LeBron James Buys New Los Angeles Home For $21 Million
LeBron James is the best basketball player in the world, and over the years, has come to own some of the most lavish homes of any pro-athlete ever. From his luxurious home in Miami, that he sold earlier this year, to the huge mansion he has in Akron, James has got the best of the best when it comes to his home.
After a busy summer making a movie, a producing role on a hit TV show, and with the rumors of a possible Space Jam 2 being in the works with the King himself, LeBron James has taken another step towards a possible Hollywood career. According to multiple sources, James bought a new mansion out in Brentwood. The area is not far from UCLA and the beaches of Santa Monica.
Variety magazine reported the news first, and also described the house:
The stone and white brick-clad exterior gives way to a voluminous foyer flanked by ample living and dining rooms, both with fireplaces and honey-toned wide-plank wood floors. Less formal family quarters include a cook-friendly kitchen fitted with slab marble back splashes and every high-quality stainless steel appliance known to mankind, a breakfast nook set into a window-lined semicircular bay, and a family room that spills out through a bank of French doors to the backyard. The master bedroom shares a two-way fireplace with a private sitting room, and additionally offers a snazzy marble bathroom and private terrace. Deep verandas for al fresco lounging and dining overlook a slightly compact backyard decked out with a lap-lane swimming pool, open air cabana, and long, slender deck with panoramic sunset views over mansion-dotted mountains.
Despite the new purchase, Dave McMenamin reports that the house was just a vacation spot for James, who frequents Los Angeles during his time off.
“This is not a basketball decision,” a source close to James said. “He enjoys L.A. as a vacation spot and as a place to relax in the offseason.”
We’ll update you with the photos of the mansion as they come out.
