Lakers owner Jeanie Buss has a brand new home within the clean, tech-centric confines of Playa Vista, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Situated within a community of single-family residences and townhomes, the house has a Spanish-style design, with white stucco sides, arched entryways, and barrel tile roofing.

Built in 2011, the house was listed in October for $2.5 million, and Buss snagged it for just under $2.45 million.

The daughter of longtime Lakers owner Jerry Buss, Jeanie Buss ousted her brother, Jim, and seized control of the team earlier this year.

It’s not clear whether Buss plans to live in the new home, but it would be an easy commute to the team’s new headquarters in El Segundo. The 120,000-square-foot facility opened in July.

Featuring four bedrooms and five bathrooms spread across nearly 3,200 square feet of living space, the home has three floors and an attached garage. The lower-level living room opens to a grassy yard, and a spacious balcony on the second floor is accessed from the open kitchen and dining area.

The home also comes with access to a host of community-wide amenities, including a fitness center and multiple pools and park spaces.

It’s a nice place, but it’s certainly no Pickfair—the iconic home where Buss spent many of her formative years. Built for screen icons Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, the Wallace Neff-designed estate was purchased by Jerry Buss in 1979 and served as the site of many wild parties over the next decade.
