At 6’10” former Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant needed a home with a little extra headroom. He found just the right fit in this extraordinary home—designed to delight—and entertain.
Moreover, 4614-4616 Rockingham Court’s pedigree goes beyond the basketball court. At just under 9,100 sq.ft., the 7-bedroom, 8-bathroom open floorplan home offers a playground for big families—or big entertainers. This singular home has played host, center stage, and backdrop for celebrations, corporate events, conferences, and executive retreats for well-known Bay Area tech companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook, as well as luxury brands like Mercedes Benz, Lexus, and Hennessey.
Designed by architect Mike Burgess, you’ll enter the hilltop home’s level, front yard through custom metal gates, surrounded by lush, well-tended landscaping and decorative ornamental trees that provide year-round seasonal color.
A Hollywood Hills-inspired circular driveway leads you to the home’s commanding entryway; an extended portico with a sparkling water feature, adjacent to the home’s 3-car garage (overflow parking for your collection of exotic automobiles, or a couple of limos).
Step inside the home’s uber-modern glass portal and experience the full appreciation of its spectacular location and artful architecture. With vistas that seemingly never end, the views become art, framed in luxury window treatments. Meanwhile, the home maintains a beautiful dialogue with its outdoor living spaces from nearly every room in the house.
A dramatic, spiral staircase leads to upper (and lower) levels, with balconies extending over the enormous open floor plan offering different perspectives from every angle. With sightlines from the kitchen, dining and living rooms, the great room lives up to its name with ample space for entertaining gatherings large or small.
An impressive outdoor patio spans the home’s rear elevation, while upstairs bedrooms enjoy outdoor space from private lanais.
