Ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas has mansion listed for $3.5 million
A lot has changed for Gilbert Arenas since he signed a six-year, $111-million contract extension with the Washington Wizards in 2008.
He was traded to Orlando in 2010 and then amnestied Dec. 9. In March, he signed as a free agent with Memphis, where he worked for a minimum salary of $300,000 and averaged only 12.4 minutes a game.
His NBA career has most likely petered out, forcing the 30-year-old guard to put his D.C.-area house up for sale.
The house, more accurately referred to as a mansion, has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a grotto and a shark tank (which costs $5,000 a month in maintenance bills).
The estate, which he bought in 2003 for for $2.875 million, has reportedly been on the market since June 15 for $3.5 million.
Here’s the description of the estate from Arenas’ real estate reps, via Yahoo:
“Truly unique — One of a kind! Expansive grand home sited on an exquisite gated lot. Soaring ceilings, gleaming cherry floors, CUSTOM details throughout, grand entertaining spaces and comfortable family living space, true CHEF’S kitchen w/large breakfast room overlooks the HUGE in-ground pool and Grotto, your own fantasy playground!!”
