Though the deal was actually inked last fall, it’s only now the general public has sussed out that NBA star Stephen “Steph” Curry quietly sold off his California “dream home,” a lavish residence in the affluent Silicon Valley enclave of Atherton. Records reveal the estate sold for $31.2 million, or only about $150,000 more than the Golden State Warriors point guard paid for the place a little over three years ago, back in June 2019.
Per records, the off-market buyer is Singapore-based billionaire Forrest Li. A Stanford MBA graduate, China-born Li is founder, chairman and group CEO of Singapore-based Sea, a video game and e-commerce company known for its wildly successful Free Fire title, as well as the Shopee platform. Once Singapore’s richest man, Li was one of the biggest losers in the tech market crash earlier this year, shedding nearly $18 billion off his net worth, per Bloomberg. But he’s still one of China’s wealthiest businessmen, with a newly trimmed estimated net worth of around $3 billion.
Hidden away behind gates at the end of a secluded cul-de-sac, the contemporary stucco and glass structure rests on a flat and irregular-shaped parcel spanning over an acre. Built on spec in 2019 by local developer Joe Comartin of Woodlane Properties and designed by Ken Linsteadt Architects, the multi-winged house features four bedrooms and six baths filtered across more than 7,500 square feet of open-concept living space accented throughout with neutral shades of white, gray and charcoal.
Because the transaction took place off-market, photos and details are practically non-existent. But online articles and renderings show that the three-story spread comes complete with formal living/dining rooms and a gourmet eat-in kitchen. Outdoors, the Studio Green-landscaped grounds are spotlighted by a sundeck-encased pool, plus a cabana holding a fireplace and built-in barbecue. There’s also a small guesthouse and detached three-car garage topped by a loft-style living space.
As for Curry and his TV personality/entrepreneur wife Ayesha, it’s not known whether the the couple has yet to purchase another primary residence in California; but they did buy a Florida vacation house in the tony Winter Park enclave near Orlando over the summer.
