Perhaps Barry Bonds has had enough of the celebrity life and all that comes with it. According to The Wall Street Journal, Bonds recently put his Beverly Hills mansion on the market for a modest price of $25 million. He reportedly purchased the home for $8.7 million back in 2002, so he’ll be tripling his investment if he receives close to the asking price.
A person familiar with the home told the WSJ that it has seven bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a music room, movie theater, wine room, gym and spa. It also has a guest house and pool and sits on 1.85 acres of land.
As we know, Bonds has taken up cycling — no, not that kind of cycle — in his retirement. He was also recently photographed on a beach in Hawaii, so it’s possible he has decided to give up living in Hollywood for a simpler life. Reporters have obviously been very interested in getting ahold of the home run king since he was denied entry to the Hall of Fame last week, so this could be a sign that he is trying to avoid them and keep to himself. At this point, I can’t say I would blame him.Google+
