Real Estate Rumors
Shawn Marion FINALLY unloaded his Miami condo … the one he was so desperate to sell, he once offered up Super Bowl tickets to any takers! The former NBA champ closed the deal on the massive, 7,373 sq. ft pad, which features six bedrooms and seven baths. It’s located in a super exclusive Coconut Grove gated community. Marion lost money on the deal — he sold it for $1.8 million after buying it in 2008 for just under $2.5 million.
Klay Thompson, one-half of the Golden State Warriors’ sweet-shooting “Splash Brothers,” now has a splashy home to go with the title. The shooting guard, who has played his part in the Warriors’ run to the NBA Finals, found time to make another sort of play earlier this year, buying an ocean-view home in Dana Point for $2.2 million.
Other living spaces include a step-down living room, a formal dining room and a master suite with a glass-enclosed shower. In all, there are four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in 4,505 square feet. Outdoors, a covered patio opens onto a long swimming pool. A water-facing terrace extends off the home’s upper level. Stojakovic bought the home in 2012 for $3.675 million, records show.
Former Sacramento Kings forward Peja Stojakovic, who was a perpetual Lakers antagonist during the early 2000s, has listed his home in Miami for sale at $8.9 million. Set among tall palms in the guard-gated Sunset Islands, the property centers on an updated 1930s home with private canal frontage and a boat dock.
NBA All-Star Kevin Durant closed on the sale of his Miami condo for $3.15 million to a company controlled by Felipe Moncaleano. The Oklahoma City Thunder forward paid $1.825 million in 2011 for Unit 6307 in the condo at 900 Biscayne Blvd. so he enjoyed a 73 percent return. However, Durant also remodeled the unit, according to court records.
The walled estate encompasses nearly half an acre with a 12,178-square-foot main house, a guesthouse, security quarters, a 4,500-square-foot patio space and an infinity-edge pool with waterfall features and custom lighting. Private dockage can accommodate space for up to two 60-foot yachts. The three-story main house, replete with dark hardwoods, box-beam ceilings and glass walls, has an elevator, a wood-paneled office and a home theater with stadium seating. An entertainment wing features a lounge area, a game room and a wet bar. There are six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms.
Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is under contract to sell his waterfront home in Coconut Grove, Fla., according to the Multiple Listing Service. The pending sale comes after James in March lowered the asking price for the modern compound in the Crystal Cove area to $15 million, down from $17 million last year. Records show that the 30-year-old basketball player paid $9 million for the property in late 2010, the year it was built.
