Pac-Man is land­ing in Bev­erly Hills

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS -

Add a slice of prime Bev­erly Hills real es­tate to Manny Pac­quiao’s score­card.

The wel­ter­weight cham­pion, cur­rently train­ing in Los An­ge­les for his up­com­ing bout against Floyd May­weather Jr., is un­der con­tract to buy a home in the 90210 ZIP Code for about $12.5 mil­lion, The Times has con­firmed.

Set be­hind a gated drive, the es­tate was once home to rap­per-pro­ducer Sean Combs in the early 2000s. A dou­ble-height foyer with a sweep­ing stair­case, flanked by for­mal dining and living room ar­eas, marks the en­trance to the two-story home, built in the French Re­gency style in 1998.

Within the 10,000 square feet of living space is a chef ’s kitchen with a long cen­ter is­land, a home theater with a re­fresh­ment bar and a fam­ily room with an ad­join­ing wet bar. There are seven bed­rooms and 7.5 bath­rooms, in­clud­ing a mas­ter suite with his and hers bath­rooms and cus­tom walk-in clos­ets.

Land­scaped grounds of about a quar­ter of an acre con­tain a large en­ter­tainer’s pa­tio with a fire pit and a pool and spa with a wa­ter fea­ture.

On and off the mar­ket for the last two years, the home was most re­cently priced at $12.495 mil­lion. It pre­vi­ously sold for $4.8 mil­lion in 2012, records show.

Pac­quiao, 36, de­feated a pre­vi­ously un­beaten Ti­mothy Bradley II last year to re­take the World Boxing Or­ga­ni­za­tion wel­ter­weight ti­tle. The Filipino boxer, who holds a 57–5–2 life­time record, will de­fend his ti­tle May 2 against an un­beaten May­weather at the MGM Grand Ho­tel & Casino in Las Ve­gas.
