Donald Sterling Buys Beloved Beverly Hills Christmas House For $18.4 Million

A few secretly-recorded racist remarks might lose you your basketball team in this world, but decades of discriminatory practices will not lose you your real estate empire and Donald Sterling continues to collect. In addition to his dozens and dozens and dozens of ugly stucco apartment buildings (where he allegedly prefers not to rent to black people or Latinos), Sterling owns a handful of houses in Beverly Hills and has just picked up another, along with his wife Shelly, whom he is divorcing, reports the LA Times.

The house, on a 1.59-acre corner lot on Sunset Boulevard, was built in 1952 and comes with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a library, a guesthouse, a pool, and a wetbar. The Sterlings bought the house from Tom Whalley, the former head of Warner Bros. Records, who bought it in 2001 for $5.15 million; back in the eighties and nineties it was well-known for its Christmas decorations. The Sterlings paid $18.382 million.
