Tennis fans may never be able to hit an accomplished touch volley like John McEnroe. They may never figure out how to hit that corkscrew serve, and they certainly aren’t going to win seven major titles, but as of today they can rent McEnroe’s beach house for the low, low price of $125k per month.
Here’s the details on the place, from Variety:
So, what are you guys waiting for?
Famously and entertainingly hot-headed professional tennis legend John McEnroe lobbed one of his three multimillion dollar homes in the exuberantly expensive California seaside community of Malibu up on the rental market at a knee-buckling $125,000 just for the month of August. Located inside the guarded gates of the fabled Colony enclave, the 1930s Cape Cod-style home was acquired by the seven-time Grand Slam singles title winner in 1984 for an unrecorded amount and marketing materials indicate the three-story house, with five bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms in not quite 3,700-square-feet, is also available as an off-season rental at an undisclosed price.
A secured courtyard separates the garage from the residence that includes ocean-facing living and dining areas, a chef’s kitchen and a media room. A cozy den shares the second floor with two family bedrooms plus an oceanfront master suite with private deck. There’s another bedroom on the third floor with both mountain and coastline views and a fifth en suite bedroom opens to the courtyard. A spacious oceanfront deck accommodates a covered porch, lounging and dining areas, a sunken spa, an elevated sunbathing platform, and a pint-sized cabana with fireplace, wet bar, sauna and bathroom.
