Olympic downhill skier Bode Miller just listed his 8,000-square-foot, Tuscan-inspired home in the exclusive Coto De Caza zip code of Orange County, California, for $4.9 million. This has been the gold medalist's primary residence despite its distance from the mountains; Bode also has a house in New Hampshire near Cannon Mountain, which was listed on Airbnb. With Bode recently announcing that he will not be competing on the World Cup this winter, this is just the latest in major life moves for the professional skier. Let's have a look at this Olympic-caliber listing.
Bode's 10-acre property at the top of Los Ranchos Estates boasts 360-degree views of distant mountains and the ocean. The five-bedroom, 6.5-bath house also includes a spacious office and library. The heart of the home is the vast gourmet kitchen, which opens to a great room with indoor-outdoor living via recessed sliding doors opening to the private backyard. Did we mention the six-car garage? Given that both Bode and his pro-volleyball player wife, Morgan Beck, are athletes, we're surprised at the lack of fitness amenities, though the listing does mention having space for horses or tennis courts. Given Bode's increasing interest in horse racing, could it be that he'll be moving closer to his Maryland Fair Hill training center barn?
Bode isn't the only Winter Olympic gold medalist at home in Southern California. Snowboarder Shaun White just purchased a new 4,500-square-foot contemporary house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills.
