A house in Los Angeles’ Bel-Air neighborhood that once belonged to the late basketball great Wilt Chamberlain is available for $10.5 million after having been listed last year for $11.5 million, according to listing information.
Built in 1971, the five-bedroom, 7,158-square-foot contemporary-style house at 15216 Antelo Place in Bel-Air was built by Chamberlain, who lived there until his death in 1999. TV writers George Meyer and Maria Semple purchased the house from Chamberlain’s estate in 2002 for nearly $3 million, and have owned it ever since. The house has attracted much attention over the years—both with this listing and in 2000-2002, when Chamberlain’s estate was trying to unload it, first for $7.45 million and later reducing its asking price to $4.38 million. The house’s unconventional (some might say tacky) features include a gold-lined hot tub, a retractable mirrored ceiling above the master bed, a swimming pool that flows into the living room, walls of glass, 40-foot ceilings, a wrap-around pool, and a balcony suspended over the living room, according to listing information. Other features include five and a half baths and teak finishes, according to listing information.
The house sits on a 2.58-acre parcel that has ocean and city views, according to public records and listing information.

The street has had other celebrities living on it, but to call it “celebrity-lined,” as listing information does, is a bit of a stretch. Farrah Fawcett has been the most well-known resident of the street in recent years. She and her longtime boyfriend Ryan O’Neal sold their 2,867-square-foot house on 2.41 acres at 15220 Antelo Place in 1999 for close to $2.7 million, according to public records and the Los Angeles Times.
