Talk about a slam dunk! Basketball star Lebron James didn’t even have to set foot on the court to win his latest prize- he just had to drop $23 million. The NBA champ just purchased an eight-bed, eleven-bath mansion in the tony Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood, and it’s safe to say the luxurious property is perfect for a baller like Lebron.
With stunning views stretching from Downtown Los Angeles all the way to the ocean, Lebron’s new digs were just constructed in 2017. Tucked behind gates up a long driveway, the traditional-style home is a masterpiece of light and design. Step inside to the soaring great room and custom chef’s kitchen, where natural French oak and marble floors reclaimed from Spain create the ultimate sense of luxury. Upstairs, there are four en suite bedrooms, including the luxurious master suite with dual bathrooms, showroom-level walk-in closets, and a private patio. In case Lebron wants to preserve his leg muscles, a rooftop terrace has direct elevator access. A spacious day-lit lower level features a theater room, wine cellar, cigar room (with air purifying technology!) and an onyx bar. There’s also an auto gallery, because true ballers have no need for normal garages. A guest suite and an indoor/outdoor gym connect to a spa with a steam room, sauna, shower, and massage room. Sliding pocket doors off the main level create an indoor/outdoor flow to a stunning backyard with a rolling grass yard, oversized pool and spa, as well as a heated dining loggia and outdoor kitchen with a BBQ and beer taps.
In typical NBA star style, Lebron maintains more than one property. In fact, Lebron’s estate in Akron, Ohio nearly takes up half the state. He previously owned a $17 million mansion in Miami when he was still playing for the Heat, but sold it in 2014. And of course, he still owns a second Brentwood property: a $20 million estate he snagged just two years ago.
