Onetime home of Lakers great Jerry West in Ladera Heights listed for $1.5 million
A Ladera Heights home once owned by Los Angeles Lakers great Jerry West is on the market for about $1.5 million.
The Westside neighborhood has history when it comes to star athletes. Baseball legend Frank Robinson, boxer Ken Norton and Olympic gold-medalist Peter Vidmar are among those who have called the area home. Former Lakers player and coach Byron Scott is another former resident.
The mint-colored ranch house, built in 1964 and since updated, sits on about a quarter of an acre and has a swimming pool.
The 3,212 square feet of living space includes a living room with fireplace, a remodeled center-island kitchen, a formal dining room, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. A wood-paneled den has another fireplace and a wet bar.
West sold the house more than a decade ago for about $750,000, property records show.
Yvonne Rose-Jackson of Making a Difference holds the listing. The exact list price is $1,499,900.
West, 78, played his entire career with the Lakers, making 14 all-star teams and winning an NBA title in 1972. As an executive with the Lakers, he twice won executive of the year honors and was part of six championship teams.
He currently works in the Golden State Warriors’ front office.
