LeBron James is now a full-time Los Angeles area resident. The NBA superstar committed on Sunday night to the Lakers. He's agreed to a four-year maximum contract with the historic franchise.
Thankfully for LeBron, he and his family are already very used to the area. LeBron has two Los Angeles-area homes, one of which he bought earlier this year. That will be the home he and his family are living in moving forward.
The house is a $23 million one. It's a 15,846-square-foot mansion. It has eight bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms.There's a movie theater, an elevator, a home spa, a heated patio and a wine cellar. It's located in Brentwood, Calif.
Trulia has more details on what the home has to offer:
"With stunning views stretching from Downtown Los Angeles all the way to the ocean, LeBron’s new digs were just constructed in 2017. Tucked behind gates up a long driveway, the traditional-style home is a masterpiece of light and design. Step inside to the soaring great room and custom chef’s kitchen, where natural French oak and marble floors reclaimed from Spain create the ultimate sense of luxury. Upstairs, there are four en suite bedrooms, including the luxurious master suite with dual bathrooms, showroom-level walk-in closets, and a private patio.
In case LeBron wants to preserve his leg muscles, a rooftop terrace has direct elevator access. A spacious day-lit lower level features a theater room, wine cellar, cigar room (with air purifying technology!) and an onyx bar. There’s also an auto gallery, because true ballers have no need for normal garages. A guest suite and an indoor/outdoor gym connect to a spa with a steam room, sauna, shower, and massage room. Sliding pocket doors off the main level create an indoor/outdoor flow to a stunning backyard with a rolling grass yard, oversized pool and spa, as well as a heated dining loggia and outdoor kitchen with a BBQ and beer taps."
TMZ reported earlier this year that LeBron James was having the house renovated. ESPN's Brian Windhorst reported on ESPN last night that LeBron's wife, Savannah, was overseeing the renovations.
"Our sources tell us he's adding a basketball court, indoor wine tap (dude LOVES his wine), and is working on the paperwork to get a pizza oven ... while also making changes to the theater and pool," TMZ reports.
A mansion fit for a king, of course. A Lakers king, now.
