LeBron James buys mansion in L.A.
CLEVELAND– Akron will always be home for LeBron James, but he also has a Los Angeles address.
Variety reports the Cleveland Cavaliers star recently purchased a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion in L.A.’s Brentwood area. The 9,350-square-foot home had a price tag of more than $20 million.
“The stone and white brick-clad exterior gives way to a voluminous foyer flanked by ample living and dining rooms, both with fireplaces and honey-toned wide-plank wood floors,” Variety’s Mark David wrote. “Less formal family quarters include a cook-friendly kitchen fitted with slab marble back splashes and every high-quality stainless steel appliance known to mankind, a breakfast nook set into a window-lined semicircular bay, and a family room that spills out through a bank of French doors to the backyard.”
Sources told ESPN James enjoys vacationing in L.A. and this was not based on his basketball career.
James recently sold his property in Coconut Grove, Florida from his days with the Miami Heat, but still has his 30,000-square-foot mansion in Bath Township, just outside of Akron.
Does this mean we can expect more movie roles for the star small forward?
