After a couple of years on and off the market, the lavish Hidden Hills, California, home of Brooklyn Nets point guard Ben Simmons is headed to auction. Vertical strips of multihued reclaimed wood, gray brick, and glass panels give the house a decidedly masculine feel; paired with plush amenities like a 65-foot swimming pool, a movie theater, and a well-equipped home gym, it has all the classic trappings of a professional athlete’s luxury bachelor pad.

Located on a guard-gated plot at the end of a cul-de-sac, the 12,000-square-foot modern farmhouse-style estate hosts seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. A guesthouse with its own plunge pool offers an additional fireplace-equipped bedroom.

Illuminated by integrated lighting, vaulted wooden ceilings with exposed steel beams soar 40 feet above black marble floors in the abode’s great room. A 6,000-pound floating brass-and-marble fireplace separates the living room and formal dining space, which is lit by a pair of oversized futuristic chandeliers. Other highlights include a bonsai tree and Zen garden built into the base of a staircase, a hidden chef’s kitchen, and a poolside cabana with a fireplace.

On April 30, the highest bidder will claim the home, which was most recently listed for $17.5 million.

Simmons was the first owner of the 2021 build, designed by Nobel LA, when he picked it up for $17.5 million in June 2021. One year later—shortly after being traded from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Nets—the Australia native listed the mansion for $23 million. “This is a beautiful home that I’ve enjoyed, but because I spend most of my time on the East Coast, sadly, it often goes unused,” Simmons said in a press release. “It’s time to move on.”
