The power forward Tristan Thompson is bouncing from his Bratenahl, Ohio, home. The waterfront contemporary, built in 2008 on the shores of Lake Erie, is now available for $3.25 million.
After spending nine seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Thompson inked a deal with the Boston Celtics in November 2020. Now, he’s ready to leave his Ohio home in his rearview mirror.
Purchased in 2015 for $1.9 million, the home is located in an exclusive gated community. With only 25 homes available on the market, Thompson’s residence is easily the most expensive home currently available in Bratenahl, which has a median home price of $425,000. Linda Musarra with Chestnut Hill Realty holds the listing.
The “impeccable” home spans 6,424 square feet and offers “every luxury and upgrade imaginable,” the listing description gushes.
Inside, walls of glass overlook water views in every room. An open living and dining area adjoin a modern kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line appliances. The space also features a formal dining room and plenty of storage, with cabinetry and a wine fridge.
With five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, plus two half-bathrooms, the spacious accommodations include an “owner’s wing” outfitted with a luxe bathroom, a walk-in closet, a sitting area and a balcony.
The second floor also features two more bathrooms, and an in-law suite with a kitchen and private entrance. On the third floor, you’ll find a guest suite and an office that overlooks the water.
A walkout lower level includes indoor entertainment galore, with billiards, poker, a home theater, full bar, wine cellar, exercise room and full bathroom.
The half-acre grounds include a patio as well as a three-car garage.
The Ohio abode is just the latest of Thompson’s real estate moves.
The father of Khloé Kardashian’s daughter, True, also reportedly placed his Encino, Calif., home on the market, only a year after buying it. The residence is close to Kardashian’s Calabasas home, which she recently sold in an off-market deal for $15.5 million.
The couple, who have had an on-again, off-again relationship, have reportedly been quarantining — and touring potential new residences — together.
The NBA star listed the Encino home in July 2020 for $8.5 million, a hefty jump from his purchase price of $6.5 million the previous year. He apparently added some of his own touches to the upscale, marble-filled interiors.
The opulent seven-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom modern farmhouse features almost 10,000 feet of living space. The spread features high ceilings, oak floors, and formal living and dining rooms.
The high-end kitchen includes Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, two stone counters and a breakfast nook, and adjoins a family room with a fireplace. The lavish master suite includes two bathrooms and two closets.
Outdoors, the half-acre lot features an outdoor kitchen, bar, pool and spa, and a fire pit with built-in seating, as well as a guesthouse. The spread is still on the market, with the $8.5 million price tag. Tomer Fridman with Compass holds the listing.
The 29-year-old Canadian was drafted by the Cavaliers in 2011. In 2016, he was a member of the team led by LeBron James that finally brought a championship win to Cleveland.
