Photo and video tour of the new possessions of the richest Russian sportswoman.

Five-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one Maria Sharapova has been living in the suburbs of Los Angeles for many years, where she finished building her Japanese-style house a year ago. And now the richest Russian athlete, according to various versions of Forbes, has bought for $ 8.6 million a country ranch overlooking the ocean near the California town of Santa Barbara, so well known to our viewers. We suggest taking a photo and video tour of the tennis player's new possessions.

Sharapova completed her American Dream House. There is even a bowling alley! And now she does not hesitate to show everything that is inside. According to Variety, a new record has appeared in the California property register that Maria Sharapova acquired a 5-acre country ranch near Santa Barbara. This is about 2 hectares or 200 acres in a dimension that is understandable to Russian summer residents. The ranch has three separate buildings. The main house is decorated in Balinese style with exposed wood ceilings, a bedroom, bathroom, other living areas and a beautiful stone deck overlooking the ocean.

A separate studio hidden by a dense cover of lush foliage adjoins the house, which can become a personal office and workshop for the artist.

It is worth recalling that Sharapova's boyfriend, British businessman Alex Gilkes, is investing in art and antiques. He is familiar with many artists, designers, representatives of various areas of the art business. Perhaps this studio is just for Alex.

The second building is a guest house with a two-part Dutch-style entrance door and a back door that leads to a spacious stone patio. There, after walking along a hilly lawn, you can go down the mountain directly to the beach.

The third room is the caretaker's cottage. It adjoins a stable with five stalls and additional riding facilities.

In addition to buildings, the ranch has a special barbecue area, a garden with roses, lavender and jasmine, even a bamboo grove that looks more like a tropical jungle.

The ranch has a lot of open lawns. Here Sharapova, who announced her retirement from her sports career in February 2020, can successfully practice yoga, boxing, and do stretching exercises, or, if necessary, build a tennis court.

Santa Barbara, like the surrounding communities, has long suffered from drought, so Sharapova will undoubtedly appreciate the 15,000 gallon private water well - almost 57,000 liters.

According to the real estate registers, Maria bought this ranch with all the gardens, buildings and interior decoration for $ 8.6 million. For a Russian tennis player, this amount is quite feasible, since, according to Forbes' estimates, Sharapova earned $ 325 million in her tennis career. Moreover, the prize money was only $ 38,777,962, and the rest was made up of advertising and professional contracts.

In 2012, a Russian woman invested $ 500,000 in her brand of sweets, Sugarpova. Now Maria is actively involved in investing in the fitness industry. In March 2020, Sharapova invested in a startup for the production of weighting fitness bracelets Bala Bangles, and in August became an investor and chief advisor to Therabody, which produces massagers and other gadgets for body care.
