Barry Bonds – Two Properties and Two Different Styles
For Barry Bonds, we’re hitting economical homeruns here, peeking into two mansions the former slugger once called home. His first estate, located in Hillsborough, an upscale suburban area of San Francisco, was on the market for a sensible $6.6 million.
A modest 5 bed room Mediterranean-style estate, Bonds’ digs included 2 excellent cooking areas, beautiful exposed-wooden beams to accentuate his high ceilings, and lovely arched doorways.
It appears that the guy who clubbed a (tainted) record 762 crowning achievement had a taste for the finer things in life. But his former Beverly Hills-area mansion is really magnificent, nearly more so than the unthinkable modification in head sizes Bonds went through from his rookie season to his last.
Listed at $33 million, this house elicits picturesque imagery of the rolling hills of central Italy. With a terracotta red-roof, massive archways and terraces, iron gates, and genuine frescos lining the interior walls, one would think they’ve been teleported to the Tuscany region in Italy when stepping foot on his home. Sticking to the Italian style, his home theater is fitted with red-velvet curtains and the home’s floorings are consisted of special, imported Italian stone.
To keep the slugger captivated, Bonds has two custom fish tanks in his living space. He also had a backyard that is huge enough to field a baseball group loaded with his good friends from the steroid period. Keeping up with everybody else’s mansion, Bonds’ 7 bedroom and 13 bathroom has a pool table and many game games.
