LeBron James, a forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers, just bought a $21 million home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, according to Variety. The NBA star got rave reviews for his part in Trainwreck this summer and buying a home near Hollywood certainly suggests more acting is in his future.
The Hollywood home was originally built for a real estate developer, and his family and isn't huge, by celebrity standards, at 9,350 square feet.
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. 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.
The master bedroom shares a two-way fireplace with a private sitting room, and additionally offers a snazzy marble bathroom and private terrace. Deep verandas for al fresco lounging and dining overlook a slightly compact backyard decked out with a lap-lane swimming pool, open air cabana, and long, slender deck with panoramic sunset views over mansion-dotted mountains.
