Tristan Thompson reportedly bought a house near Khloe Kardashian – DIRT
The Kardashian family tradition of keep ex-partners close apparently continues. According to The sunrecords show Tristan Thompson bought a substantial estate that is practically 3 points from Khloe Kardashian’s newly completed mansion. Situated on a 1.39 acre lot in Hidden Hills, the large home cost the NBA player $12.5 million, a hefty sum secured through a nearly $9 million mortgage.
Newly built in 2010, the traditionally East Coast-inspired residence was sold for $9 million the same year to car dealership magnate Howard Keyes, former owner of Keyes Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Toyota, Lexus, Hyundai and Honda in Van Nuys, CA
Keyes, 80, apparently spent little time at the property. From 2014 to 2017, the vacant home was for sale at prices ranging between $8.7 million and $10.7 million, though those numbers failed to attract a buyer. But Hidden Hills home values have skyrocketed in recent years, and when the mansion was relisted this year at $13 million, it wasn’t long before Thompson called.
A sizable parking area that can accommodate more than 10 cars faces the lavish home, which offers six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms on more than 10,000 square feet. Three short flights of stone stairs lead to the front door, which opens into a spacious double-height hall defined by its black and white checkerboard stone floor and topped with a massive crystal chandelier. Immediately after that, the floors switch to brown hardwood in the living room, which connects to a formal dining room and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
There are not one but two islands in the chef’s kitchen, which is equipped with high-end appliances and a butler’s pantry. Via large sliding doors, the adjacent family room opens to a loggia with ample space for outdoor entertaining. Elsewhere on the main level are also a library, billiard room with bar, hexagonal breakfast room, movie theater and maid’s quarters, plus an attached five-car garage.
Upstairs, the master bedroom features two dedicated seating areas, as well as a private balcony overlooking the estate’s lush gardens. Awash in expensive stone, the two master bathrooms feature soaking tubs and connect to double walk-in closets with bespoke finishes.
Lined with rose gardens, mature trees, and grassy lawns, the backyard makes for an elegant resort, despite being located deep in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. According to the listing, Keyes recently spent a substantial sum upgrading and adding to the estate’s extensive outdoor amenities, installing an all-new covered cabana with a fireplace, an all-new barbecue center and an all-new sports field with a basket of basketball – perfect for Thompson’s home practice.
If Keyes’ last name sounds vaguely familiar to you, it’s probably because his ex-wife, Australian-born Margie Keyes, recently sold hers. Hidden Hills Mansion to Sylvester Stallone.
Thompson, 31, who shares two of her four children with Kardashian, previously played for the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA free agent also belonged an Encino compound he bought in 2019 for $6.5 million and sold last spring for nearly $8 million.
