NBA player and former Laker Kwame Brown has sold his house in Playa del Rey for $1.65 million.
The open-floor-plan house had been on and off the market since 2008 when it was listed for sale at $2.999 million or for lease at $12,000 a month. The current listing stated the home had sustained water damage on the main level and needed a new roof, windows, doors and elevator.
Described as a short sale in the listing, the ocean-view contemporary includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms in 6,329 square feet. The breakfast bar can seat up to 10. The basement media room has a built-in projector, screen and a wet bar.
Brown, 29, bought the property for $3.375 million in 2005, the same year he joined the Lakers. After moving on to several other teams, the first pick in the 2001 NBA draft is center for the Golden State Warriors. He recently signed a one-year, $7-million deal with the team.
