Although he started his career with the Toronto Raptors and currently plays power forward for the Miami Heat, one of Chris Bosh’s homes is located in Pacific Palisades.

Bosh and his wife purchased the sprawling 10,755-square-foot home in December 2012 for $9.4 million. Despite the recent sale, Bosh has put the home on the Pacific Palisades rental market for $45,000 a month, according to the Real Estalker. It’s not likely Bosh is renting out the place to make a little extra money: He made more than $16 million last season. Perhaps he and his wife have another reason for playing landlord.

The Mediterranean-style villa has 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms on a 1.5-acre lot with ocean views. Situated on a knoll, the home has plenty of outdoor living amenities, including an infinity pool with swim-up bar and lounge areas, a huge outdoor eating area with full kitchen (including a pizza oven), as well as grass expanses and landscaping.

Inside the home has a host of features typical to a celebrity home: movie theater, bar area with billiards table, luxurious home office, huge master suite with dual master baths and closets, not to mention a gourmet kitchen and staff quarters.

By renting out his California manse, Bosh is by no means looking for another property to call home. The NBA star also owns a mansion in Miami that he picked up for $12.3 million in 2010.
