$23 million — Brentwood
A limited liability company linked to basketball star LeBron James paid $23 million for a newly built spec mansion on North Tigertail Drive. Two years ago, the same property sold as a vacant lot for $5.1 million, records show.
Sitting up from the street, with city-to-ocean views, the 15,846-square-foot home is furnished with an elevator, a home theater and a custom kitchen with a La Cornue range. A lower level was designed for entertaining and holds a home theater, wine cellar, cigar room and onyx-lined wet bar.
There are eight bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms as well as a spa with a steam room, sauna and massage room.
Oversized glass doors open to an expansive loggia with built-in heaters. A swimming pool and spa complete the grounds.
The corporate entity is the same that was used by James two years ago to buy another home in the Brentwood area for about $21 million.
