Warriors' Stephen Curry scores a $3.2-million home in S.F.'s East Bay

As Stephen Curry attempts to pilot the Golden State Warriors to unprecedented heights, the all-star point guard has made a play away from the court, buying a home in Walnut Creek, Calif., for $3.2 million.

Set on about an acre, the two-story Mediterranean estate was built in 2012 and has a gated motor court and a formal courtyard entry.

Nearly 8,000 square feet of open-plan space includes a two-story foyer that opens to a step-down living room and an adjacent dining room area. A center-island kitchen and family room area sit off the foyer.

For entertainment, a lower-level space is outfitted with media and billiards rooms, a 2,300-bottle wine cellar and a full bar.

Occupying a separate wing of the home, the master suite boasts an office, a fireplace and a private balcony. Marble and Travertine finishes, a frameless glass shower and jetted spa tub highlight the master bathroom.

There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms and four fireplaces in all.

French doors open to a wide covered patio with an outdoor kitchen. Formal landscaping, gardens and a separate 800-square-foot casita complete the grounds.

The house came on the market in April for $3.988 million and was more recently priced at $3.65 million, records show. It previously sold for $2.5 million last year.

Vikki Bearman of Empire Realty Associates was the listing agent. Andy Read of Caldecott Properties represented the buyer.

Curry, 27, earned NBA most valuable player honors last year while leading Golden State to its first title in 40 years. The former first-round pick out of Davidson College has shown no signs of slowing down this season, averaging a league-best 32.7 points through 15 games.
