Donovan is a soccer icon on the West Coast after his exploits with the L.A. Galaxy. He remains one of the most important players in USMNT history. Meanwhile, his profile and success helped him to achieve a lot of wealth. Donovan bought some luxurious homes including this Manhattan Beach gem.
The forward enjoyed life in this five-million-dollar compound during his heyday. It feels like a little slice of paradise with one of the best gardens on this list. The pool and surrounding greenery create a private Eden for the residents. Amazingly, Donovan recently sold this divine property (via Los Angeles Times).
