In En­cino, a fresh start

Los Angeles Times - - HOT PROPERTY -

Ear­lier this year, the Charg­ers fran­chise found a new home in L.A., and now its longest-tenured star has done the same. Dec­o­rated tight end An­to­nio

Gates and his wife, “WAGs” per­son­al­ity Sasha Gates, have pur­chased a newly built home in En­cino for the ask­ing price of $6.995 mil­lion.

Reached by a wind­ing and gated drive­way, the con­tem­po­rary-style home em­pha­sizes clean lines, re­tractable walls of glass and open spa­ces in its 8,500 square feet of liv­ing space.

Eye-catch­ing de­tails in­clude a float­ing stair­case, a screen­ing room and a glass-en­closed wine cel­lar/tast­ing room. A floor-to­ceil­ing wall fire­place di­vides the fam­ily room and cen­ter-is­land kitchen. The mas­ter suite, which fea­tures two walk-in clos­ets and a spa-like bath, opens to a pri­vate ter­race. There are six bed­rooms and eight bath­rooms in all.

A cov­ered pa­tio space with an out­door kitchen and fire­place fea­ture cre­ates ad­di­tional liv­ing space out­doors. An in­fin­ity-edge swim­ming pool, a basketball half­court and a four-car garage make up the grounds.

Pa­tri­cia Phillips of Rodeo Re­alty was the list­ing agent. Brit­tney Hinds of eXp Re­alty of Cal­i­for­nia rep­re­sented the buy­ers.

An­to­nio Gates, 37, has been in sell mode of late, di­vest­ing him­self of his Poway home in May and selling an­other home in Hol­ly­wood Hills West.

The eight-time Pro Bowler is the Charg­ers’ all-time record holder for re­ceiv­ing yards (11,192) and touch­down catches (111) and is tied with Tony Gon­za­lez for the most scores by a tight end in NFL his­tory.
