Two years after conquering a modern spot in Hollywood Hills, NBA veteran Chandler Parsons sold it for $8 million.
That’s much less than the $10.9 million he asked in January, but still $1.225 million more than what he paid in 2019. It was one of two houses he picked up that year; weeks earlier, he dropped $9.25 million on a concrete-lined compound in Malibu owned by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker.
Located above the Sunset Strip, the modern home was built in 2018 and Parsons kept things pretty much the same. He made no changes to the living areas, but managed to cover the back patio with grass and add two wooden decks that offer expansive views of the city.
The swimming pool.
The modern house.
Glass walls and skylights brighten up the three-story floor plan, which was designed by the Fu Wilmers Design firm of architects. At 5,500 square feet, there are four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a handful of open-plan living areas.
A floating staircase leads to the lower level, where an entertaining space adds a bar, gym, wine room and cinema. Outside, a spiral staircase connects the two decks.
Jamison Malone of Compass arranged both sides of the deal.
Parsons, 33, earned SEC Player of the Year honors in Florida before being selected in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft by the Houston Rockets. He played stints with the Mavericks, Grizzlies and Hawks before being hit by a drunk driver in 2020 and sustaining injuries that ended his season.
The big man is no stranger to big sales, raking in $12.35 million in 2019 for his Bel-Air ranch with a basketball court.
