Basketball coaches on the move

 

Los Angeles Times

L.A. area basketball coaches are seeing a lot of off-court action these days.

Now that the Lakers are out of the playoffs, head coach Mike D'Antoni, 61, can turn his attention to moving into the house he and his wife, Laurel, just bought in Manhattan Beach for $6.9 million and working on his tan.

Set on a walk street, the ocean-view home features a three-stop cherry-paneled elevator, which should come in handy for carting beverages from the 2,000-bottle basement wine cellar to the 400-glass wine bar on the top floor. The open-plan house, built in 2003, includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 5,000 square feet of living space.

The D'Antonis have listed their Colonial-style home in Rye, N.Y. at $6.95 million. The 7,142-square-foot home features seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

Meanwhile, Cleveland-bound former Lakers head coach Mike Brown, 43, and his wife, Carolyn, have listed their house in a gated Anaheim Hills community for $3.75 million.

The Mediterranean-style house, built in 1990 and later remodeled, features decorative leaded-glass doors, a wood-paneled library/office, a sports bar, a built-in aquarium and 9,503 square feet of living space. There are six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.

The nearly three-quarters-of-an-acre site includes a tennis/basketball court and a saltwater pool with a rock waterfall and a water slide.

The Browns bought the home in 2011 for $3 million.

And former UCLA basketball coach Ben Howland and his wife, Kim, have listed their home in a gated Bel-Air neighborhood for $1,899,950.

Built in 1999, the stone-clad home features an elevator, a home theater, five bedrooms, four bathrooms and close to 4,700 square feet of living space. The nearly half-acre lot includes a pool with a spa, a covered patio and a barbecue center.

CAILLAT CRIB

A family home of pop singer Colbie Caillat is on the market in Tarzana at $1.399 million.

Owned by her father, Grammy-winning record producer Ken Caillat, the French-style house was once featured on MTV's Cribs.

The 3,701-square-foot house, built in 1995, features high ceilings, a media room, a den, a crafts room, four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. There is a lagoon-style pool on the more than half-an-acre of grounds.

Colbie Caillat, 27, is a singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist. The property previously sold in 2008 for $1.2 million, public records show.

Features include a two-story entry with a sweeping staircase, herringbone-patterned wood floors, a media room with a bar, two offices, a library, a wine cellar and a gym/dance studio.
