A Breakdown Of Kevin Durant's Current & Future OKC Abodes (Photos)
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is widely known for being one of the very best basketball players in the world. Within the pages of iFolloSports.com, the three-time NBA scoring champion has been extensively chronicled for being perhaps the classist and most fan-friendly star athlete in all of sports. Now, as the 24-year-old gets set to take the court for his seventh professional season, the hoops icon's real estate activities have made its way into the news cycle. With this situation in mind, below is a breakdown of the mansion that Durant has recently put on the market, as well as some details regarding his current and future Oklahoma City places of residence.
Durant has listed his five-bedroom, four-bathroom OKC abode for $1.95 million. Located in the gated Club Villa development, which surrounds the Gaillardia Golf and Country Club, the 5,545 square-foot mansion comes equipped with a pool, guest house, home theater and state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel appliances (pictures here). The estate sits 13 miles north of the Chesapeake Energy Arena and 6 miles north of the Thunder's practice facility.
Durant has made the decision to trade the space and privacy of the suburbs for that of a more urban based OKC existence. At the present time, the four-time All-Star is leasing a condo in downtown OKC's Deep Deuce neighborhood. Once his lease expires, Durant intends to move into what will be a 7,400-square-foot townhouse (also in Deep Deuce), which resulted from the combining of two, three-story townhomes. The Washington D.C. native purchased the dual complexes for $1,769 million.
Durant's downtown OKC habitation places him less than a mile from his team's home arena, as well as in close proximity to his soon-to-be opened restaurant, KD's. The upscale Southern cuisine establishment will reside in the Lower Bricktown area of the city.
With three years remaining on his current contract, combined with an ever increasing athletic and commercial connection to the Sooner State, it sure seems like one of the NBA's most likeable and dynamic players will continue to knock down jump shots in the capital city of Oklahoma for many years to come.
