Luol Deng Of The LA Lakers Dropped 6.1 Million On This 6,500 SQ FT Brentwood Mansion
While I was on TheOpenHouse, gawking at this house that Luol Deng just bought I noticed this under the photos: “The estimated cost to live here is $30,178 per month.” Nice little $360,000 per year carrying cost. Obviously that is chump change to a guy like Deng, but it’s also a disgusting reminder that I will never be that rich. And really, that’s all I ever get out of these real estate porn posts. A healthy dose of self-loathing and self-pity.
So this mansion. It’s nice. I guess. It has 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a pool, 1,000 sf roof deck with views of the city and ocean, but it’s seriously lacking a man cave. Where’s the basketball court, the movie theater, the putting green, the golf simulator? If I’m dropping $6.1 million on a house, that fucking thing better come EQUIPPED.
You know what? I take back all the nice things I said. As it stands, the thing is a complete tear down. Start from scratch and build a new house around a state of the art golf facility. That’s what I would do if I were Deng.
