The home features ocean and canyon views and a see-through fireplace that connects the master bedroom and office/den.
Ten-time Olympic medal winner Carl Lewis has sold his Pacific Palisades home for $2.5 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.
The contemporary Mediterranean, built in 1991, is on nearly a third of an acre with ocean and canyon views, a swimming pool and spa, a fish pond, a gazebo and fruit trees. A see-through fireplace connects the master bedroom with an attached area that can be used as an office or a den. There are four bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms and 5,307 square feet of living space.
Lewis, 49, won nine Olympic gold medals and one silver in track and field in his heydey from the late ’70s to mid-’90s. The sprinter and long jumper had purchased the house in 2002 for $1.75 million. It had been on the market since January.
Edna Gyepes of Coldwell Banker, Pacific Palisades, and Lorene Roberts of Palisades Realty had the listing. Gyepes and Blanca Chavoya, also of Coldwell Banker, Pacific Palisades, represented the buyer.
