LA Fitness CEO Louis Welch is selling his mansion in the ultra-exclusive Madison Club in La Quinta, CA, for $10,750,000.
Extremely private, posh, and conveniently located in the Coachella Valley, the Madison country club attracts the rich and famous to the area and even includes the Kardashian-Jenner clan among its residents.
Welch’s mansion sits on a full acre, with views of the third hole of the club’s golf course designed by Tom Fazio. The five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom home of over 10,000 square feet home is loaded with everything a wealthy buyer would want in a tranquil desert retreat.
A serene outdoor courtyard welcomes guests into a peaceful space, complete with a water feature. Inside, pocket doors open to blend the indoors and outdoors, providing a wide-open space for entertaining, whether in the great room, home theater, or outdoor areas. Outside there’s a pool, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen.
Of course, Welch didn’t skimp on the fitness space, which is currently outfitted with everything an exercise lover could need to keep in top form. There’s a sauna next to the gym for post-workout relaxation.
Built in 2010 by the architect Kristi Hanson, the structure blends in with the beauty of the surrounding desert, while carving out an extraordinary space for working and living in style.
Welch has a lot of experience dealing in A-list real estate. He reportedly sold an NYC Walker Tower penthouse for $45 million in 2016, just two years after buying it for $40 million. In 2017, he paid cash for a $20 million condo in the residences offered on the upper floors of the five-star Montage Beverly Hills hotel.
Welch is the co-CEO of Fitness International, which operates more than 650 LA Fitness clubs across the United States and Canada. Welch is also a skilled golfer who has won several prestigious amateur tournaments, according to his biography.
