NBA veteran Ben Gordon shoots for $2.9 million in Encino
Former NBA sixth man of the year Ben Gordon is selling his home court in Encino, listing the modern two-story for $2.9 million.
The basketball veteran stands to make a nice little profit if he gets his price; records show he dropped $2.6 million on the property when it was newly built in 2017.
Tucked behind gates, the contemporary digs draw the eye with a black-and-white exterior touched up by stone and wood. Inside, a foyer with a floating staircase leads to an open floor plan lined with wide-plank French oak floors.
A black backsplash anchors the living room, and the adjacent kitchen adds a wall of gray tile and a marble island. Pocketing walls of glass open outside, where the backyard holds a chic covered patio, fountain-fed swimming pool, spa and bar tucked into the corner of the lot.
Six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms complete the nearly 5,000-square-foot floor plan. The owner’s suite boasts a private terrace overlooking the backyard — one of three outdoor spaces perched on the second story.
A native of England, Gordon spent three years at the University of Connecticut before joining the NBA, leading the Huskies to a NCAA Championship in 2004. After being drafted third overall by Chicago, he spent 11 years in the league, including stints with the Bulls, Pistons, Bobcats and Magic.
