Exclusive photos: Inside LeBron James's new Los Angeles house

When Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James appeared in the summer comedy Trainwreck, critics were impressed with his acting chops and his knack for comedy. Maybe he's thinking about a few more film roles: Variety revealed last week that James has just bought himself a classy mansion in Los Angeles's fancy Brentwood neighborhood.

The 9,350-square-foot house was custom built by "mansion specialist" Ken Ungar in 2011 for a real estate developer, his wife, and their family. The house wasn't listed on the open market, but Curbed has gotten its hands on photos of the house taken a few years back; you can just mentally superimpose the 6'8" James into them.

In a 2013 interview, the residence's then-owners said that the design of the place avoided "abnormally high ceilings," which seems like something that should be a requirement for a basketball player's house, but apparently not. Of the house's six bedrooms, the master bedroom is predictably the coolest, with a dual-sided fireplace, a marble bathroom, and a private terrace.

The grounds include a pool, a cabana, and a deck. Photos also show the house's two spacious backyard patios, which overlook a grassy, "compact" yard. James dropped $20.99 million on the place, according to the LA Times.
