One of the household names in the NBA world, Kevin Durant has had a long and successful career. His performance on the court translated into the eye-popping paychecks he has received throughout his professional journey. Highly paid athletes often lead a healthy and comfortable lifestyle to maximize performance and KD is no exception to that.
One of his previous abodes has been on the market for rent and has an interior worthy of an NBA superstar, along with a special touch from KD himself.
Kevin Durant’s former home up for rent
The Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant’s former condo is up for renting. The per month rent of the Miami penthouse is $22,000 which the former MVP owned for around four years.
He bought the 3,500 square ft. house in 2011 at $1.8 million when he played for the Oklahoma City Thunder. There is a movie theatre in the house which he got customized as per his preference. The lavish suite has a beautiful dining space, a bar, a high-end kitchen, ample living space, 3 bedrooms, window walls and a terrace with mesmerizing views of Biscayne Bay & the Miami Beach skyline.
“It’s the perfect space for entertaining and impressing guests,” said Marko Gojanovic of MR Luxury Group at ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
The 2-time NBA Champion sold the house in 2015 for almost double the price at $3.15 million. The apartment is currently in the listing of Gojanovic and Reid Heidenry.
“The layout seamlessly flows between spaces from the dining area and kitchen to the terraces and family room,” said Marko describing the apartment. “There is still quite a bit of demand for high-end luxury products,” the Real Estate agent further said. “And people are willing to pay premium prices for spacious penthouses in a building with abundant amenities.”
