Jerry West, the legendary Lakers player and current Clippers executive, has put a Playa Vista home he owns in a trust in play at $2.299 million.
Near the home of Lakers controlling President Jeanie Buss, which is also currently for sale, the streamlined Mediterranean-style house is described in the listing as move-in ready. Dark wood floors, contemporary fixtures and built-ins are among details of note. The chef’s kitchen is furnished with an island and a wine fridge.
Some 3,700 square feet of open-plan living space features a living room with a fireplace and French doors that open to a balcony. A second balcony extends from the family/media room. A dining room, an office with built-ins, three bedrooms and four bathrooms complete the living space.
Outside, turf and lush landscaping fill a fenced and gated front courtyard. There’s also a three-car garage.
West bought the property new more than a decade ago for $1.695 million, real estate records show.
The 80-year-old basketball great won an NCAA title at West Virginia University prior to embarking on a 14-year career with the Lakers in which he made 14 All-Star teams and won a championship (1972).
As general manager with the Lakers, West assembled six championship teams and was the NBA Executive of the Year in 1995. He won a second Executive of the Year award in 2004 as general manager of the Memphis Grizzlies.
He joined the Clippers organization last year as an executive board member.
