Southern California has many beautiful homes available on the market, but some homes come complete with far more interesting stories than others. Among these are homes owned by fallen athletes and renowned architects as well as those with a quirky style and design.

Slava Voynov’s Redondo Beach Home

Former Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov has put his four-bedroom, six-bathroom Redondo Beach home on the market for $2.89 million. Designed by Michael Lee Architects and built in 2013, the contemporary-style home features floor-to-ceiling glass, custom lighting, wide plank wood floors, an open-plan kitchen, a formal dining room, a tequila room with LED lighting, a media room and indoor-outdoor living areas. Outdoor features complimenting the 4,020-square-foot home include wraparound balconies, a side courtyard and a swimming pool. Voynov, who reportedly paid $2.6 million for the home when he purchased it last year, recently returned to his native Russia as he faced possible deportation due to domestic violence charges.
