NBA player-turned-coach Byron Scott is walking away a winner from a recent home sale in Playa Vista. The former Laker sold his two-story town home in the area for $998,000, or $8,000 over the asking price.
Scott not only netted more than the asking price, he also doubled his investment. Records show he bought the property seven years ago for $480,000.
The 1,560-square-foot residence is part of an 86-unit complex found two miles from the beach. Hardwood lines the main level, which holds a living room with a fireplace, a dining area and a kitchen with a curved breakfast bar. A balcony sits off the common area.
The upstairs master suite — one of two bedrooms and three bathrooms — adds a second balcony.
In addition to two parking spaces, community amenities include a swimming pool and sports court.
Taria Lewis of Tolbert and Associates holds the listing. Brooke Bryant of RE/MAX Estate Properties represented the buyer.
