He may have missed a few shots recently, but this purchase is a slam dunk for NBA player Ben Simmons.
The Philadelphia 76ers point guard dropped $17.5 million on a 12,000-square-foot mansion in Los Angeles’ Hidden Hills neighborhood before it even hit the market, according to reports.
The seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion’s acquisition does not make the NBA player’s next moves any clearer, as fans speculate about a potential trade.
The Sixers have stated they are committed to keeping Ben Simmons after a rocky season, but ESPN reporter Stephen Smith called that a “lie,” speculating that the right offer could shuffle Simmons to another team. His agent, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul, did not respond to The Post’s request for comment.
The Aussie basketball player recently declined to play on the national Australian basketball team for the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, opting to work on his game. In the meantime, the former boyfriend of Kendall Jenner was recently spotted in London with Maya Jama, a 26-year-old British television presenter who is rumored to be his girlfriend.
Because the 24-year-old’s Los Angeles abode has never been listed on the market, photos are not available. Mercifully, one of YouTube’s most popular real estate agents Enes Yilmazer made a tour of the project just before it sold, giving celebrity real estate fans plenty of insight into the new build. Yilmazer did not reply to a request for comment.
The home’s exterior is mixed dark brick and distressed wood, developer videos show.
Inside, the house is decked out in Pietra gray marble floors and sleek, dark wood, contrasted by light boxes, LED lights and floor-to-ceiling windows, according to Yilmazer’s video tour.
The wide glass front door under a covered entry leads to a wood-paneled foyer with modern, exposed lighting fixtures, the tour shows.
The hallway opens into the great room, which stuns with peaked cathedral ceilings featuring exposed, lit ceiling beams, the video tour footage shows.
Two massive custom-built metal jointed chandeliers worth about $80,000 each hang over a large dining room table, Yilmazer said.
A large wine bottle display holds approximately 250 bottles, photos show. A large chef’s kitchen is hidden in the wood paneling next to the wine display, according to the tour.
In the middle of the room, a patinaed, handmade Italian brass panel weighing 6,000 pounds hangs over a Pietra gray marble slab, separating the dining room from the living room, as Yilmazer shows in his video.
The formal living room sits opposite the dining room, with the same shared cathedral ceiling. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow light into the dark, modern interior, which was offered with custom furniture selected by Max Nobel, according to the video tour.
A second hallway has a marble powder room hidden in its seamless oak panels and, on the left, marble doors open to a screening room with candy dispensers and a textured wood ceiling, Yilmazer’s video shows.
Slatted wood pocket doors open to a double-height family room with a living tree. Towering shelving and a glossy gas fireplace anchor one corner of the room.
A sleek family kitchen hides the refrigerator, dishwasher and stove in seamless panels, and burners are built directly into the marble island for a clean look. A pantry and an office hide behind the kitchen, the tour shows.
Glass doors open to a sleek wood patio with a marble glass fireplace, videos show.
Upstairs, bedroom suites offer balcony access, walk-in closets, skylights, luxury bathrooms and access to a shared laundry room, according to the tour.
A sky bridge piercing over the family room leads to the primary bedroom suite, which offers cathedral ceilings, a wall of windows and a padded wall behind the king bed, according to the video tour.
The room has built-in shelves, a fireplace and a walk-in closet with a light-box ceiling. Double pocket dark glass doors open to a bathroom with chiseled marble block sinks, a walk-in marble shower with a rain head and built-in shelving featuring a Nespresso machine, Yilmazer’s video shows.
Outside, the 1.5-acre lot has olive trees on a sloped yard. An infinity-edge pool offers a Baja shelf, a spa and a pool house with a four-paneled television and a full bathroom, according to the video tour.
There are several outdoor seating and dining areas with outdoor fireplaces, as seen in the footage.
A semi-detached media room is set up to showcase a car, and pivot doors open to the driveway and open grid motor court, which extends to the three-car garage, the video tour shows.
The guest house was designed to face a large “Avatar”-like tree, developer Max Nobel of Nobel LA told Yilmazer in his video.
It has the same steel and marble details seen in the main house, complete with lit exposed beams across cathedral ceilings. The miniature luxury home has its own fireplace, a white marble bathroom (contrasting the dark grey marble throughout the house), its own deck and even its own infinity pool.
The Altman Brothers, Josh and Matt Altman, had the listing. Stephen Sweeney of SGS Estates and Bre Tiesi of Keller Williams represented the buyer.
Developers Max Nobel of Nobel LA and BB West Coast Development also posted photos and videos of the property on social media. The exact roles of their business partnership is unclear, and neither replied to a request for comment.
