Chris Paul is saying goodbye to sunny southern California. The basketball star, who was traded to the Houston Rockets last year, just sold his sprawling six-bed, ten-bath estate in The Oaks of Calabasas for $11.05 million. He even managed to make some dough on the sale, since he bought the home back in 2015 for $8.995 million. That’s what we call ballin’ on and off the court.
The expansive villa is a taste of Italy right in Calabasas. Measuring 11,000 square feet, the Mediterranean-style estate was built in 2006 on a stunning lot overlooking the canyons and mountains. Step inside to the main living area, where beam-accented ceilings cascade overhead. In the grand chef’s kitchen, professional-style appliances and a pizza oven complement a large granite island, while the elegant formal dining room with its own refrigerated wine closet is just steps away. A master bedroom feels like a resort in its own right, thanks to a private courtyard, spa-like bath quarters, and four boutique-worthy walk-in closets. A home theater is ideal for entertaining guests, as are the multiple patio areas with plentiful seating. Outside, rolling lawns, a full basketball quart, pool, spa, and fountains accompany a covered patio, outdoor barbecue island, and fire pit. There’s also a guest house, in case one of your many guests wants to stay even longer. (And who wouldn’t, with this spread?)
Chris has played the real estate market all over the Los Angeles area. Last year, he listed his home in Woodland Hills, CA for $2.195 million, and before that he lived in a luxe home in Bel Air. (Fun fact: he purchased that home from Canadian pop-rocker Avril Lavigne, who bought it from Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.) Chris owns an equally as lavish home in the Lonestar State: His 18,717-square-foot home in The Woodlands, TX is currently on the market for $6.475 million.
