketing materials as a “designer done traditional,” the slightly more than 3,400-square-foot home is obscured behind mature magnolia trees, secured behind gates and protected by a high-tech security system with numerous cameras. A recent renovation included the installation of European oak floors and designer window treatments and lighting fixtures, along with a new roof and upgraded plumbing, electrical and climate systems.
Vonn’s new neighborhood is rife with high-profile homeowners, and some of the many folks from whom Vonn can send out her assistant to borrow an egg include Barry Diller and Diane Von Furstenberg, Bill Maher, Paul McCartney and powerhouse real estate broker and “Million Dollar Listing” star Fredrik Eklund.
