NBA’s Ben Simmons looking to flip his Hidden Hills mansion

Fresh from a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers to the Brooklyn Nets, Aussie NBA star Ben Simmons is now looking to offload his Hidden Hills mansion in LA for US$23 Million.

Simmons has only owned the estate for less than a year and is hoping to make a tidy US$5.5 million profit on the deal, according to The Dirt

The 1.5-acre gated home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and is crafted to look like a modern farmhouse, combining vertical reclaimed wood siding and charcoal-hued brick.

The property features seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms across 1114sq m of living space, along with two pools, a guesthouse, gym, and three-car garage.

Spacious rooms are located throughout the home with marble and hardwood floors, oak panelling, exposed steel-beam ceilings, designer lighting, and walls of glass.

One of the main features of the property is the great room that contains a dramatic two-way “floating” fireplace clad in marble and brass.

On one side of the fireplace is a living room offering a huge picture window and automated Fleetwood glass doors that open to a patio.

The other side hosts a dining room fitted with a pair of custom metal chandeliers plus a temperature-controlled wine wall and tucked-away catering kitchen with commercial-grade appliances.

The elegantly designed kitchen includes glass burners and a pop-up vent integrated into the marble island, as well as a dining area, walk-in pantry and an office with a full bath.

A curving staircase connects the two levels, where a sky bridge leads to a master retreat with a fireplace and designer showroom closet. 

Simmons recently sold his New Jersey mansion to Philadelphia Phillies right fielder Nick Castellanos for US$4.6 million.
