Tennis ace Serena Williams is hoping to net a tidy profit on the sale of her Los Angeles home, which she listed Monday for $11.99 million.
A trust linked to Ms. Williams, 36, bought the six-bedroom house in 2006 for $6.62 million, property records show. If the house sells for its ask, the powerhouse will get a more than 80% return.
What makes the perfect neighbor? How about rich AND generous?

Spanning two-and-a-half acres, the lot is one of the largest in Bel Air’s Stone Canyon, according to the listing with Gregory Piechota of Keller Williams Beverly Hills, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Built in 1935, the house “has since been updated, but still holds a lot of its original charm,” reads the listing. It spans 6,101 square feet and has a formal entry, a semi-circular living room lined large windows, a formal dining room, a bar, a gym and a three-car garage.
Hidden from the street by trees and hedges, the property also has gardens, a pool and private hiking trails. But alas, no tennis court.
Ms. Williams holds the most Grand Slam titles in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles tournaments combined among any active tennis players. A representative for her did not respond to requests for comment.
She is currently on hiatus from tennis following the September birth of her daughter with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
Variety first reported the listing.
