If there was a Hall of Fame for real estate, Barry Bonds' Beverly Hills
home would be the winner. (Good for him, since Bonds himself was denied entry to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame
.) The record-setting MVP has put his enormous 17,100-square-foot mansion on the market for $25 million, The Wall Street Journal reported
. And it's one of the most amazing things we've ever seen.
Interesting timing, too. Bonds is due in court in less than a month to appeal his obstruction of justice conviction from his doping trial. He was sentenced to 30 days of house arrest
, which has been stayed pending his appeal. But should he lose, why wouldn't he want to spend his sentence in his massive, luxurious home? We'd serve life in it.
The colossal estate is a home run: The seven-bedroom, 13-bathroom home sits on 1.85 acres and boasts a music room, theater, wine room, gym, spa and elevator. There's also a pool, a basketball court, a guesthouse and a six-car garage for all his fancy whips. Oh, those boys and their toys.
The best part? The home has "smart home" technology, making it controllable from the click of an iPad. Bonds reportedly purchased the property back in 2002 for $8.7 million and has since expanded the side of the home by more than 5,500 square feet.
