Wizards power forward Kris Humphries may be Minnesota born and bred, but he clearly has no problem settling down in Beverly Hills.
The NBA player has landed a three-bed, four-bath spread in the SoCal enclave, with views of the city and coastline all the way to Catalina Island. The welcoming 3,336-square-foot home, which was built in 1961, features glass walls that open out to a spacious terrace with an outdoor dining area that includes a built-in barbecue, swimming pool, and spa.
An open floor plan invites guests from the foyer into the large living room. A gourmet kitchen with a center island and skylight is an entertainer’s dream, as is the den with its own wet bar. The luxurious master suite features a fireplace, a spa-style bath, and a walk-in closet. The remaining two bedrooms have en-suite baths, and a home office provides a place to get some work done without heading to the office. Of course, Humphries’ “office” is a basketball court, so maybe he’ll turn it into a shrine for his bevy of basketball shoes.
It’s interesting that Humphries has decided to drop anchor in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s territory, when his basketball career is across the country in Washington, DC. Kardashian also used to own in Beverly Hills, and in fact, that home served as the site of their engagement back in the day.
Of course, we all know how that relationship ended up — Kardashian has moved on to Hidden Hills, CA, with new hubby Kanye West. But if Humphries’ journey to Beverly Hills homeowner intrigues you, then you’ll be glad to know that he’ll be appearing on an upcoming episode of the Bravo hit Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles, where we’ll see how he landed this luxe pad.
And while he may be putting down roots in Beverly Hills (and partying there as well), Humphries may always be a Midwestern boy at heart. He still owns a four-bed, three-bath spread in his hometown of Mound, MN, which he’s owned since 2006, when he snagged it for $1.5 million.
