Tennis star Sebastien Grosjean has listed an eight-bedroom mansion he owns in Boca Raton, Fla. for $2,790,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the tennis star and Marseille, France native's listing of the mansion, which was built in 1995.
Trying to wrap one's arms around the exact square footage of Grosjean's house is a tall order indeed. Zillow.com says it's 6,680 square feet large, while some other public records say it measures 5,882 square feet of *living* space, 7,258 square feet of *effective living* space, and 8,580 square feet of "total" living space, however those distinctions are defined. On top of all of that, Realtor.com's listing of the mansion says that the house measures 9,380 square feet. Go figure.
Built in 1995, Grosjean's mansion has a ground-floor master suite with a bidet, six and a half baths, and a guest wing, according to public records and listing information. Outdoor features on the gated, 0.67-acre (29,185-square-foot) property include an oversized heated pool and spa, a four-car garage, and a porte-cochere, according to public records and listing information.
Records show that Grosjean paid $2,220,000 for the house in late 2004.
Grosjean's listing agent Stephan Meyer told us that Grosjean is selling this house to buy a house somewhere else, but citing client confidentiality reasons, Meyer would not divulge the location of Grosjean's next home. We would note that Grosjean separately paid just $140,000 in early 2008 to purchase a town home in the Le Village de Provence development in Delray Beach, Fla. that previously had been owned by someone who had lost it in a foreclosure, according to public records.
Grosjean also has owned a trio of other Florida properties over the years, including:
--A 1,687-square-foot townhouse at 5060 Pointe Emerald Lane in the Fairfield of Boca development in Boca Raton, which he appears to no longer own;
--A 600-square-foot condominium unit at 9430 Boca Cove Circle in the Boca Cove development in Boca Raton (Unit #215), which he sold in early 2003 for $57,000, according to public records;
--Just down the block (two doors down) from the house that he is now selling, a 5,589-square-foot mansion that Grosjean purchased in 2002 for $1,795,000 and sold in early 2005 for $1,790,000, according to public records.
