Inside The Luxurious Home Of Andrew Whitworth From The L.A. Rams

As Andrew Whitworth gears up for Super Bowl LVI this Sunday, we thought to give you a glimpse inside his $6 million mansion in the affluent Thousand Oaks area of Westlake Village, Southern California. The offensive left tackle for the Los Angeles Rams and his wife, Melissa, an award-winning Louisiana reporter, scored the traditional Cape-Cod-inspired property in the summer of 2019, according to Dirt.

Even though the sprawling eight beds and nine baths modern house was built in 1996, records show that it has only changed ownership four times. It was, for over two decades, owned by a non-famous couple who sold it to a local businesswoman for $4 million in 2018. Just four months later, the mostly single-story mansion moved on for $5.3 million to a local developer. The developer went on to sell to the Whitworths, but not before giving the interior an enviable, contemporary décor upgrade, warranting the $6.05 million price tag.

What you need to know about the location

The 10,090 square feet property sits on a one-acre flat cornered lot in the opulent, guard-gated community of Sherwood Country Club. It is an exclusive neighborhood featuring several high-priced L.A. mansions of varying architectural styles in three gated communities for the famous. There is also the well-known Sherwood Lake Club, which is privately owned and not open to the general public and, of course, Sherwood Country Club, where the initiation fee is reported to be $200,000 if you own property in the community, according to Country Club Prices.

The Whitworth estate is about an hour northwest of Los Angeles and less than 20 minutes away from his team's headquarters. Disregarding the poshness of the neighborhood and the mansion's deluxe amenities, we believe the convenient location could have influenced the LSU alum's decision to purchase the property. Andrew Whitworth joins a long list of celebrities, including Kaley Cuoco, Britney Spears, Jamie Foxx, and Tom Selleck, who have moved into the area and surrounding communities.

Inside the luxurious home

Andrew Whitworth's mansion is indeed a luxurious oasis befitting an NFL player who recently scored a victorious new title as the first 40-year-old starting left tackle in NFL history. The main mansion impresses with seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a fireplace-equipped great room inspired by acclaimed interior designer Windsor Smith. Windsor's modern traditionalist signature seeps deeply into the interior design. This is evidenced by the rows of french doors and windows with black, wooden accents set against white ceilings and white walls to create a timeless, glamorous effect.

Following the rules of contemporary design, an elegant yet semi-minimalistic theme runs through the house. There is an open space furniture arrangement, hardwood flooring, and a lovely formal dining room. The latter features a crystal chandelier illuminating a uniquely-designed and polished hardwood table capable of seating 10 guests. We were particularly drawn to the neutral color palette and random artworks of different themes that pepper the interior.

The kitchen, guest house, and beyond

The modern farmhouse kitchen features an eat-in design and large windows offering exquisite garden views. It is equipped with high-end appliances and, sticking to the theme of luxury, Ralph Lauren lighting fixtures. The live-in staff of the Whitworths or out-of-town guests could occupy the guest house, which has its own bedroom suite. They stand to enjoy stunning views of the formal gardens, manicured lawns, and tall hedgerows serving as privacy screens.

The gorgeous rows of french doors in the main house allow easy access to the gardens and facilities. These outdoor amenities include a rectangular swimming pool with a mini inset spa and red brick edging, as well as an outdoor kitchen and basketball court in the backyard. Another facility in the main mansion is a well-lighted library featuring sufficient bookshelves and a fireplace. There's also a finished attic that can be used for entertainment purposes when the Whitworths need a different setting.
