Retired tennis star Chris Evert is offering an unusual incentive to the buyer of her estate just west of Boca Raton: a private tennis lesson.

Evert, who retired from professional tennis in 1989, listed the property for sale in spring with an asking price of $4.99 million.

She may not turn an amateur tennis player into a professional in one lesson, but Evert has plenty of winning experience to share: She won 18 Grand Slam singles championships and was the top-ranked female tennis player in the world over a seven-year period.

Built in 1995, her residence at 8563 Horseshoe Lane in southwest Palm Beach County spans more than five acres and includes a main house with six bedrooms and two one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest houses.

The combined size of the main house and guest houses is 12,296 square feet.

Evert, who has vacated the property, bought it for $2.8 million in 2003, when she was married to Olympic skier Andy Mill.

The retired tennis star raised her three sons at the estate, which features a tennis court (naturally), a swimming pool and a nine-car garage.
