Pro wrestler Bill Goldberg’s “Eagle’s Nest”

The float salt pod just looks like a big egg

Never mind the on-site wellness center, check out this water slide! Whoo-hoo!
Never mind the on-site wellness center, check out this water slide! Whoo-hoo!

Obsessive football fans might recall a defensive tackle named Bill Goldberg who bounced around the NFL in the early 1990s, with a stint for the Sacramento Gold Miners (a Canadian Football League team undertaking an ill-fated attempt at US expansion) sandwiched in between. He’s probably more famous, however, as simply Goldberg — a professional wrestler whose career stretches across the past three decades. Anyway, the Zillow listing for the house we’re going to look at this week wants you to know that he used to live here.

“The Eagle’s Nest is comprised of two incredible properties on 25+ acres, nestled on its own side of the mountain with incredible views, 15 miles of horse trails, a year-round creek, 40 oak trees all within its own enclosed private gates,” opens the sales pitch for 7082 Eagle Mountain Road, a 4630-square-foot mansion in Bonsall, a few miles from San Diego County’s northern border. Let’s have a look around, shall we?

It’s a kitchen island the way Australia is an ocean island.

The front is nice enough: it’s a typical modern Southern California home with plain stucco, tile roof, and a large driveway; some mature palm trees accented by spotlights flank the formal entry. But before we go inside, we’re taken around back to the pool, where a very large (for a private house, at least) water slide drops maybe 30 feet from patio level to the pool deck below. Ten-year-old me would’ve loved this. The listing also wants us to know that the spa comes with “its own hiding TV that comes up with a push of a button.” Even better.

Next we see a very large doghouse, equipped with a caged-in porch (the listing calls this an “enclosed dog hotel”) and what appears to be another television that pops out of a bench near an outdoor cooking area. There’s an interestingly-shaped firepit in the foreground, but for some reason, no patio furniture for either lounging or dining is to be found anywhere.

Finally, we make it to the double front doors, embossed with giant horses that are rearing back. Not the first impression I’d expect from a house named Eagle’s Nest, but okay. We’re moving on and heading in. Once inside, distressed-looking wood floors (probably not really that old, since the house was just built in 1997 and has since been “completely renovated to the highest level of perfection”) lead us through the foyer into a living room, which comes complete with wet bar and a wall partially covered with what look like wood planks but which are also are maybe tiles? There’s a small fireplace, another enormous TV, a sectional couch, and not much else in here — though it looks like there’s a pool table and that fortune-telling machine that turns the kid into Tom Hanks in the movie Big in the next room.

The kitchen here is very large and very white. There is some gray on the walls and some more swirling along the white marble countertops, but otherwise, this is a very sterile space. I would still love to have the enormous cooktop, however, and the oddly-shaped center island with bar seating is appealing.

We get another fireplace dwarfed by another television in the dining room, and yet another in the office space, though the TV here isn’t quite as huge. It isn’t until we get to the main bedroom suite that there’s actual art hanging above the mantle of what is, by my count, the fifth fire we’ve seen burning so far. With the gray walls, gray floor, gray stone, and recessed lighting, this room feels rather industrial, though it is spacious, and I do like the standalone black soaking tub in the bathroom.

There are another couple of rooms that have nothing in them save for more wall-mounted big screens, and some more perfectly adequate bathrooms. Then we’re back outside for some aerials and more shots of the grounds, which include a “basketball half court, small livestock enclosures, [and] many different fruit trees all located along a private road.”

Our tour is almost over by the time we get to the second structure on the property, which was built as a house but has since been “converted to a state of the art wellness center which includes a five-car garage, full gym with white epoxy flooring, two infrared saunas with an oxygen machine filtered into them, a float salt pod, four Himalayan salt walls where the professional dance floor resides, a professional MMA room, and a mind blowing steam shower that was created with Amethyst healing stone walls.” We get some pictures of a gym with the sauna units tucked off to one side, and a glimpse of what looks like a room with a wood floor that could be used for dancing. The walls, however, don’t appear to be made of salt, which is something I was really interested in seeing. Maybe this is really the MMA room — though I don’t see an octagon, or anything else that makes any of the rooms particularly conducive to fighting. The float salt pod just looks like a big egg sitting next to a wet bar in an empty room, and is also less exciting than I’d hoped. As for the healing stone shower, we don’t even get to see it.

Eagle’s Nest last sold in 2020 for a reported $2.9 million, when Viviana and Samantha Montalvao purchased it from Goldberg. After the remodel, it was listed in early October with an asking price of $12 million that remains unchanged to date. If you should acquire this house, please send me pictures of the salt room and let me know how the healing shower goes.
