The Los Angeles Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has tossed his modern mansion in Playa Vista, CA, onto the market. The property is now available for $4.95 million.
He picked up the brand-new build in 2019 for $4 million, and is now likely to be looking for a home with more security.
In June, TMZ reported that the Lakers star and some friends were robbed at gunpoint in the driveway of his home. Although the TMZ article doesn’t mention the address, this Playa Vista residence is the only place in California currently owned by Caldwell-Pope. The thieves reportedly got away with $150,000 of stolen goods, including a Rolex watch, jewelry, and an iPhone, but Caldwell-Pope wasn’t harmed.
A month after the incident, this gorgeous home is now on the market. The boxy build in what’s known as Silicon Beach is within walking distance of both YouTube and Google campuses.
With five bedrooms and seven bathrooms on 4,544 square feet, the listing describes the residence as the “premier modern home” in Playa Vista.
The walkway into the home is surrounded by palm trees and lush foliage, and you enter into an open-plan dining and living area with two-story ceilings, a stainless-steel fireplace, and a disappearing wall that opens out to a patio.
The sleek kitchen features a tall wine fridge, a Sub Zero built-in refrigerator, quartzite counters, and an island with bar seating. That welcoming kitchen area sits next to the dining area.
Upstairs, you’ll find the bedrooms, including the master bedroom, which comes with a walkout balcony large enough for seating, a walk-in closet, double sinks in the bathroom, a tub, and shower.
All bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms.
The large third floor features a family room, plus a rooftop bar with kitchen, perfect for entertaining.
The three floors are connected by an elevator, and the smart home includes an automated control system for window coverings, sound, wiring for internet, and a security system with cameras. The home also comes with an attached two-car garage.
Other perks include high ceilings, wood floors throughout, and an exercise room.
Playa Vista offers a range of amenities, including parks, basketball courts, soccer fields, Whole Foods, yoga studios, a movie theater, and a resort-style gym and pool. It’s only a quick bike ride to the beach.
Previously, the 28-year-old, nicknamed KCP, played for the Detroit Pistons, who selected the Georgia native eighth overall in the 2013 NBA Draft. In 2017, the free agent signed with the Lakers, winning his first NBA championship with the team in 2020. That same year, he re-upped with the Lakers on a three-year, $40 million deal.
Michael A. Henderson with Compass holds the listing.
