Basketball’s Elgin Baylor lists Beverly Crest-area estate for $4.25 million

Former pro basketball star and coach Elgin Baylor and his wife, Elaine, have put their Beverly Crest area estate on the market at $4.25 million.

The contemporary Mediterranean-style home, built in 1981, is sited on nearly an acre to take advantage of canyon and city views. Features include a 1,600-square-foot great room that could function as a home theater or game room. There are multiple decks, six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and more than 8,000 square feet of living space.

Baylor, 78, was a small forward with the Minneapolis/Los Angeles Lakers from 1958-71. The Hall of Famer went on to coach the New Orleans Jazz and was general manager for the Los Angeles Clippers for more than 20 years.

The Baylors paid $1,445,249 for the property in 1992, public records show. They raised their family in the home, would now like a smaller place and plan to stay in the area.

Marcel L. Anderson and Mitchell Bravo of Keller Williams Realty’s Westside office are the listing agents.
