Kevin Garnett puts his Concord crib on the market
If we owned Kevin Garnett’s house in Concord we’d never leave the Celtics. But the former C’s forward was shipped to the Brooklyn Nets, so he and wife Brandi have put the place on the market. And it’s no ordinary McMansion like you might see on MTV’s “Cribs.” Garnett’s house overlooking Howes Pond was designed by the celebrated architectural firm Machado and Silvetti Associates, and it features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a large kitchen, wine cellar, media room, gym, and a four-car garage. (KG had a Bentley among several other sweet rides.) How much? It can be all yours for $4.85 million. (The tax bill is $56,071, FYI.) “Kevin and Brandi absolutely loved the house. Their time in Boston was a very happy chapter in their lives,” said the listing agent Rosemary McCready, of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. (Garnett’s time in Boston was a happy chapter in our life as well.) The 11,000-square-foot house, which sits on 13 acres, was a refuge for Garnett, who bought the house in 2007 for $4.62 million. A legendary private person, the 6-foot-11 NBA star rarely went out during his time in Boston, preferring instead to hang out at the house. “We had many happy gatherings with family and friends, and we dedicated a lot of time and effort to incorporate our own personal touches to this home,” the Garnetts said in a statement. One such touch is a subterranean man cave with five TV screens and a “massive, glamorous dressing room the likes of which I’ve never seen,” said McCready. The house, which has been featured in various architectural publications, including Metropolitan Home and Architectural Record, was custom built in the ’90s for Warren Feldberg, the former president of Target.
