NBA superstar LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers has purchased an estate in Brentwood.

The 9,440-square-foot house was not marketed for sale in the Multiple Listing Service, but public records show the property sold several weeks ago for $20,986,500.

Built in 2011 and designed by architect Ken Ungar, the charming Traditional-style home has a gabled roof, dormer windows and black shutters. A bay window punctuates a two-story stretch of stone facade along the front of the house.


Beyond the front portico are living spaces such as a central entry hall with a sweeping staircase, a formal dining room, a round breakfast room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

Balcony and deck space off the back of the house extend the living areas outdoors. Lawn and a swimming pool semi-circular spa/fountain complete the grounds.
