Former Lakers center Dwight Howard, now a member of the Atlanta Hawks, has bought a home in Tarzana for just over $1.75 million, property records show.
Tucked behind a white picket fence, the updated 1950s Traditional has picture windows and half-circle clerestories that take in garden views.
The house features a new-look kitchen with a center island, a living room, a family room, six bedrooms and 3.75 bathrooms in more than 4,200 square feet of living space. A row of tiered recliners highlight the home theater.
French doors open to a covered patio for outdoor living and entertaining. Hedges and bamboo surround an oval-shaped swimming pool with a grotto-style spa in the backyard.
The property had been listed for $1.799 million at the time of the sale.
Marc Tahler and Ken Zietz of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Jennifer Eckert of Nourmand & Associates represented Howard, who made the purchase through a Georgia-based limited liability company.
Howard, 31, joined the Hawks as a free agent before this offseason on a three-year, $70.5-million contract. A three-time defensive player of the year and eight-time all-star, he has previously played for the Orlando Magic, Lakers and Houston Rockets.
