Location: Sun Valley, Idaho
Price: $5,900,000
The Skinny: When Swedish tennis champ Mats Wilander and his wife discovered that Idaho's mountain air would help assuage their son's skin condition, the couple purchased an 81-acre ranch and moved the family from Greenwich, Conn. to one of the country's oldest ski areas, Sun Valley. Wilander, who gained notoriety as a commentator after saying Federer had "no balls" in a 2006 defeat to Nadal, built this 10,000-square-foot, seven-bed, 8.5-bath mansion on the property, along with a two-bed guest house and a caretaker's residence. Remarkably, there doesn't seem to be a tennis court on the property, though a sauna, billiards room, gym, sound proof music room, wine cellar, hot tub, and lap pool are all included in the $6M price. That's quite a hike from the $1.7M the tennis star paid for the property, but that was 15 years ago.
