Made with unusually high doorways and ceilings, this home was originally custom built for NBA all-star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This ultimate ocean view retreat has been a perfect place to relax after Kareem’s retirement from the LA Lakers.
Highlights include: Approx. 6,000 square feet of luxury living space with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a 1 bedroom carriage house, pool and spa, beautiful tropical greenery and a lush fruit orchard. The orchard contains a wide variety of fruit production including: breadfruit, starfruit, citrus, avocados, figs, mangoes, apples, coconuts and bananas.
One thing that may be surprising is that there is no basketball court. Instead, the Lakers gifted Kareem a tennis court for his retirement.
Listed with Sleeping Giant Sotheby’s International Realty, the price has recently dropped to $5.9 million. The owners have changed twice since Abdul-Jabbar lived there. There is now an opportunity for someone else to continue the estates legacy.
