NFL defensive back Joe Haden buys a $4.3-million home in the L.A. area

Professional football player Joe Haden has found a tricked-out spot on the West Coast to spend his off-seasons. Haden, a defensive back for the Cleveland Browns, has bought a custom home in Encino for $4.3 million.

The newly built Traditional in the Amestoy Estates area contains a world of standout features: disappearing walls of glass, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a security system with 16 cameras, five A/C units and a 10-seat movie theater.

Outdoors, fenced and hedged grounds of more than half an acre center on a saltwater swimming pool and spa. An outdoor kitchen, a pool house with a wet bar and a basketball half-court fill out the setting.

The 6,800 square feet of interiors have an East Coast feel with light oak wood floors playing off crisp white coffered ceilings, subway tile and custom wainscoting. Two floors of living include formal living and dining rooms, an office and a media room. A chef’s kitchen boasts two islands, two dishwashers and four ovens.

The master retreat, one of six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, goes the distance with a sitting area, a fireplace, a wet bar and a spa-like bathroom.

The 26-year-old Haden has 16 interceptions in 77 games for the Browns since being taken in the first round of the 2010 draft. A two-time Pro Bowl selection, he is entering the third year of a five-year, $67.5-million contract extension he signed in 2014.

The house came to market in January for $4.495 million. It previously sold for $1.405 million in 2015.

Ada Livyatan of Rodeo Realty was the listing agent. Brian Whitcanack of Keller Williams Realty represented Haden.
