Former Clipper Caron Butler scores a home with a hoop in Woodland Hills
Professional basketball player Caron Butler has yet to find his next NBA home this off-season, but he has found a place to hoop it up. The two-time All-Star recently bought a home in Woodland Hills with a basketball half-court for $2.13 million.
Set behind gates in the Walnut Acres area, the two-story house is loaded with outdoor amenities. Besides the lighted sports court, there’s a putting green, a saltwater swimming pool and spa and a large covered pavilion complete with an outdoor dining area, bar and kitchen. A 900-square-foot guesthouse sits at the rear of the hedged and fenced grounds.
The main house, built in 1998 and recently renovated, has a contemporary look with vaulted ceilings, wide-plank wood floors and dark-trimmed windows and doors. A formal living room features a white-hued wall fireplace.
Also within the 5,700 square feet of interiors is a dining area, an updated chef’s kitchen, a breakfast nook, a library/den and a media room/home theater with a wet bar. The master suite has a large soaking tub and a steam shower for a total of five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
A motor court with parking for as more than 10 vehicles sits off the front of the home. There’s also a workshop in the three-car garage.
Suzan Kozman of Century 21 Troop Real Estate was the listing agent. Cynthia Moultrie of Keller Williams Realty represented the buyer.
Butler, 36, spent last season with the Sacramento Kings, appearing in 17 games. The 14-year NBA veteran had picked up his 2016-17 option with the team but was waived by the Kings earlier this month.
The forward out of the University of Connecticut previously played for the Lakers in 2004-05 and the Clippers in 2011-13.
