Ex-NBA player, WNBA player list home for sale

sheldon_williams_candice_parkerWNBA MVP Candace Parker and her husband, former NBA player Shelden Williams, listed their four-bedroom home in the Playa Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles for $1.499 million, Yahoo! reported.

“They enlarged the shower to accommodate two people over 6 feet tall,” said The Agency’s Kofi Natei Nartey, who holds the listing for the couple’s home. “It can probably fit five to six people.”

The couple bought the contemporary Mediterranean home in L.A.’s Playa Vista neighborhood in 2008.

Williams played in the NBA for 9 seasons, for Atlanta Hawks, Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, NY Knicks and New Jersey Nets.

He averaged career high 5.5 ppg and 5.4 rpg for Atlanta in his rookie 2006-07 season. Williams appeared in total 361 NBA games (104 started), averaging 4.5 ppg and 4.3 rpg in 15.5 mpg.

“Our family loved its convenience and community,” said Parker, who plays for the Los Angeles Sparks. “Playa provided us with a great environment to raise our daughter and walk our dogs!”

After five years, the couple have decided to list the home at 13077 Kiyot Way for $1.499 million — $280,000 less than they bought it for, but still on the high end for the Playa Vista real estate market.

“They purchased another [Southern California] home with more room to grow as a family,” Nartey explained.

But with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, the house they’re leaving behind is anything but small.

“It’s one of the largest homes in the development,” Nartey said. “That’s why it’s a little more [expensive] than others in the area.”

“We’re under $400 per square foot, and homes have sold for well into the $400 range in the area,” Nartey said. “Also, it’s one of a few free-standing homes in the neighborhood — several have shared walls.”

Other highlights of the home include an open floor plan with a large entertaining space, dark hardwood floors on the main level and several archways.
