The former Bel-Air home of Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson has come on the market for $14.5 million.

The Hall of Famer has long left the building—he lived here during the 1980s—but his custom touches remain.

“It is originally Magic Johnson’s home, so naturally it has an indoor basketball court,” says Compass’ Nancy Ellin, who is the owner and the listing agent. She is representing her property along with Coldwell Banker’s Jade Mills.

After she moved in, Ellin renovated the space. She says the home now has all-new systems, recessed lighting, and security cameras.

It’s ideal for hosting guests, she says. “It is a true entertainer’s haven and an incredibly special home.”

Located in the guard-gated Moraga Estates neighborhood, the retreat offers plentiful privacy.

Redone residence

The completely remodeled transitional estate spans over 10,600 square feet and features six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. Luxe elements include a grand entrance, wide-plank wood floors, a step-down formal living room with a fireplace, and a family room with a bar.

The kitchen has custom cabinets, a marble island, and high-end appliances. Both the kitchen and family room open out to the backyard.

On the second floor, there’s a primary suite, complete with a sitting area, fireplace, balcony, walk-in closets, and bath. Stairs go up to the third-floor gym.

The game room comes with a wet bar and opens out to the backyard as well.

The half-acre lot is serene and lush, with canyon views, tall hedges for privacy, a large lawn, brick patios, a built-in barbecue, a fire pit, and a pool with built-in seating and spa.

But the highlight for sports fans has to be the indoor basketball court originally designed for Johnson. You can watch your friends and family hoop it up. Glass windows in the media room look right down onto the court.

The court also comes with a locker room—and perhaps the ultimate piece of sports memorabilia: autographs of NBA players, including Johnson himself.

“Good luck, work hard,” he wrote next to his name. “P.S. Have fun.”

Built in 1981 for Johnson, the residence served as the player’s digs until 1990.

Drafted by the Lakers in 1979, Johnson starred for the team for 13 seasons, helping lead them to five NBA championships. His playing career was recently covered in the HBO drama “Winning Time.”

After he retired, the 12-time All-Star became a part owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers and a minority owner of the Lakers at one point. He also served as president of the Lakers from 2017 to 2019.
