Former NBA forward Vladimir Radmanovic has been keeping a relatively low profile since his retirement in 2013. However, the ex-Laker’s name just popped up when he put his gleaming Santa Monica modern home on the rental market for a healthy $25,000 per month.
The five-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house truly scores—it’s within walking distance to Will Rogers State Beach and its storied beach volleyball courts, where you can always get in the game.
Radmanovic bought the three-level modern home for $3,475,000 in 2006, when he was playing with the Lakers. Although he bounced around the NBA after leaving the Lakers in 2009, he held on to his Santa Monica home. It’s turned out to be an excellent investment, especially if he manages to net tens of thousands in monthly rent.
It’s being offered fully furnished, with showy designer pieces, a state-of-the-art entertainment system, and high-end appliances.
You don’t even need to bring your own cue to rack ’em up on the chrome-legged pool table. However, you might want to bring your own libations to stock the sleek bar in the spacious game room.
The 4,250-square-foot house takes up a good deal of space on the terraced lot, but the outdoor areas are well planned, with intimate seating arrangements bordered by lush, colorful landscaping.
A set of steep brick steps leads up to another outdoor seating area with an excellent view. And speaking of views, the rooftop party deck, equipped with a barbecue and table for eight, has jaw-dropping vistas of sunny SoCal.
The bedrooms are all sun-filled, thanks to an abundance of windows that let in plenty of natural light. Then, the numerous floor-to-ceiling windows and sliders that lead out to a private patio make the master bedroom especially bright. A fireplace keeps it cozy, and a marble-tiled bathroom (plus an extremely spacious walk-in closet) keep it practical.
Radmanovic, 38, began his NBA sojourn in 2001, after being drafted by the Seattle Supersonics. The forward from Serbia went on to play 12 seasons in the league, for a variety of teams. He’s estimated to have made $43 million over the course of his NBA career.
