Chris Webber's Malibu Dream Home up for Grabs

The NBA superstar and basketball commentator recently cut the price of his Malibu modern by close to $350,000 and stands to take a loss on the multimillion dollar property. We personally think it's a bargain.

Back in February 2014 Chris Webber quietly put his Malibu modern on the market with an asking price under $4 million, a rare find for the exclusive area. The five-time NBA All Star, who retired from the sport in 2008, bought the three-bedroom, three-bath property around 2006 while he was suiting up for the Philadelphia 76ers.

His 15-year career ended with the Golden State Warriors and C Webb embarked on a career in sports casting. After being hired by Atlanta-based NBA TV and TNT Sports, Webber spent half of his time at his home in Tyrone, GA., and the other half at the Malibu home – two incredibly different atmospheres.

Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains high above Highway One, Webber’s Malibu home is a sleek and sexy one-story modern with jaw-dropping views of the Pacific Ocean. The 3,000-square-foot white stucco features hardwood floors, a lap pool and a huge deck for entertaining. Oscar winner Sally Field lives within egg-borrowing distance. Alicia LaMar, whose clients include Denzel Washington, Eddie Murphy and Solange, decorated the home in neutral tones and custom details around every corner.

We love the open kitchen with dark wood cabinetry and its island with plenty of room to seat eight guests. The sliding glass doors to the right of the space allow for ocean views and sea breezes as well as access to the large deck, Webber’s favorite spot. On the opposite end of the home is a large master bedroom that has access to the rear courtyard and lap pool. This layout provides the homeowner complete privacy and peace.

By contrast, Webber’s gated Tyrone traditional-style home is located on an astounding 140-acres; boasts a full-sized basketball court, a putting green, a pool with waterfall and a guesthouse. The home is also convenient to the Atlanta airport and nearby Serenbe where he and his wife, Erika, enjoy quiet weekends. It is also where the couple was married in 2009.

Webber’s career as a sports analyst has picked up steam over the years, and with Charles Barkley threatening retirement, we speculate that it’s time for the family to settle on a coast. The asking price was recently dropped by almost $350,000. You can see more details at Coldwell Banker.
