What is inside Rui Hachimura’s $7.2 million house?

Originally listed at just under $7.5 million, records show that the state-of-the-art property was bought by the historic forward for a discounted price of $7.2 million.

The property is an exquisite modern farmhouse-style residence nestled in the sought-after locale of Encino that effortlessly marries style and comfort.

The residence spans about 7,350 square feet, consisting of six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The interior compliments all its contemporary elegance, adorned with brushed natural stones, carbon cold-rolled steel, white oak, Douglas fir, Ceppo di Gre limestone, and striking gunmetal finishes to top it all.

Besides the two-tone gray and charcoal exterior, the property is placed at the end of a cul-de-sac, which is secured within a walled and gated third-of-an-acre parcel. The driveway leads to an attached three-car garage.

The interior starts with an entry hallway that leads to an office with built-in shelving and a living room that spills onto an enclosed patio with a firepit, providing the perfect cozy retreat.

The highlights of the main level include a wet bar-equipped dining room, a spacious family room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and two outdoor spaces designed for al fresco lounging.

The backyard, also known as Hachimura’s haven, is landscaped with olive and Italian cypress trees and includes a pool and spa, sundeck, kitchen, barbecue setup, and fireside lounge area.

Rui Hachimura’s Lakers contract

The first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft from Japan, Rui Hachimura was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers as a rising star forward. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Lakers inked a deal with their forward Rui Hachimura, securing his talents for a three-year extension that is worth over $51 million.

The 25-year-old Hachimura, who entered the offseason as a restricted free agent, made a remarkable performance during the Lakers’ Western Conference playoff run, averaging 12.2 points per post-season game, with 48.7% shooting from beyond the arc and an overall field goal percentage of 55.7%.

During the regular season, the 6’8” forward kept up the consistency with an average of 9.6 points per game on 48.5% shooting in 33 games.

Hachimura’s unique skill set, accompanied by decent mid-range skills and a wingspan of 7’2″, provides the Lakers’ head coach Darvin Ham with versatility in the lineup configurations, contributing to the Lakers’ small-ball strategies with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
