In the NBA, Blake Griffin found a new home with the Detroit Pistons last year, but he's reportedly still working on cutting his ties to his former Los Angeles digs, putting his Pacific Palisades home on the market for almost $11 million, or $10.995 million, to be more precise.
That's about $2 million more than he paid for it when he bought it about six years back, but it's a pretty impressive home at any price. Past the private gates that separate it from the street, the 9,600-square-foot, three-story house was reportedly designed with the opposite coast – Cape Cod, MA – in mind.
The main floor is dominated by a 24-foot-tall foyer complete with a central floating staircase (a seeming fixture in a lot of homes being bought and/or sold by various celebrities these days) and even a chandelier. The home is said to have a "clean aesthetic" per the Los Angeles Times, thanks to its combination of white millwork and dark wood flooring.
Also on the main floor you'll find the living and dining rooms, as well as a "family room" complete with a fireplace. Elsewhere in the house you'll find the home theater, game room, and, naturally, a gym. Then there's the master suite itself, which would make a nice enough home all on its own in a pinch, with a designated seating area, fireplace, and private outdoor balcony. The master bathroom also doesn't fail to impress, equipped with (per the real estate listing) "heated floors, deep soaking tub & a resort-like steam shower."
All together the house has six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and a saltwater swimming pool and half-court for basketball outside, plus an outdoor kitchen. For a closer look at the home, you can take a look at the YouTube video below. Enjoy:
If all goes well for Blake Griffin, it won't be his house for much longer.
