Former Laker Jordan Clarkson has bounced out of his spacious San Fernando Valley home, located in the prototypically suburban Woodland Hills neighborhood, with a $3.25 million check. And records reveal the buyer is a fellow baller: the Washington Wizards’ Thomas Bryant.
The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom Cape Cod-influenced home spans about 5,800-square-feet of living space and sits on nearly a half-acre of land. The two-story abode was newly constructed back in 2018 when Clarkson first snapped the property up for about $3.2 million. Somewhat ironically, Clarkson purchased the lot after he was traded from the Lakers to the Cleveland Cavaliers and initially put it on the market in 2019 for $3.35 million, when he was traded again to the Utah Jazz.
Naturally, the luxury property has all the bells and whistles you’d expect a pro-athlete on a multimillion dollar contract to desire. There’s a saltwater pool, spa, outdoor cabana and firepit bordered by overhanging trees and an ivy-covered brick wall, ideal for cook-outs and afterparties.
Seven-foot-tall athletes usually have the appetite of a single small village, so the chef’s kitchen and butler’s pantry are obvious highlights of the home. There are not one but two center islands with blue/grey cabinetry and white quartz counters — a must-have for mammoth food prep sessions when extended family members and fellow ballers pop over. An integral double door refrigerator and double gas range are also a part of the luxury appliance package.
Wide-plank hardwood flooring flows throughout the home. The sitting room features a fire place and wood plank accent wall. Wainscoting, crown molding and ceiling beams add a sophisticated, upscale feel. In addition to a home theater with tiered seating, the first floor sports a bedroom suite and backyard access. Stairs to the second floor lead to an upstairs sitting area, where there are French doors opening out to a balcony.
The upper level also contains four bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and ensuite baths. The master bath epitomizes suburban luxury, containing a spacious marble shower, porcelain floors and freestanding tub. The bedroom itself has hardwood flooring and a cathedral ceiling, along with French doors that open to a balcony facing the back garden, ideal for dressing-gown lounging before heading off to practice.
