This month, NBA MVP Award-winning point guard Russell Westbrook relisted his retreat in Beverly Hills for $5.699 million.
Westbrook, who recently joined the Houston Rockets as a starting player, and carries a substantial portion of the team’s hopes for renewed ascendancy in the league, initially listed the house in June of this year, asking just under $6 million. He purchased the property for $4.65 million four years ago this month, while still playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team he’d played for since its inaugural season.
The boxy Beverly Park modern boasts a dramatic black-trim-on-white exterior, and moody interiors. Walnut-finished hardwood, off-white walls and contemporary light fixtures express the reserved living style of the shared spaces; an open concept brightens somewhat, but the house needs a few skylights for the living style to achieve a semblance of liberation.
Up a contemporary staircase with a solid glass balustrade, the master suite awaits. The bedroom features soft gray walls and sliding glass opening to a balcony that looks out over the pool area. The master bath may be the most immediately appealing room in the house; possessing the requisite marble, its brightness, space, and optimistically, subtly warm off-white treatment suggests the possibility of the restorative.
