Former NBA player Brandon Roy is selling his spectacular historic mansion in Seattle for $6.35M.
The very formal Grand French Revival mansion was built in 1931. However, the home recently received a complete remodel, with what the listing dubbed “luxury surfaces and upgraded systems” across its four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and more than 8,000 square feet.
Everything in this vintage home is grand, from the high-drama two-story entry with a curved staircase and domed ceiling, to the walnut library that evokes a bygone era.
The property also includes a garden room, a huge, well-appointed kitchen and adjoining family room, a gym, and four ensuite bedrooms. The main bedroom features a top-floor dressing area that looks as if it was designed for royalty.
The home sits on nearly a half-acre of lush, manicured grounds, which include a pool and guesthouse.
Roy is a native of the Seattle area and played college basketball for the University of Washington. After debuting with the Portland Trail Blazers in 2006, Roy made three All-Star teams before having his career cut short by knee injuries.
After retirement, the high-scoring guard returned to coach at his high school alma mater in Seattle. Roy made headlines as a hero in 2017, when he was shot in the leg while trying to shield children in a random shooting incident.
Now, Roy is ready for a fresh start and a new home. Perhaps he’s looking to downsize to something smaller. But for buyers interested in an historic home designed for formal living and entertaining, the baller is ready to make a deal on this tony mansion in the Emerald City.
