Kevin Garnett Lists His Boston-Area Contemporary Home

Kevin Garnett is throwing it down in a new town, so the former Boston Celtics forward has decided to sell his sprawling, glamorous Concord, MA home.

Garnett’s majestic contemporary estate at 75 Buttricks Hill Dr, Concord, MA 01742 sits on a secluded 12-acre parcel overlooking a pond, but it’s the sleek elegance of the 11,000-square-foot house that will catch the eye of anyone capable of shelling out $4.85 million, which is what the 37-year-old Garnett is asking.

Garnett and his wife, Brandi, said they’ll treasure the memories they have of the home, but it’s time to let it go.

Garnett made headlines in 1997 when he signed a $126 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves and continues to rack up $28 million in annual salary and endorsements. But maybe he needs to free up some cash to afford a new spread in his very pricey new town: New York.

Designed by award-winning architects Machado and Silvetti Associates, creators of the Getty Villa in Malibu, Garnett’s Boston-area home is a showstopper. With 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, the place is a contemporary masterpiece, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, a wine cellar, gym and media room.

Not that anyone should expect anything less than stellar from Garnett.

Before there was a high school basketball superstar named LeBron James, there was Garnett. In 1995, the South Carolina native was picked in the first round of the NBA draft by the Timberwolves to become the first high school player in two decades to go straight from the high school gym to the show.

Over his 18-year career, the man known as K.G. has been a spectacular and very marketable pro, winning NBA MVP awards, NBA championships and Olympic gold medals and selling everything from sports drinks to sneakers. In June, the Brooklyn Nets made the trade with the Boston Celtics for the 6-11 forward, who is already a leader of New York’s newest NBA franchise.

Garnett apparently has an affinity for homes with waterfront views. Even after his departure from the T-Wolves, Garnett still owns a sprawling estate in Long Lake, MN that he bought in 2007 for $6.45 million.

Assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage, a monthly payment on Garnett’s Concord real estate market spread would be $18,890, according to Zillow’s mortgage calculator.
