Back on September 4, 2014, the fine folks at Trulia Luxe Living revealed that NBA star and LA native DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors purchased a Tarzana mansion in the celebrity filled gated Mulholland Park community for $3,752,500 on August 20, 2014.
The home measures 7 Beds/8 Baths on 6,609 sqft on a total lot size of 1.07 acres built in 1995. The property is somewhat unique for the community as its actually spread over two parcels with the home on one parcel measuring 17,543 sqft and the pool, basketball court, and backyard on a second parcel measuring 28,778 sqft although some of this land is not usable. There is always the possibility to subdivide and built another home on the second lot but would be two small homes next to each other (relatively speaking for this area) that makes the investment questionable. The listing description states:
Guard Gated Mullholland Park! Plan 6 that sits on one of the best lots in the development, almost 1 acre flat. This house was remodeled throughout 2 years ago. Dual staircase, distressed wood floors, media room, kitchen with double island, top of the line stainless steel appliances, family room with beamed ceilings, kitchen opens to outdoor covered patio and fireplace, large formal dining area, living room with high ceilings, fireplace, and doors that open to the backyard, office, maids and laundry room. All bedrooms are suites, huge master retreat w/ sitting area, balcony, 2 closets and an INCREDIBLE master bathroom with soaking tub and steam shower. The backyard has rolling lawns, full sports court, large sparkling pool and spa with slide, covered dining, and loggia. This is a great opportunity to live in One of the Best houses in Mulholland Park!
DeRozan is a LA native born in Compton where he played at the local High School as well as attending USC. He was drafted 9th overall in 2009 by the Toronto Raptors. In addition to the newly purchased Tarzana home, DeRozen also owns a Baldwin Hills house that was purchased on September 13, 2010 for $789,000 and a Las Vegas home that was purchased on June 12, 2013 for $519,000.
