First offered at $25 million, the house at 44 Beverly Park Circle is now down to $23.5 million. Although Bonds spent the bulk of his MLB career with the San Francisco Giants, he preferred a L.A. home base, buying the enormous estate in 2002 for $8.7 million, according to property records.
Like Bonds, the home has a presence, sprawling more than 17,000 square feet on a 1.85-acre lot. A circular motor court leads to the Italian-style home's entrance. An ornate entryway opens with 30-foot ceilings and hand-painted Trompe L'oeil murals. Venetian plaster walls and imported limestone and Italian Travertine flooring continue into the main living areas.
Outside there isn't a baseball diamond, but a 2,100-square-foot sports court, pool and loggia with outdoor kitchen. A two-story guesthouse rounds out the rest of the grounds.
A star baseball player from the moment he began playing, Bonds broke several records during his time with the Giants. However, allegations of drug use and a recent denial to the Baseball Hall of Fame during his first year of eligibility have marred the slugger's reputation.
Wondering what it would take to pay for Bonds' colossal casa? Using the Zillow mortgage calculator, the monthly payment is estimated to be $93,345, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year fixed mortgage.
