Kevin Durant still has off-season love for Southern California, it would seem. Two summers ago, the perennial All-Star bounced out of his oceanfront Malibu villa, selling the $12.2 million house to “CSI” television franchise creator Anthony Zuiker. A professional move from the NBA’s Golden State Warriors to the Brooklyn Nets soon followed. But now Durant is back, and the 32-year-old holds the keys to a $15.6 million mansion in Hidden Hills, a celebrity-packed guard-gated city in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley.
Built this year by a local developer on speculation, the house was pre-sold to Durant prior to its completion, and was never on the market — so details remain exceptionally slim. But the two-story mansion is large, probably around 10,000 square feet, and was designed in the trendy modern farmhouse architectural style. Sited near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a 1.8-acre lot, the spacious property is a literal stone’s throw from the $17.5 million mansion of fellow NBA star Ben Simmons.
The Hidden Hills resident roster has long sported a boatload of celebrity names, many of them professional athletes or musicians. Current homeowners include everyone from the Kardashians to Lori Loughlin, Lil Wayne, Madonna, Drake, Jeffree Star, John Stamos and Alex Van Halen.
Born and raised on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., Durant began his professional career with the Seattle SuperSonics. But the 6’10” superstar is best known for his eight years with the Oklahoma City Thunder — and more recently, with the Golden State Warriors. The small forward, a two-time NBA All-Star MVP, currently plays $164 million contract.
