NBA analyst Kenny Smith lists Encino home for $3.6 million
Retired NBA player and basketball analyst Kenny “The Jet” Smith and his wife, model-singer-actress Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith, have listed their home in Encino for sale at $3.595 million.
The couple appear to be banking on a flourishing luxury market in the Encino area, which saw 120 single-family home sales of $2 million or more last year. Five years ago they had asked $2.795 million for the French country estate on more than half an acre.
Built in 1963 and since remodeled, the two-story house features vaulted and beamed ceilings, light wood floors and skylights for a bright and airy feel. The 6,106 square feet of interior includes an open-plan living room, a family room, a remodeled kitchen and a breakfast area. A movie theater has its own wet bar, bathroom and balcony.
Including a detached guest house, which has a separate entrance, there are six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
A stone-rimmed swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen, a playground, lawns and mature trees fill out the grounds.
Smith, 52, played for six teams in 10 NBA seasons, winning back-to-back championships with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995. The Emmy Award-winning studio analyst has been a fixture on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” for more than a decade.
Osborne-Smith last year appeared on the web comedy “Beauty and the Baller.” She previously worked as a model on “The Price Is Right” for more than a decade.
They bought the home in 2011 for $1.85 million, records show.
Craig Knizek and James Hirsch of the Agency hold the listing.
