What befits a professional basketball player most? A stylish, Mediterranean-inspired estate resting on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana. These opulent quarters are the “nest” to retired NBA Hornets player P.J. Brown and his family in a stately gated enclave.
The Browns called it home while he hit the hoops in his 15-year career. With more than 13,000 square feet of living space, this seven-bedroom home is outfitted with every luxury including a theater, beauty parlor and six-car garage.
Marble floors, soaring ceilings, a glass elevator, and a curving staircase make for a dramatic entrance.
The sprawling open floor plan includes formal living and dining rooms, gourmet contemporary kitchen with racing-car red cabinets, trophy and game room with built in bar and more.
The grounds include a natural rock pool with built in slide and swim up tiki bar, private dock, lift for boat and multiple jet skis, and a basketball court.
This property is listed for $4.5 million with Gardner Realtors and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
