Go Abode & Beyond

Whether you have mile-high aspirations or aspire to live a mile high, S.D.'s booming real estate market, awe-inspiring new buildings and amenities to match serve both camps.
It's a sportsman's paradise, but you'd get a great workout just by walking this sprawling estate.

Home Court Advantage
Perhaps you’d like to invite 200 friends to watch your doubles match. This unique home was built for sports fanatics.

This 15,000-square-foot estate is loaded with enough sports amenities to rival any gym: There’s a fully lit professional tennis court and two basketball courts with viewer seating for 200, as well as a swimming pool, spa, full gym, dry-heat sauna and shuffleboard court. But it’s the bragging rights that come with the eight-bedroom, 10-bath home that truly take it over the top: Guests have included everyone from Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan to Larry King and Frank Sinatra. Sports legends Wilt Chamberlain, Rod Laver and Ilie Nastase have all played at the home, currently owned by Dr. Leonard Bloom, the sports and entertainment insider who once owned the San Diego Conquistadors. Bloom transformed the home to accommodate large-scale entertaining with its movie theater with full-service bar, as well as an atrium room with seating for 100. Another 50 people can occupy a massive exterior balcony that runs the length of the main house, while an entire upper floor is dedicated to a sprawling master suite accessible by either circular staircase or elevator. $14.5 million, Sandra Hardcastle-Taylor, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage
