Inside Sugar Ray Leonard’s Serene Los Angeles Megamansion

Sugar Ray Leonard has shaved the price of his supersized Tuscan-style Los Angeles villa, which has a serene setting and scenic views.

The Florentine-style mansion has a romantic, period look and lies in the affluent coastal neighborhood of Pacific Palisades, close to beaches. The welterweight champion and his wife Bernadette Robi first listed their property in 2019 for $51.995 million with another agent. In the fall, they relisted it for $7 million under its original asking price.

The couple bought the sprawling pink stucco property, which has 1950s origins, in 1993. They rebuilt it in the late 1990s with architect Richard Landry—known for building celebrity mansions—to emulate old-world Italian architecture, with impressive, imported stone and custom timber features. Now with their children grown up and no longer at home, they are looking to downsize, according to the selling agent.

The hillside Los Angeles compound has a sprawling layout and 1.7 acres of private grounds, mostly formed of manicured lawns. It is arranged with wings for entertaining on a grand scale and cozier living spaces for family living. The mansion’s highlights include its chef’s kitchen, a two-story galleried family room and a cloistered living room, which has an almost open-air feel.

Located in the upper Riviera enclave of Pacific Palisades, its indoor-outdoor design makes the most of its tranquil grounds. Many of its arched glass doors adjoin terraces and balconies. The mansion is backdropped by the Santa Monica Mountains and has glimpses of the Pacific Ocean.

Rooms in the Italianate mansion have high ceilings embellished with bespoke wooden ceiling beams and wrought-iron detailing, as well as elegant stone fireplaces, columns, floor tiles and an entrance hall water fountain. Its primary bedroom, meanwhile, has a resort-style bath and several ocean view balconies.

Mr. Leonard was the first boxer ever to win over $100 million in purses during his 20-year professional sporting career. He famously won five world championship titles in his 1980s heyday.

“Sugar Ray is one of the great boxers of all time, and it’s an honor to represent his family home,” said Aaron Kirman of Aaron Kirman Group at Christie’s International Real Estate. He added that the “compound is completely private, yet perfect for entertaining throughout the year.”

The 16,773-square-foot, three-story house has eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and a range of living spaces, including a formal dining room, plus a guest house. It stands on 1.7 acres.


There’s a cinema room and a wine cellar. And beside the stone-surround pool is a two-story, Italian-style pool house, or guest house, and a cabana, which offers poolside shade in the hotter months. The grounds also have a walled tennis court and an outdoor practice putting green.

Neighborhood Notes

The Amalfi Road house lies in the upper Riviera neighborhood of Pacific Palisades, which has the Riviera Country Club that has tennis courts and a championship golf course.

This picturesque coastal region has historically been home to many celebrities and features dramatic scenery covering parts of the Santa Monica Mountains, and winding streets, some of which are named after locations in Italy. It is minutes from the Pacific Coast Highway and coastal beaches.
