The Surprisingly Modest Starter Home of Russell Westbrook

Share News:

Just a scant couple of weeks after showcasing the expansive Park City, Utah, home of NBA legend Michael Jordan, we find ourselves in Edmond, Oklahoma, gazing a the surprisingly – and substantially – more modest home of former Oklahoma City Thunder point guard (now with the Houston Rockets) Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook, according to sports news site Busted Coverage, purchased the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond in 2008, as a 20-year-old rookie.

“The house has all the updates your wife will be looking for including quartz countertops, an open floor plan and a backyard that’s ready for modest pool parties, not some scene out of Los Angeles. This is Oklahoma. Modesty,” writes the site.

Over on Reddit, initial reaction was surprise at how, well, normal the home seemed.

“Genuinely surprised at how modest it is. Looks like a house a moderately upper class family would have, not a legendary athlete with millions as I like to shop houses I could never afford. I’m sure it’s a secondary house or something, but imo still little odd he wouldn’t have a more high-life house.. not that there’s anything wrong with that,” wrote one Redditor.

There’s also a bit of back and forth about whether the home is actually his, but lo, came in four days later to confirm with their own story.

Nevertheless, for the reasonable price of $429,500, you can own this 3,011 square foot Traditional that is pretty much move-in ready, with a remodeled kitchen that boasts quartz counters and plenty of room for Thanksgiving dinner prep, a living room with large windows, and a family room that opens to the backyard, which includes a grill, fire pit, and pool.
