Once the No. 2 employee at the world’s largest shoe and apparel company, and the leading contender to succeed CEO Mark Parker, Trevor Edwards managed Nike’s wholesale sales units, as well as its retail and e-commerce businesses. But after 25 years, the London-born businessman somewhat abruptly resigned in 2018, amid allegations of improper workplace conduct — an early exit that cost him more than $7 million, according to The Oregonian.
Still, it appears Edwards — now a board member at Funko, a toy manufacturer — isn’t hurting financially. In the immortal words of his former employer, he’s “Just [Done] It.” Records show he and wife Carolyn have plunked down nearly $10 million for a modern mansion in the upper Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Nestled securely behind gates amid a secluded cul-de-sac, on a hillside parcel spanning almost a half-acre, the home was originally built way back in the early 1950s and last sold for $2.3 million in 2017. Completely rebuilt and essentially all-new, the two-story structure features six bedrooms and seven baths spread across a little more than 7,600 square feet of open-concept living space offering soaring ceilings, blonde hardwood floors and walls of glass.
Main-level highlights include a living room boasting a floor-to-ceiling linear fireplace below an embedded TV. A spacious family room and formal dining area connect to the sleekly designed eat-in kitchen, which is outfitted with imported marble countertops, custom walnut cabinetry, high-end appliances and an expansive island.
A striking floating staircase heads upstairs, where the master retreat has a private balcony and custom walk-in closet, along with a luxe bath sporting dual vanities, an open shower and soaking tub. Elsewhere are a steam room, a wet bar-equipped entertainment room that spills out to a cantilevered balcony, and bonus room “prepped for any future recreations or endeavors desired,” per the listing.
Especially standing out is the grassy backyard, which hosts an infinity-edge pool and spa, fire-pit, and barbecue setup, along with several patio areas overlooking picturesque ocean views. There’s also an attached two-car garage with an EV charging station out front.
