Vanessa Bryant sells Irvine home she owned with Kobe for $2 million
That was fast. Less than a week after listing an Irvine investment home, Vanessa Bryant has sold it for $2 million — or $5,000 over the asking price.
Bryant, wife of late Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, listed the home Wednesday for $1.995 million, and a deal for the property was under contract by Friday. Records show she and Kobe bought the place in 2013.
Built in 2003, the Tuscan-style spot is found in the Summit at Turtle Ridge, a gated community a few miles from Bryant’s main estate in Newport Coast. A clay tile roof tops the brick-and-stucco exterior, and lush landscaping leads to the front door.
Inside, three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms are spread across 2,300 square feet. Dramatic beams dominate a living room with a fireplace, and the adjacent kitchen draws the eye with splashes of Spanish tile and a large limestone island with a farmhouse sink.
Arched doorways navigate the single-story floor plan, and out back, French doors open to a secluded brick patio with a fireplace and in-ground spa. A pair of ivy-topped garages complete the cul-de-sac property.
Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX One held the listing. JoJo Romeo of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
