Berkshire Hathaway Home Services has a new listing on the market. Located at 221 S. Rockingham Avenue in Brentwood, CA, the enormous Mediterranean-style estate is currently owned by basketball superstar LeBron James, who purchased the property in 2015. The upscale Rockingham Rim area in Brentwood has seen its fair share of A-list celebrities from Marilyn Monroe to Gwyneth Paltrow to Arnold Schwarzenegger. The gated LA property is one of three James owns in the area. The 9,440-square-foot home is set on 25k square feet of land and is shaded by towering redwoods, hedges, and tall gates for privacy, shade, and a feeling of serenity.
The six bed/eight bath home has an indoor/outdoor living concept, and all living spaces are highlighted by oak floors, tall ceilings, and an abundance of light. The master bedroom has an en-suite spa-style bathroom with a terrace, sitting room, and two walk-in closets.
The large kitchen is covered in Calacatta marble, from countertop to backsplash, and features a multifunctional island and a rounded breakfast booth lit by a beautiful crystal, circular chandelier.
The indoor amenities have been updated and feature a gym, an elevator, guest-maid quarters, a wood-paneled library/office, a media room for enjoying movies and sporting events, a mudroom, four masonry fireplaces, and a state-of-the-art audio/video, security & automation system throughout. There is also a second-story family room.
The backyard has several resort-style amenities including a 20-foot-long lap in-ground pool with a spectacular view of Holmby Hills, a spa, and a pool-side cabana. A three-car garage with direct entrance offers an additional layer of privacy and the home has a backup generator. We’d be amiss to leave out the basketball hoop that has been properly broken in by James and his family in the enormous driveway.
The airy feel and floor-to-ceiling windows bring the perfect Californian vibe. Under the loggia, there’s a beautiful dining area that opens in one of the two family rooms. Every room features views of mature trees and shrubbery creating a calm, peaceful setting anywhere in the home.
Every aspect of the home’s design is elegant and of the highest quality. For more information, contact David Offer with Berkshire Hathaway.
James favors the L.A. area as he recently dropped $36.8M for a Golden Age Beverly Hills estate, where Katherine Hepburn once resided. It’s reported that is his current residence of choice.
