Basketball star Kwame Brown -- who plays center for the Detroit Pistons and who played for the Los Angeles Lakers from 2005 until early 2008 -- has placed his four-bedroom house in Playa del Rey, Calif. on the market for $2,999,000.


In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Brown's listing of the 6,329-square-foot house in Playa del Rey, which came on the market on November 28. The asking price is noteworthy, since Brown paid $3,375,000 for the house on August 25, 2005 (deal recorded on August 30, 2005), according to public records.


Built in 1989, the house has four and a half baths, high ceilings, wood floors, French doors, a camera security system, flat-screen TVs, custom stone floors and a large master suite with a fireplace, a sitting room with built-in cabinets and desk areas with ocean views, according to public records and listing information. Other features in the house include a gourmet kitchen with a breakfast bar that seats eight to 10 people and that opens into the dining room and living room, an office, a den, a fireplace in the living room, and a large master bath with a shower, two walk-in closets and a spa, according to listing information.

Brown's house sits on a minuscule, 0.13-acre (5,558-square-foot) lot, according to public records.

This appears to be the only house that Brown currently owns. He sold a house in Jacksonville, Fla. for $440,000 in July 2007, according to public records.
