The economic downturn did little to affect the bottom line for the 1%, even those under house arrest. Over his career Barry Bonds made over $180M in salary alone and he's showing himself to be a smart businessman with those funds after his career has ended.
While his trial for evasive testimony resulted in a 30-day house arrest, it wasn't as though Bonds was slumming it in his giant Beverly Hills mansion. Now though that erstwhile prison could be your new digs!
After buying the mansion in 2002 for a mere $8.7M, Barry has relisted the 1.85 acre property which features seven bedrooms and thirteen bathrooms over 17,100 square feet at a robust $25 million.
The home comes with all the essentials for living in exclusion from society including a music room, theater, wine room, gym, spa, elevator, outdoor pizza oven and deep fryer, and a separate guest house for when the warden wants to stop in. Plus the house comes fully furnished which is especially good news if you're into gaudy, ostentatious gold beds.
You can rest your head where Barry used to fart!
