CHARLOTTE, NC (Mark Price/The Charlotte Observer) - NBA All Star Stephen Curry and his celebrity chef wife Ayesha Curry have put their home outside Charlotte up for sale, despite Curry's talk of wanting to be among the new owners of the Carolina Panthers.
The asking price is $1.55 million.
Variety magazine is referring to it as the former Charlottean's "starter mansion." The home is 7,650 square feet, located in an upscale guard-gated development in the Waxhaw area of Union County. It has four bedrooms, four full and three half bathrooms, a movie theater, wine cellar, man cave, exercise room and four-car garage.
Jacar Reality is listing the home at 307 Skyecroft Way, and describes it as "chance to own the first home of NBA All Star Stephen Curry."
Curry has settled for the foreseeable future in California's Bay Area, where he has a record setting $201 million, five-year contract with the Golden State Warriors.
He is among several of the high profile figures who have talked of wanting to be part of the Carolina Panthers ownership team. The Panthers went on the market at the end of the season, after Jerry Richardson revealed he was putting his majority share of the team up for sale. Charlotteans have argued that they want to keep the ownership locally based, so the team will be less likely to move to another community.
Curry grew up in Charlotte, where his father, Dell Curry, was an original member of the Hornets, and is still that franchise's career scoring leader.
Ayesha Alexander and Stephen Curry met in youth group at the Central Church of God in Charlotte, which both their families attended. The couple and their two children now live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
