LOS ANGELES — Derek Fisher, a former Los Angeles Lakers point guard and five-time NBA champion, has sold his home in gated Hidden Hills, Calif., for US$5.95 million.
The traditional-style estate, built in 2007 and customized during Fisher’s ownership, features such personal touches as Venetian plaster walls and hickory floors. Modern chandeliers create visual interest in the two-storey foyer and living and dining rooms.
A wood-panelled den, executive office, screening room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms also lie within more than 9,400 square feet of living space. An over-the-top kitchen large enough for a pickup game is equipped with two islands, marble countertops and warming and cooling drawers. An elevator services both floors.
French doors open to a flagstone patio that surrounds the swimming pool and spa. A guesthouse, outdoor fireplace, lawns and formal landscaping fill out the backyard. Elsewhere on the acre-plus property is a two-stall barn.
Fisher, 43, paired with Kobe Bryant in the Lakers backcourt on multiple championship teams coached by Phil Jackson. After retiring in 2014, Fisher reunited with Jackson, then the president of the Knicks, when he was named head coach of the New York franchise. Fisher was let go from his position last year.
He bought the house in 2009 for US$5.5 million, the Los Angeles Times previously reported.
