He has toned down his act a bit over the last few years, but there is no denying that Gilbert Arenas will go down as one of the quirkiest and colorful NBA personalities to grace hardwood (and Twitter) over the last decade. A player capable of amusing and aggravating his fans, teammates and employers alike in one fell swoop, Arenas is a different breed of cat, and it’s a pleasure to know that his patented ‘Agent Zero’ brand of peculiarity can be applied to all aspects of his life, including his real estate portfolio.
[ad#Google Adsense u tekstu]With his time in Washington having come to a close – Arenas was dealt to Orlando in 2011 and was later amnestied by the Magic – the former NBA All-Star, who last played for the Memphis Grizzlies, is apparently ready bid adieu to the DC area, listing his impressively Gilbert Arenas-esque manse in recent days for $3.5 million.
Arenas began construction on the Great Falls, VA estate shortly after becoming the Washington Wizards’ $111 million man, and NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas did not disappoint his design debut, literally throwing millions into amenities such as a world-class grotto and a shark tank (no word yet on whether his hyperbaric chamber can be negotiated into the deal). Beyond its more unique, “fantasy playground” features, the brick-lined property offers a whopping 9,042-square-feet of living space, with seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. Luxury finishes can be found throughout, including, but not limited to, cherry floors, vaulted ceilings and custom molding, while various parts of the home (grotto included) feature high-end entertainment centers.
