Celebrity homes always have the latest and greatest features that most of us dream of in our homes. Full sized tennis courts, movie theaters, helicopter landing pads, and Olympic sized pools.
The newest celebrity must have is full-sized basketball courts!
We’re not talking about the hoop above the garage—we’re talking about a full court with court markings and everything – Even a bench for players that are waiting their turn on the court.
It’s not just Hollywood’s basketball pros that are having courts installed, it’s you’re A-listers too. Celebrities like Will Smith, Selena Gomez, Jamie Foxx, and Leonardo DiCaprio enjoy a full-sized court in the comfort of their own homes.
In 2012 alone a shocking 21 homes sold with full sized basketball courts in Southern California. So far this year there are 13 homes with courts that have sold. And as more celebs install courts we will see this trend continue to rise.
The full sized courts are not welcomed with open arms by all of these celebs neighbors. There have been complaints of noise and concerns that the large courts are an eyesore that will decrease residential value. Nonetheless celebrities are trend setters. While we may not all have the room or finances to install full-sized courts, you will see non-celebs begin to up the ante on their home courts.
