Former NBA sharpshooter Byron Scott picked up this Los Angeles Mediterranean this month. Then he put it back down again, and shelled out $1.9 million for it. He must like it.
And who can blame him? Even without the pair of exotics decorating the driveway, the 1996-built house has much to commend it as a residence, and an investment too. The exterior living area is designed to have the feel of an oasis, with a saltwater pool, a cabana with a kitchen and bar, a spa, a court, and a fire pit and lounge.
Inside the 4,416 square-footer, you’ll find a living style that falls somewhere between a smaller palace and an 18th century French mansion, with plentiful marble—fireplace, staircase, columns, tile floors—crystal chandeliers, soaring ceilings, and the occasional fresco. Amenities in the five-bedroom, six-bath house include a media room/lounge with built-ins, and a lavish master suite.
Scott won three championships with the Lakers; in 1985, 1987, and 1988.
