Kobe and Vanessa Bryant's Former Irvine, Calif. Investment Home Back Up for Sale for $2.6M
Kobe and Vanessa Bryant's former investment home is up for sale once again, this time for $2.6 million.
In October 2020, PEOPLE reported that the mom of four had sold the Irvine, Calif. property she owned with her late husband for $2 million, after having put it on the market for $1.995 million just a week earlier.
Now, PEOPLE, can confirm the home is up for sale again, less than six month later, listed for $2.6 million with Joele Romeo and Matt Marneau of Pacific Sotheby's International Realty. According to the Los Angeles Times, the owners put nearly $200,000 into remodeling the home before putting it back on the market.
The single-story residence, which Kobe and Vanessa bought in 2013, is a few miles away from Vanessa's main home in Newport Coast. It sits on a cul-de-sac inside the gated community of Summit at Turtle Ridge.
The Tuscan-inspired property has over 2,300 square feet of living space, three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The living room leads into a spacious kitchen complete with a large limestone island with a Spanish tile backsplash, the Times reports.
Lush greenery surrounds the brick home that also includes a stone patio with a brick fireplace and an in-ground spa.
In September, another home with ties to the late Lakers player was listed for sale: his childhood home outside Philadelphia. The listing marked the first time the home had been on the market since his parents sold it in 2008.
The NBA legend, who tragically died in a helicopter crash in January 2020, spent much of his childhood abroad in Rieti, Italy, where his dad was playing professional basketball, but moved back to the U.S. when he was 13. When the family relocated to Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, they moved into the Colonial-style house where Kobe spent his middle and high school years.
That house was listed for $899,900 with David Wyher of Compass. Property records show it sold in November for $810,000.
