Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan drops $12.7 million cash on Pacific Palisades home
Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has scored a trophy on the Westside, paying $12.7 million in cash for a newly built home in Pacific Palisades.
Found within walking distance of a home owned by teammate Blake Griffin, the Cape Cod-inspired three-story home has 10,500 square feet of living space — slightly more than the size of two basketball courts.
Accessed through a gated garden complete with a cascading waterfall, the home opens to a chandelier-topped grand foyer with a floating-style staircase.
Dark wood floors, paneled walls and neutral tones set off the open-plan interiors. Among public areas is a formal living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room with diamond-shaped coffered ceilings, and a center-island kitchen. A glass-enclosed wine cellar sits off the family room.
A lower entertainment level is decked out with a home theater with a 130-inch screen, stadium seating and floor-to-ceiling suede panels. There’s also an indoor exercise pool, a gym, an elevator and an office accessed by a hidden bookshelf.
The master retreat sports a massive bathroom with a soaking tub, a walk-in closet with glass-enclosed built-ins and a private balcony. There are seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms in all.
On the main level, sliding glass pocket doors open the home to a tiered patio with a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen with multicolored LED lighting. An elaborate waterfall feature, a lawn and a swimming pool with a raised spa fill the nearly half-acre setting.
The house came on the market last year for $14.5 million and was more recently priced at $12.899 million, property records show. It previously sold for $4.56 million in 2013.
Anthony Marguleas of Amalfi Estates was the listing agent. Joshua Goldstein of Nourmand & Associates Beverly Hills represented Jordan in the sale, which closed in September.
Jordan, 27, returned to the Clippers this offseason after originally agreeing to sign as a free agent with the Dallas Mavericks. The eight-year center out of Texas A&M University has led the league in rebounds the last two seasons and averaged a career-high 11.5 points last season.
He will earn $87.6 million over the next four years — with the option to opt out of his contract after the third year.
