Clippers player Kawhi Leonard has purchased a $17.1 million Palisades home, according to a report from Dirt, marking his third Southern California real estate purchase.
The seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom, single-family home, which was built in 2018, features nearly 12,000 square feet of living space.
“Perched on its own promontory in prime Pacific Palisades, this custom-built Hampton-style home is ready for an individual or family looking for a large-scale open-plan home with ultimate privacy and spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Monica Conservancy,” according to the home’s listing.
When entering the home, a grand foyer is connected to the living, dining and entertaining areas. A chef’s kitchen is fitted and furnished with top-of-the-line appliances for cooking and entertaining.
A large master suite includes a private balcony, fireplace and individuals couples’ bathrooms. There are large closets, adjoined to a steam shower in the center the bathroom.
The rest of the home includes six additional en-suite bedrooms. There is a 10-seat movie theater, 960-bottle wine cellar, gym and billiard room.
“This house is a must-see for anyone looking for something extraordinary,” the listing concludes.
The property features an infinity pool, spa, extending deck and outdoor entertaining space.
Leonard reportedly purchased the home from film/TV producer and entrepreneur Ryan Kavanaugh who first listed it for $25 million in April 2019 before taking it off the market and putting it back on at $17.5 million.
Repping both sides of the transaction were Josh Altman, Jessica Kavanaugh (wife of Ryan), and Brad Baskin of the Altman Brothers Team at Douglas Elliman.
Leonard, a six-foot, seven-inch-tall small forward, played for the San Antonio Spurs between 2011 and 2018, the Toronto Raptors from 2018 to 2019, and the Los Angeles Clippers since 2019.
Editor’s note: This story was updated on April 13 to add Brad Baskin as one of the agents involved in the transaction.
