Playing in his fifth NBA city, Sacramento Kings guard Darren Collison is putting down roots in Granite Bay. A week before Christmas, Collison and his wife, Keyosha, purchased a four-bedroom, four-bath home for $1.375 million.
“That was the one caveat; the buyer wanted to be in for Christmas,” said listing agent Debbie Sax, who specializes in luxury home sales for Re/Max Gold of Roseville.
Closed Dec. 18, the sale became public this week.
With high ceilings and an open feel, the country French-style home sits on 1 acre, tucked away on a very private cul-de-sac.

“That’s one of the reasons they liked this house,” Sax said. “They have their privacy and they’re very private people.”
But there’s a lot to like about this home, she added. “The key things is that it had just one owner and had been meticulously maintained over the years. It has everything; a beautiful pool, three-car garage, a big private garden, a big bonus room, spectacular decks and a beautiful open floor plan.”
Built in 2003, the 5,100-square-foot two-story house features an expansive country kitchen with oak cabinets and granite counters, a large game room with wet bar, and many other amenities. The home overlooks a large Mediterranean-inspired pool with waterfall plus patios made for entertaining with a well-equipped outdoor kitchen, hot tub and fire pit.
Collison, 27, joined the Kings in July when he signed a three-year, $16 million contract. A Southern California native, the NBA veteran previously had played for the New Orleans Hornets, Indiana Pacers, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers.
