When Lakers’ owner Jerry Buss passed away earlier this year at age 80, he was eulogized by colleagues as the brilliant entrepreneurial maverick that he was during his 30-plus years of NBA ownership.
A mogul with a reputation like Buss’ would never live in a McMansion in a soulless suburb somewhere in the Valley: Buss’ custom-built hilltop mansion in the Playa del Rey section of Los Angeles was recently listed for sale at $5.95 million.
Buss’ house itself is breathtaking, but the scenery off of its balconies is the real showstopper. The west-facing rooftop deck/spa and terrace provide panty-dropping views of the Pacific.
Highlights of Jerry Buss Playa del Rey Mansion:
• 7 bedrooms, 11 baths

• game room with wet bar
• 10,846-square-feet in .31 acres
