A boxing legend is rolling with the punches at a site near Las Vegas that will house his new home, snagging a front row seat to the construction process.
Oscar de la Hoya bought a special home in Henderson, Nevada for $14.6 million, Dirt reported. The property is part of a luxury community that Blue Heron is building in MacDonald Heights.
The modern home will have over 10,000 square feet of living space. The one-story home will contain five bedrooms, five bathrooms and an eight-car garage. There will also be two water features, one at the entrance to the house and one inside the property.
Renderings showed a wine cellar, bar, office, gym, guest wing, and media and entertainment room for the property. There will be a butler’s kitchen in addition to the main kitchen. The main retreat will include a spa bath, private garden veranda and outdoor shower.
The exterior will include a pool and spa, wet deck, fire lounges, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor lounge with televisions.
The house should be completed next year. Corcoran Global Living Partner Kristen Routh-Silberman held the list.
Buying De La Hoya was more expensive than a 15-year-old property deal further west. In 2007, De La Hoya paid $11.5 million for an 11,000 square foot mansion in Pasadena, California.
The 49-year-old ‘Golden Boy’ was a top fighter during his boxing career, which spanned from 1992 to 2008. He went 39-6 during his career, including 30 wins by KO. He also won a gold medal for the United States at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.
De La Hoya founded Golden Boy Promotions in 2002 and has spent most of his time as a boxing promoter since retiring. Last year, he also participated in “The Masked Singer”.
