Tennis star Anna Kournikova’s 6,600-square-foot house in Miami Beach has volleyed onto the market with a price tag of $9.4 million.
The waterfront home on high-end Sunset Island has seven bedrooms. Typical of Sunset Island homes, great emphasis is placed on what’s outside, which in this case is a heated pool and spa surrounded by a coral rock pool deck, a covered entertainment area, and an outdoor kitchen including barbecue. There is also a large dock on 156 feet of waterfront on Sunset Lake and a lush landscaping plan built around the large Royal Palms that surround the property.
(See photos after the jump.) The ivy-covered Mediterranean was built in 2000 and has French doors that lead out, hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings, arched windows, formal dining room and living room with a fireplace and a kitchen island with granite countertops. The property has a two-story guest house with a separate living space and kitchen on the first floor, and spacious suite on the second floor.
Kournikova, with Martina Hingis as her partner — the Spice Girls of tennis — won Grand Slam titles in 1999 and 2002.
The Russian-born tennis star has garnered attention for not just her play, but her stunning good looks and personal life as well. For years after her curtailment from the professional circuit, her name remained one of Google’s most popular search terms.
The property is listed by Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg, who partner under the name “The Jills” for Coldwell Banker Miami Beach.
