Hot Property: Lakers star hangs $8 million price tag on Southern California home
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent later this year, has put his home in the North Ranch area of Westlake Village up for sale for $7.995 million.
The contemporary Mediterranean mansion sits behind gates with a guesthouse and a $1 million infinity-edge swimming pool complete with dual waterslides, a Baja deck and a spa. But perhaps even more impressive: an attached basketball gymnasium featuring its own viewing box.
Custom-built in 1996 and later expanded, the roughly 16,000-square-foot house features a two-story entry with a curved staircase, a wood-paneled office and a movie theater. The kitchen is equipped with two islands. There are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms including a multiroom master suite.
The 2.33-acre property has panoramic views encompassing the surrounding mountains and golf course. A five-car garage, motor court and an extensive solar power system complete the site.
Davis, 27, was acquired by the Lakers from the New Orleans Pelicans last year in a multiplayer deal that included Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart. A seven-time All-Star and three-time All-NBA first-team selection, he was averaging 26.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 55 games for L.A. before the NBA went on hiatus in March due to concerns about the novel coronavirus.
All work, some play
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have cooked up a deal in West Hollywood, buying a newly built home in the area for $5.1 million.
The couple, who reside in the Beverly Hills Post Office area, intend to use the wood-paneled contemporary as a live-work space.
The two-story house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and more than 3,400 square feet of open-concept living space. A high-end kitchen outfitted with a 20-foot-long island opens to the living room. Pocketing doors open to a patio with a lap swimming pool and spa.
Legend, 41, has won 11 Grammy Awards, including two awards for best R&B album, for "Wake Up!" and "Get Lifted." He won an Academy Award for the song "Glory" for the 2014 film "Selma."
Teigen, 34, is a television personality, model and author. She appears on the new court show "Chrissy's Court," on the short-form video platform Quibi.
Hulk smashes sale
Bodybuilder-actor Lou Ferrigno and his wife, Carla, have sold their longtime home in Santa Monica for $3.25 million.
Tucked behind a white picket fence, the two-story house features lath and plaster walls, oak wood floors and picture windows that bring garden views inside. Some 3,400 square feet of living space has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a vaulted-ceiling living room and a dining room. A breakfast nook sits off the updated kitchen.
The house, built in 1926, sits on about 1/5 acre in Gillette's Regent Square area with gardens, lawn and fruit trees. A detached studio-garage sits in the backyard.
Ferrigno, 68, was a two-time Mr. Universe before landing the title role on the CBS series "The Incredible Hulk."
