LeBron James is unsurprisingly living in opulence as he can rightfully afford. After most recently being in the press for his decent role in hit movie Trainwreck, he's finally taken that movie stipend to good use. He has recently purchased a Los Angeles mansion in the luxurious Brentwood neighborhood for $20,986,500. Yes, you read that correctly.
The house is 9,350-square-feet built by custom mansion stylist Ken Ungar in 2011. The specific description of the house included the feature of a place that avoided "abnormally high ceilings" which you would think would be a selling point for 6'8 James. The house feature 6 bedrooms and luxurious features.
La.curb.com described the features on their website including, "dual-sided fireplace, a marble bathroom, and a private terrace. The grounds include a pool, a cabana, and a deck. Photos also show the house's two spacious backyard patios, which overlook a grassy, "compact" yard." Talk about amazing!
Front Lawn/ Backyard
What a very green lawn for California! It's color scheme is quite obviously off white with what looks like navy/black shutters and a grayish stone accent. It includes a three car garage and gives off a very nice curb appeal. Undoubtedly it includes a private gate to protect privacy of its residence. The backyard shows an upper balcony and a plethora of sitting locations for guests. A fountained pool sits decently towards the back of the property.
All white everything with some minor accents. I absolutely love this concept even though it doesn't really have a homey feel to it. It kind of reminds me of a luxurious hotel with it's color scheme. I'm sure guests will have no issues with finding plenty of places to sleep for the night in the six bedrooms at their disposal. Unfortunately, there were no other pictures of the other guest bedrooms online however this definitely does the job at impressing me.
Talk about an oasis! It's a lovely combination of dark wood, beige coloring, and perfect natural lighting. There is a great chandelier and high ceiling. You can see that the master has it's own private balcony and plenty of space to relax. I have to say I'm extremely envious of this space.
This bathroom comes equipped with only one sink however for single James, it shouldn't be much of a problem. The rainfall shower has not one but three shower heads for showering pleasure. There is also a seat in the bathroom which I'm assuming comes accustomed with a steamer. The marble floors and white accents really bring out aspects of a clean and comfortable space.
Formal Family Room
Talk about regal. It's a nice combination of modern and contemporary. It has a warmer tone than most of the house but it's a nice welcoming space for guests with more serious business. A grand piano sits in the corner of the room with multiple windows letting natural light in. I just can't get over how much I adore these chairs!
Stainless steel appliances, white cracked marble back splash, and white cabinets really complete this look. I adore the black countered island with an extra sink. The ceiling gives the room a very beach vibe with the floor being light enough not to be obnoxious next to the white drawers. Overall a very perfect space to have morning Sunday breakfast.
Cozy and comfortable, guests will never want to leave. It's not over the top and exudes a sense of classiness. At the end of the day, everyone just wants to retreat to a space that feels like home and I'm sure this fits the bill. I can completely imagine James enjoying this room with a nice glass of wine and good company. Again, those chairs!
Elegant. The bowl. The wallpaper. Swoon.
Though I highly doubt this design will stay, what a great concept! Super kid friendly and perfect for entertaining younger guests. It's most definitely the most colorful room in the house and it's for good reason. I really love the papers hanging from the ceiling and the funky rug that compliments the green couch. Can I hang out in here?
