WNBA great Lisa Leslie parts ways with her home in Calabasas
Local basketball great Lisa Leslie has completed an off-court pass of sorts, selling her home in a gated Calabasas community for $1.854 million.
The two-story home, set up from the street on half an acre, was built in 1996 and has stone steps that lead up to the front door.
The roughly 4,600 square feet of interiors features a two-story entry with a sweeping staircase that opens to a living room with a fireplace and an adjacent family/game room. A dining room topped with a modern chandelier also sits off the entry.
A center-island kitchen, an office/den, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms are also within the home. The master suite has a fireplace, a sitting area and a walk-in closet.
French doors open to a covered patio and a swimming pool with a spa and waterfall feature. A built-in barbecue, lawns and landscaping fill out the setting. There’s also an attached three-car garage.
Leslie bought the house four years ago for $1.7 million, records show. She had asked as much as $2.19 million for the home.
Haroldine Gearhart of Rodeo Realty was the listing agent.
The 43-year-old Leslie has ties to Southern California, having starred at USC and, before that, at Morningside High in Inglewood. The decorated center won three WNBA most valuable player awards and made eight all-star teams in a dozen seasons with the Los Angeles Sparks.
As an Olympian, Leslie won four consecutive gold medals for Team USA from 1996 to 2008. She retired in 2009. She was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last year.
