Paul Pierce gets his price and more for Cheviot Hills home he bought for his mom

Think of it as a belated Mother’s Day gift. The Cheviot Hills home that former Clipper Paul Pierce bought for his mother in 2001 has sold for $3.5 million — $105,000 above its asking price.

Pierce, who called it a career after the Clippers fell to the Jazz in the playoffs, bought the house for his mother after signing his first long-term contract extension while a member of the Boston Celtics. He put the property on the market in April after moving his mother into a new single-story home in the area.

The Mediterranean-inspired house, built in 2000, has about 5,300 square feet of living space on two stories. Features include a two-story foyer, three fireplaces and a center-island kitchen. French doors open the great room to the backyard.

The master suite has a private balcony and a walk-in closet; the home has a total of six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

A wide loggia, lawns and hedges make up the grounds.

Danny Brown of the Agency bookended the deal, representing Pierce and the buyer.

Pierce, 39, won a championship in 2008 with the Celtics and has also played for the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards. The 10-time all-star retired with 26,397 points scored, the 18th-most in NBA history.
