|It’s a case of real estate love, which is far better than “love” in tennis.
Tennis star John McEnroe, best known for winning seven Grand Slam titles, has bought a Malibu home just six miles from his other Malibu residence, Real Estalker blog first reported.
His new beachy digs is a California ranch-style home on 1.5-acres off the Pacific Coast Highway. The home does not sit right on the beach — which makes sense considering McEnroe and wife Patty Smyth paid just $3.345 million — but reportedly does come with deeded access to one of Malibu’s most desirable beaches.
According to the listing, the 1960s-built home offers 2,800 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. An open floor plan leads from an updated, gourmet kitchen to a great room with vaulted ceilings. Outdoor living spaces include a kitchen and firepit.
It’s hard to say what McEnroe will do with his other Malibu home, just a few miles down the road. He could keep it as a rental or try to hop on the sellers’ market.
