NBA great Jerry West parts with home court in Playa Vista
Legendary basketball player and executive Jerry West has made a change to his home roster, selling a Mediterranean-style spread in Playa Vista he owns in a trust for $2.165 million.
The three-story house is on a corner lot and has a gated front courtyard and balconies that overlook a nearby park.
Within about 3,700 square feet of interior space are a living room with a fireplace, a family/media room, three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The kitchen, which has a center island and a breakfast bar, adjoins the dining room. Built-ins bookshelves in the office give the space an executive air.
A three-car garage is accessed from the rear.
The house, built in 2006, came up for sale in September and was most recently listed for $2.22 million. West bought the property new more than a decade ago for $1.695 million, real estate records show.
Sally Forster Jones and Meredith Schlosser of Compass were the listing agents. Forster Jones also repped the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
West, 80, 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 an NBA championship in 1972.
As general manager of the Lakers for two decades, 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.
