Until now I had never heard of Wilt Chamberlain the NBA basketball player or this enormous house. After reading a few articles about the house, the most interesting thing aside from the architecture and interior was that it has a groovy feel to it.

“Built in 1971, the five-bedroom, 7,158-square-foot contemporary-style house at 15216 Antelo Place in Bel-Air was built by Chamberlain, who lived there until his death in 1999. TV writers George Meyer and Maria Semple purchased the house from Chamberlain’s estate in 2002 for nearly $3 million, and have owned it ever since. The house has attracted much attention over the years–both with this listing and in 2000-2002, when Chamberlain’s estate was trying to unload it, first for $7.45 million and later reducing its asking price to $4.38 million. The house’s unconventional features include a gold-lined hot tub, a retractable mirrored ceiling above the master bed, a swimming pool that flows into the living room, walls of glass, 40-foot ceilings, a wrap-around pool, and a balcony suspended over the living room. Other features include five and a half baths and teak finishes.

The house sits on a 2.58-acre parcel that has ocean and city views.”

    That guy is a total baller.

    you don’t know wilt?
    the 2 most important things about him are that he once scored 100 points in one NBA game
    and that he claims to have had sex with more than 20,000 women …
    might explain that room with the mirrors ;)

  4. Marshall says:

    He’s also dead… so little good the mirrors do him now o_O

  5. alphamale says:

    yeah, he sure took his talents to the south.

    how can Chamberlain be dead when his ghostly name is constantly resurrected on ESPN when comparing the greatest basketball legends in NBA history such as Jordan or modern players in Kobe and Lebron… the dude is a freak of nature player on the court, and off it… on his 8 ft. bed.

    epitome of the alpha male.

  6. [...] a bar capsule. Last but not least, the most important feature, a padded sun deck—a feature that Wilt Chamberlain would know all too well.More images after the jumpVia Color Cubic / Automotto Tweet thisShare on [...]

  7. I’m sure the new owners had the bedrooms and all flat surfaces thoroughly sanitized when they moved in…

    1. Don’t ever admit that you don’t know who Wilt Chamberlin is – it diminishes your manhood. lol
    2. This house is beautiful.
    3. $3Million is criminal. ugh, the housing market.

  9. DaveVSDave says:

    Wow. Absolutely incredible. Could you imagine being able to live like that? I’d settle for just a tour.

    A mate and I travelled to the USA from Australia and one of our goals was to find Wilt Chamberlain’s house. We drove around those streets, up and down hills for hours… unfortunately we had to concede defeat after a few hours and make our way up the coast to Santa Barbara. But just being in that space was amazing, I was in my mind picturing Wilt driving from his home down to the Great Western Forum through those winding streets, likely rolling in a convertible Corvette or something similar. This is such a unique house, shame we couldn’t find it… great post & great blog! Cheers!

    @Deano bummer you didn’t find it!

    I believe it’s a private compound up in Bel-Air!

    Now I can suck his huge black cock again.
