NBA’s Morris twins take Justin Bieber’s onetime lease home for a spin

One might say celebrities are running circles around this income property in Beverly Hills.

Known for its cylindrical glass-and-steel appearance, the Ed Niles-designed contemporary has become a short-term go-to for A-listers and athletes since selling last year for $10.5 million.

The property is offered at $59,000 a month for long-term lease or between $5,500 and $6,000 a night for short-term tenants. Occupants of note include Justin Bieber, who leased the steel-ribbed fishbowl after his exit from Calabasas last year, and rapper Meek Mill, who in February used the house to throw a Grammy after-party.

More recently, NBA players Markieff and Marcus Morris popped in for a visit before the start of training camp. The twin brothers, who play for the Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons, respectively, also had a $20,000 private chef and a personal driver at their disposal during their six-day stay.

Built in 2009, the three-level home centers on a circular garden courtyard set within tempered walls of glass. Walkways of polished Portuguese blue marble lead through large expanses of grass to a sail-shaped infinity pool and spa.


Formal living and dining rooms, a second-story family room, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms are within more than 6,500 square feet of interiors. An aluminum-sheathed staircase and an elevator run between each level.

Garage space for as many as seven cars completes the gated half-acre setting.

The University of Kansas alums, both first-round draft picks in 2011, will be wearing different uniforms this year after the Suns dealt Marcus Morris to the Pistons in July.

A small forward, Marcus Morris averaged 10.4 points and 4.8 rebounds coming off the bench last season. Markieff Morris, a power forward, averaged 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds while starting all 82 games for the Suns.

Lee Mintz of Partners Trust Real Estate was the leasing agent for the twins.
