Justin Fargas, the former USC Trojans tailback who played professionally for the Oakland Raiders, has sold his modern home in Sherman Oaks for $2.575 million.

The hillside property, built in 2000, occupies nearly half an acre with a modern three-bedroom main house, a one-bedroom guest house, a saltwater pool, an outdoor kitchen and a putting green.

Clad in cool concrete flooring, the 4,892 square feet of living space sports lofted spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows.


Among the home’s features are a billiards room, a home theater, a designer kitchen, a two-story living room and a generous terrace that overlooks the rear of the property. The master suite has heated floors.

Fargas, 34, is the son of “Starsky and Hutch” actor Antonio Fargas. He was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the 2003 draft and played seven seasons in Oakland.

The property first listed for sale in January for $2.795 million. Fargas purchased the home in 2008 for $2.295 million, according to property records. Brian Capossela of Cap Equity Realty was the listing agent. Alan Taylor of John Aaroe Group represented the buyer in the sale.
