NBA Star Wilt Chamberlain’s Former Residence 15216 Antelo Place

A geometric masterpiece, 15216 Antelo Place, the most exceptional & unique custom-built estate, mastered by renowned architect David Tenneson Rich in the 1970s for basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain.

Located at 15216 Antelo Place in Los Angeles, this nearly 9,395-square-foot, five-bedroom, eight-full-bath house—with a three-car garage—is a gem for many aspects. 

“Mastered by renowned architect David Tenneson Rich, the rich character and history of this residence remain unrivaled since it was built in the 1970s for basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain,” says agent Bobby Syed of Coldwell Banker Realty, who sold the house 14 years ago.

The current owners led extensive renovations (from 2008 to 2013) to make it contemporary thanks to the media room, billiard room, gym, redwood sauna, outdoor kitchen and a large swimming pool.

“This property is perfect for a discerning buyer who values privacy and will cherish its striking architecture and historical significance.”

Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright‘s organic style and the natural beauty of California, the design of the house was decided after Wilt Chamberlain saw the 2.5-acre land from the air (by helicopter) with his realtor at the time.

“Rich asked if Wilt preferred a circle, square or triangle,” says Bobby Syed. “Wilt’s reply was triangle, which informed the structural design.”

Providing sweeping views of the ocean, the city and the valley, the five-story living room features a cathedral ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows and tree-like columns, among other striking elements.

Steel, stone and glass characterize this geometric architectural gem hidden behind two massive gates and situated on a cul-de-sac hilltop, with no neighbors that have views into the property. One of its kind, this legendary property is ready for a new chapter. 

The brutalist design is offset by ample glazing that brightens and softens the interior. The rich character and history of this residence remains unrivaled. Perfect for a discerning buyer who values privacy and will cherish this prized property’s striking architecture and historical significance.
