Steph and Ayesha Curry have found a buyer for their Walnut Creek mansion, but apparently won’t be cashing in on the red-hot market trend of Bay Area homes selling well above their listing prices.
The Daily Mail reports that the Golden State Warriors star and his celebrity chef wife are selling their home for $3.2 million. The listing with Caldecott Properties only indicates that a sale is pending. Agent Andy Read would only say in an email that the Daily Mail report is “riddled with errors” but wouldn’t confirm the amount of a possible sale or what those errors are.
The couple originally paid $3.2 million for the 7,520-square-foot mansion in November 2015. Socket Site reported in late June that the couple had cut the price to $3.195, a significant reduction from October 2016 when they originally listed the house for $3.7 million.
The Currys also invested $400,000 into upgrading the kitchen, which Ayesha used to film her Food Network series “Ayesha’s Homemade,” and to rebuild the master bath with a walk-in steam shower and therapeutic soaking tub, Socket Site reported.
To some observers, the house was in a curious location for the superstar athlete — on a cul-de-sac south of downtown Walnut Creek, just a few blocks off an Interstate 680 exit and with its backyard sloping down to a major thoroughfare.
The Currys, who have two young children, reportedly had concerns about fans invading their privacy, so they decamped to a more secluded — and larger — property in Alamo, located behind big gates.
There’s been some back and forth over the selling of the property. The Currys first put it on the market in October for $3.7 million but then withdrew it so that Ayesha could use it for filming her Food Network show.
The home then went back on market in May with an asking price of $3.5 million which was then reduced to $3.395 million in early June and finally to $3.195 million in late June.
If the Currys are selling for less than the originally paid — plus their upgrades — that may not be of much consequence to the family, given that the 29-year-old megastar, fresh off the Warriors’ second NBA championship in three years, recently agreed to a five-year deal with the Warriors worth around $201 million.
According to the Caldecott Properties website, the “splendid” Walnut Creek home was built in 2006 and sits on a lot lined with mature olive and cypress trees. With “a bright and airy interior,” the home features five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar. The property also has a “casita” tucked into a corner of the near-acre lot that comes with a private bathroom, kitchen and garage.
