Cuttino Mobley's House, Estate of the Day
The fabulous Real Estalker Mama led us to the listing for NBA star Cuttino Mobley's house in Beverly Hills. Mobley, who plays for the LA Clippers, has put his five-bedroom home on the market. Mobley came to the Clippers in 2005 and bought the house for $3,650,000. Also in 2005, Mobley's home was robbed of $500,000 in cash, jewelry and other items. I wasn't able to tell if this was the house that was robbed but given its private location with those hills surrounding it, it seems to be the type of location that the band of thieves which has prayed on the rich and famous in the area are prone to strike in. The home is the classic celebrity new build, faux Tuscan with large bathrooms with separate tubs and vitrine-like showers, plasma screens everywhere. The small backyard includes a modest pool and a spa surrounded with cobalt blue tile. Given the price, $3,995,000, it does not look, as our Real Estalker Mama astutely pointed out, that Mobley will be making much money on the deal. Often when a player is looking for a quick sale it means a trade is in the offing. This doesn't seem to be the case in Mobley's case but I have to wonder where Mobley is headed to.
