LA Lakers’ New Addition, LeBron James Has Two Homes To Split His Time In The City

Share this Post!

LeBron James’ transition to the Los Angeles Lakers may not be as daunting as one would think, mainly because he needs not to worry about seeking a home in the city. The NBA star already owns two.

Back in December, the famed forward shed $23 million on an eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom estate in the swanky neighborhood of Brentwood. The 15,846-square-foot contemporary residence, built in 2017, rests at the end of a winding driveway behind private gates.

Despite its modern, high-tech touches, the house exemplifies a traditional aesthetic with an emphasis on natural light and materials, such as French oak and marble reclaimed from Spain.


A theater room, a wine cellar, a cigar room and an onyx bar provide ample opportunities for entertainment, while an auto gallery – that also doubles as a garage – offers the perfect exhibit place for James’ fleet. A pool, a spa and a state-of-the-art gym (a requirement given that James keeps a rigorous five-day workout routine even in the off-season) shape out the amenities.


James’ other LA home, a $21-million estate, is not far away. Also in the celebrity-studded Brentwood community, the house spans some 9,440 square feet, envisioned by architect Ken Ungar.

Perhaps, James has a proclivity for houses that blend the modern and the traditional, because the residence, which he purchased in 2015, is another portfolio pick that embodies the two.  A gabled roof, dormer windows and a stone façade elevate the design, which also includes a backyard pool, cabana and several patios.


Aside from his two properties in Los Angeles, James owns a mansion in his native Akron, Ohio, where he is erecting a public school for low-income, at-risk youth.

The 33-year old basketball player parted with a three-story mansion in Coconut Grove, Florida, collecting $13.4 million in the process, when he moved from Miami Hear to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2015.
