If there was any doubt about Steph Curry’s desire to remain with Golden State for the long term, here’s something to remove it. Shortly after the 2016 season came to a close, the Warriors star and reigning league MVP paid $5.775 million for another estate in the suburbs of San Francisco’s East Bay.
Located behind gates in Alamo, the traditional-style estate sits at the end of a cul-de-sac on a street lined with lighted olive trees. The property includes a main house, a detached guest house, a six-car garage, a formal garden and an infinity-edge swimming pool.
The main house, built in 2006, features a library, a billiards room and a chef’s kitchen with an oversized, horseshoe-shaped island. A freestanding two-way fireplace sits between the formal living and dining rooms. Copper finishes and custom racks highlight a climate-controlled wine cellar.
Across the grounds, the guest house has two en suite bedrooms and a Finnish spa. In all, there are five bedroom, 8.5 bathrooms and five fireplaces in more than 10,000 square feet of living space.
Outdoors, the park-like setting is filled with various patios, fountains, lawns and landscaping. A small path leads to a large play area, and an outdoor pavilion is outfitted with a kitchen. There’s also a 1,700-gallon well that provides irrigation for the roughly 1.5-acre grounds.
The property came to market last year for $7.288 million and was more recently priced at $5.98 million, records show.
Carolyn Gwynn of Paragon Real Estate Group was the listing agent. Christian Carrigg of Proximity Real Estate represented the buyer.
Curry has been in buy and sell mode of late. Late last year, he and wife Ayesha paid $3.2 million for an 8,000-square-foot home in the Walnut Creek area. This past June, the couple turned a tidy profit on their Orinda home, selling the vineyard property for $4.65 million, $755,000 over the asking price.
The 28-year-old point guard notched his second Most Valuable Player award last year, hitting a record 402 three-pointers during the regular season. He is entering the final year of a bargain four-year, $44 million contract he signed in 2012. His next deal is expected to be in the ballpark of $165 million, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
