According to the NBC Sports Network, Bonds originally purchased the European-style mansion in 2002, which was designed like a Tuscan villa . However, he put the property on the market in 2013. Although he bought the property for $8.7 million, he listed it for $25 million because of renovations he made.

Back in 2020, Hollywood celebrity couple Joe Manganiello and Sofia Vergara bought the property for a whopping $26 million.

Bond decided to list his property at a higher price because he added a huge 5,500 sq ft. As such, the property was upgraded to 17,100 square feet in a gated community.

When the site was sold in 2013, he originally wanted $25 million. But got $22 million that year in December.

Thus, the Italianate estate fulfilled a great deal of its former needs. The celebrity couple, worth $220 million, combined their financial resources to pay the pricey sum.
