Tennis legend Pete Sampras and his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, have quietly sold their Lake Sherwood-area compound near Thousand Oaks in an off-market deal. The purchase price was not disclosed.
The hilltop estate had been listed at $19.95 million but was not on the market at the time of the sale.
The gated contemporary sits on 20 acres with 360-degree views, a north-south tennis court and a swimming pool. The more than 13,000-square-foot main house has a combined theater and game room plus a separate poker room.

Tesla chief can walk there
Elon Musk, who heads electric-car company Tesla Motors, has shelled out $6.75 million on the former Gene Wilder estate in Bel-Air.
The sellers are financier Paul Kessler and his wife, attorney and businesswoman Diana Derycz-Kessler, who invest in real estate.
The promontory home on three-quarters of an acre, overlooking the 13th green and 14th fairway of the Bel-Air Country Club, was described in the listing as an "opportunity to develop a view property." The existing ranch-style home of 2,800 square feet has three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. There's also a kidney-shaped swimming pool and a guest cottage.
This is not Musk's first venture into the desirable neighborhood. The billionaire entrepreneur and inventor earlier paid $17 million for a 20,248-square-foot mansion across the street.
Musk, 42, is also chief executive of rocket maker SpaceX. He co-founded the Internet payment company that would become PayPal.
Wilder, 80, is known for his roles in such Mel Brooks films as "Young Frankenstein" and "Blazing Saddles."
Drew Mandile and Brooke Knapp of Sotheby's International Realty handled the transaction.
Modern family, vintage home
Jesse Tyler Ferguson must not be too concerned about anyone discovering his recent purchase of a home in Los Feliz for $4.55 million. The "Modern Family" actor has already invited the neighbors over to get acquainted and show off the Spanish Colonial Revival house.
Built in 1928, the renovated home features a two-story entry, 25-foot cathedral ceilings in the living room, four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and nearly 5,000 square feet of living space.
Period details include stained glass, wall nooks, interior arches and wrought-iron work.
Colorful tile fountains, a swimming pool, a cabana and an outdoor fireplace are among features of the more than half-acre lot.
