In summer 2018, legendary basketball player LeBron James signed a four-year, $153 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, signaling his official departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers and his hometown of Akron, Ohio. Prior to the switch, James bought a sizable mansion in Los Angeles's upscale Brentwood neighborhood for a cool $23 million, adding another home to his already impressive real estate portfolio, which includes another L.A. mansion and his Akron home.

Dubbed a "masterpiece of light and design" by Trulia, the eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom estate boasts an ultra-modern aesthetic, complete with marble countertops and walls, natural French oak floors sourced from Spain, and a neutral color palette focused on white. Built in 2017, the property houses a gated driveway, a custom chef's kitchen, showroom-level walk-in closets, a private patio in the master bedroom, rooftop terrace, theater room, wine cellar, cigar lounge, onyx bar, indoor/outdoor gym, spa (complete with steam room, sauna, shower, and massage room), oversized pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, guest quarters, and an "auto gallery"—a fancy name for a garage. Here's a tour of LeBron James' newest Los Angeles home.

The courtyard laid in concentric brick circles offers plenty of space for James' storied car collection that includes a Lamborghini Aventador, Porsche 911 Turbo S, and a restored 1975 Chevy Impala, according to Business Insider.

The airy kitchen scores with the gleaming French range, black and white bookend marble backsplash and matching island. The herringbone oak floor and burnished brass details on the lighting, range, and cabinetry add warmth.

The compact kitchen flows into a casual living space; just flip Phase Design's Bride's Veil counter stools around to bring the two rooms together. A unified pale color scheme like this makes any home seem more expansive.

Fine living in LA is all about bringing the outdoors in. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors trimmed in on-trend black steel give this sweeping living room a natural breeze, whether you're at the bar counter or on the sofa by the cozy fire.

The bedroom has a regal feel thanks to the massive bed and the furry decor. But the best feature may be the sunny sitting area with the curvy bean sofa and tree stump tables flanked by oversized artwork.

While this bath-with-a-view is minimal and sleek, walls swathed in full white and black marble slabs create maximum visual impact. With the freestanding platinum French slipper tub and the open room rain shower, it feels both luxe and natural.

Dreamy is the only word for this custom closet with room for a vast collection of Nike sneakers, Thom Browne suits, and hoodies. The showstopper is the jewelry and watch case where James' most prized timepiece—the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Tourbillon according to GQ—is sure to rest in a place of honor.

This serious-yet-light-filled office offers a subtle nod to Hollywood with the director-inspired chairs. It's perfect for taking pitch calls or examining your portfolio under the glow of Roll & Hill's chic Agnes chandelier.

The bar’s deeper color scheme creates an intimate, after-hours vibe while the glowing onyx bar adds understated wow factor. Cleverly placed mirrors always add a sense of depth and light, even in a mansion.

In such a calm, neutral-hued home, the vividly colored art flanking the bar signals this is the place to have some fun. But not too much lest you muss the shirred leather barstools.

The basketball star and his team can enjoy al fresco dining year-round on this grand covered patio with black-and-white marble terrazzo flooring.

If an art gallery and an upscale billiard hall had a love child, it would probably look a lot like this sophisticated gaming space.

A screening room is de rigueur for a sports celeb and this one doesn’t disappoint with its moody marbled bar, leather seating and wall-to-wall screen.

Mike Mancias, James’ trainer for 16 years, told Men’s Health that the basketball star’s workout has a few phases, so he needed a home gym with ample storage for weights plus foam rollers, mats, and balance balls. The overhead fan and black steel trimmed sliding doors keep it cool once he's ready for cardio and strength training portions of the workout.

Just imagine the backyard barbecues and pool parties he’ll host here. From the luxurious baths to the expansive living room to the well-appointed bar, James’ serene and modern California home is fit for a king.
