Professional basketball couple Candace Parker and Shelden Williams recently listed their Los Angeles luxury home for sale, and because of the unique changes made to accommodate the vertically-blessed couple, the future buyer will stand to benefit.
No, it’s not a basketball court in the backyard or their signatures scribbled on the walls. Parker and Williams opted to put a different personalization on their Los Angeles luxury home, this time in the master bathroom. The WNBA MVP and her former NBA husband reportedly enlarged the shower to accommodate two people who are over six feet tall. But according to real estate agents who have seen the property, they say the shower can likely fit many more people than that.
Located in the Playa Vista community, the couple purchased the home back in 2008 and have listed it for $1.499 million. Parker said: “Our family loved its convenience and community. Playa provided us with a great environment to raise our daughter and walk our dogs!”
While the listed price is $280,000 less than what the couple originally paid, local real estate experts say that the Los Angeles luxury home is still quite expensive for the neighborhood. The couple have reportedly purchased another home in Southern California to give them the possibility of expanding their family.
The home offers 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, and is one of the largest homes in their community, which is one reason why it is priced higher than other Playa Vista homes. But it’s a great value for the right buyer, priced at under $400 per square foot. Many homes in the area have sold for more than that, and Parker and Williams’ home is one of the few homes in the area that is freestanding and doesn’t share a wall with anyone else.
Buyers will delight in the open floor plan that is ideal for entertaining. Architectural features include a variety of archways that lead from room to room, and gorgeous dark hardwood floors that work perfectly with the home’s bones. The Mediterranean-style home includes two powder rooms, a den/office and approximately 3,700 square feet of living space. And any woman would be delighted at the master bedroom that offers three walk-in closets!
Parker currently plays for the L.A. Sparks and won the Women’s National Basketball Association’s most valuable player award in 2008 and again this year. Williams is currently playing for Tianjin Ronggang of China. The property boasts an ideal location near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which the couple has cited as being one of the most convenient aspects of the home.
The Los Angeles luxury home is located at 13077 Kiyot Way in Playa Vista.
