LeBron James Lists Extravagant Los Angeles Home for $20.5 Million

Among LeBron James’s impressive real estate holdings in the Los Angeles area, this 2011 Brentwood residence may be the smallest—but at 9,400 square feet, the colonial-style manse could easily house an entire basketball team, and then some. Designed by California architect Ken Unger, the gated property was crafted in a classic East Coast aesthetic, with a hip roof, dormers, and a façade sheathed in white brick and natural stone.

The current Lakers forward picked up the six-bedroom dwelling in 2015, following his much-heralded return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, which nabbed him a reported $42 million over two years. Set on half an acre shielded by towering privacy hedges, the stately home is equipped with a bevy of plush amenities, including a lap pool, spa, state-of-the-art security system, elevator, and gym. Add to that an ultra-chic kitchen with richly veined marble countertops, a wood-paneled library, deep verandas perfect for al-fresco dining, and a sunset-view terrace off the second floor’s primary bedroom, and it’s clear this is a castle for a “king.”

James is parting with the spread a year after he shelled out nearly $37 million for a Beverly Hills estate, and he also owns a $23 million spec house just up the road from this listing.
