NBA All-Star Kevin Garnett takes a loss in home sale

Former #Celtics forward Kevin Garnett sells his home near Boston at a loss

Kevin Garnett of the Brooklyn Nets has sold his home in Concord, Mass., for $3.635 million.

The veteran NBA forward-center paid $4.625 million for the modern home in September 2007 after being dealt by the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Boston Celtics. He listed the property for sale in October 2013 following an off-season trade that sent him from Boston to Brooklyn with Paul Pierce and others.

Designed by Machado and Silvetti Associates, the Boston-based architecture and urban design firm responsible for updates to the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, Calif., the home overlooks Howe’s Pond on 12.7 wooded acres. The contemporary building features floor-to-ceiling glass and vaulted spaces that flood the interiors in natural light.

Among its 11,000 square feet of living space are an open living room, dining room, five bedrooms and five full baths. A furnished lower level sports a wine cellar, a gym and a media room lined in flat-screen televisions. The master suite has an oversize dressing room.

Drafted out of high school in 1995, Garnett, 38, capped off his first year with the Nets and his 19th season in the NBA overall. A 15-time All-Star, he was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in 2004 and won a championship with the Celtics in 2008.

Garnett had asked as much as $4.85 million for the property in October, when he listed it for sale. It received three price cuts totaling $851,000 before closing in June. Rosemary McCready of Coldwell Banker Residential was the listing agent. Brigitte Senkler of Coldwell Banker Residential represented the buyer in the sale.
