- Serena Williams has shown off the luxurious house she's been designing and decorating with her sister Venus for the past few years
- The tennis champion gave an inside look of the Miami home through an interview with famed publication Architectural Digest
- Serena's mansion boasts its own gym, sauna, trophy room, wine cellar, infinity pool, karaoke room and an enormous clothing closet
Serena Williams was recently interviewed by Architectural Digest to finally show off the Miami mansion she has been working on for the past few years.
The sports star partnered up with her sister Venus and Venus' world-class design firm, V Starr, to bring her vision of the 14 500-square-foot Florida mansion (which is over 1300 square-metres) to life.
The result was a streamlined, minimalist-but-luxurious house that has all the amenities one could expect in the home of a global tennis champion.
Serena told Architectural Digest about the experience of leaving the home she'd shared with Venus for over 20 years to go build her own one:
"I was moving away from Venus for the first time in my life, so I wanted it to be really meaningful"
Serena and Venus took their legendary partnership from the court to the drawing board and the final version of Serena and hubby Alexis' home is a masterpiece.
The mansion has its own gym and sauna, a private trophy room and a wine cellar. It also boasts an infinity pool, an enormous clothing closet and a karaoke room because of Serena's love of the activity.
One notable absence from the record-breaking tennis player's house is an actual tennis court. When asked about why she had decided to leave it out the star said:
"I wanted to separate home from work. I love being home. When you have our job, you never get time to relax. So it’s good for me to be able to sit still and not do anything."
