LeBron James Snags Brentwood Mansion for $21 Million (EXCLUSIVE)

It seems basketball superstar LeBron James just might be fixin’ to make a full court press on Hollywood. According to uncommonly well-connected real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak, and circumstantially affirmed with property records, the celebrated six-foot-eight Cleveland Cavalier, who made a big splash in Amy Schumer’s summer hit comedy “Trainwreck” and executive produces the loosely autobiographical Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse,” surreptitiously splashed out a sliver less than $21 million for an East Coast-style mansion on a plum block in an uber-pricey pocket of L.A.’s Brentwood community. Designed by mansion specialist Ken Ungar, and custom built in 2011 for a real estate developer and his family, the dignified, understated and architecturally asymmetrical six-bedroom and seven-bathroom Colonial measures in at a hefty but, by today’s bigger-is-better standard, hardly humongous, 9,350 square feet.

The stone and white brick-clad exterior gives way to a voluminous foyer flanked by ample living and dining rooms, both with fireplaces and honey-toned wide-plank wood floors. Less formal family quarters include a cook-friendly kitchen fitted with slab marble back splashes and every high-quality stainless steel appliance known to mankind, a breakfast nook set into a window-lined semicircular bay, and a family room that spills out through a bank of French doors to the backyard. The master bedroom shares a two-way fireplace with a private sitting room, and additionally offers a snazzy marble bathroom and private terrace. Deep verandas for al fresco lounging and dining overlook a slightly compact backyard decked out with a lap-lane swimming pool, open air cabana, and long, slender deck with panoramic sunset views over mansion-dotted mountains.

The enormously accomplished, endorsement-rich, and notably philanthropic two-time NBA champion sold a three-story waterfront contemporary in Coconut Grove, Fla., only a few months ago for $13.4 million, but continues to own a seven-plus acre spread in Akron, Ohio, anchored, according to tax records, by a 30,000-square-foot mega-mansion with six bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
