A Gold Coast estate once owned by tennis great John McEnroe is on the market for $6.8 million, according to Newsday.

McEnroe owned the five-building estate in Cove Neck from 1982 until 2000, when he sold it to record producer Ric Wake. The now-retired tennis star lived there for a time with his former wife, the actress Tatum O’Neal. McEnroe had perhaps the most dominant year in tennis history in 1984, but only two years later took a leave from the sport to regain his bearings.

The current owner bought the property in 2010 and put more than $1 million into renovations, according to listing agent Mike Pesce of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

The estate was developed in 1912 for silent film director and producer James S. Blackton.

The main residence spans 10,000 square feet and includes an elevator, gym, sauna and wine cellar.

Another building houses a ballroom, wet bar and 12-seat movie theater. The pool house is something of a guest house itself. There is also a one-bedroom cottage and a carriage house with three bedrooms. [Newsday] — Dennis Lynch
