Blake Griffin is staying with the Detroit Pistons for the near future, he’s unloading his former home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles
Variety reports he recently listed it for $11 million.
The former Clippers star tested the waters with a whisper listing, quietly shopping the mansion around for nearly $12 million.
With no buyers nibbling, the mansion is now on the market for anyone to take a peek.
Griffin bought this brand new 9,600-square-foot home in the Palisades Riviera for $9 million.
Remarkably wide, espresso-stained hardwood floors, decorator ready bright white walls and oodles of custom millwork are featured throughout the main floor living and entertaining spaces that open to a warehouse-sized foyer under a 24-foot ceiling with a sweeping curved staircase. The formal living room has a fireplace between built-in bookshelves and a bank of telescopic glass sliders to the backyard while the ample formal dining room features a double-coffered ceiling treatment. Configured around a huge island with a six-seat snack bar, the high-end kitchen opens to a cozily proportioned family room with TV-surmounted fireplace and a wide expanse of glass sliders that slip into the walls to merge the room with a deep, poolside loggia. The main level is completed by an office and en suite guest bedroom.
There are three more guest bedrooms with private bathrooms on the upper floor along with a lavish master suite that comprises a bedroom with vaulted ceiling and a spacious sitting area with fireplace and balcony access through French doors. There are also two deluxe dressing rooms lined with glass-fronted wardrobes and a bathroom finished with a herringbone pattern marble tile floor and equipped with a two person soaking tub and a marble lined steam shower.
In addition to an en suite bedroom for less-favored guests, an anti-social teen or live-in domestic staff, the expensively finished subterranean level contains a fitness room, a family/games room with multiple wall-mounted televisions and a home theater with 130-inch screen and padded burgundy suede wall panels.
Now in his ninth season in the NBA, he’s made his sixth All-Star team and is in the second year of a five-year, $171 million contract extension.
