If pro basketball player DeAndre Jordan had ended up going to the Dallas Mavericks, then seeing his Pacific Palisades trophy home show up on the market at $12.895 million would make sense. But the Los Angeles Clippers center just bought the newly built house in September for $12.7 million in cash. Is this another case of signer’s remorse?
Located within walking distance of a home owned by teammate Blake Griffin, Jordan’s slightly used Cape Cod-inspired three-story mansion has 10,500 square feet of living space. Fun features include a basketball half-court, a putting green and a secret room with a hidden passage and a thumbprint entry system.
The ocean-view estate is accessed through gates and a garden with a waterfall. Inside the home’s double doors is a dramatic chandelier-topped foyer with a sweeping staircase.
Formal spaces include a living room with a fireplace and a formal dining room with diamond-shaped coffered ceilings. The wine cellar has a glass wall facing the foyer. The home theater features a 130-inch screen and stadium seating. There’s also an indoor exercise pool, a gym and an elevator, not to mention a total of seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
Disappearing sliding glass pocket doors along the back of the house open to a tiered patio with a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen. A waterfall with colored LED lighting and a swimming pool with a raised spa complete the half-acre grounds.
Jordan, 27, returned to the Clippers in the off-season after originally agreeing to sign as a free agent with the Mavericks. The eight-year center, known for his shot blocking, will earn $87.6 million during the next four years.
Arrik Weathers of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
