The estate which formerly belonged to Lee Philip Bell is located in the Beverly Hills Post Office area and overlooks the best parts of Beverly Hills.
Lebron James, who plays the Los Angeles, seems to have quite the architectural taste as this mansion sports various awe-inspiring details such as enthralling views of Beverly Hills, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, exposed wooden beam ceilings, a screening room, a pool, and a tennis court. Originally built in the 1930s, this home has been kept in excellent condition over the years by the Philip Bell estate. This lovely home would be the third owned by Mr. James who owns two(2) additional homes in Los Angeles.
The 2.5 acres estate is composed of a main house, two(2) guesthouses, a tennis court, a pool & pool house, and a Mediterranean-style motto court centered by a water fountain. The main house, the subject of our focus, spans an impressive of 9,100 square feet. We have compiled the 3 top features of the Mediterranean-style home that will certainly catch the attention of any decor-lover.
The Living Room:
One of the most captivating features in the main building of this Mediterranean-style is the exposed wooden beams in the living room ceiling finish. Mediterranean-inspired homes are often characterized by dome ceilings, white stucco walls, aquatic palettes, and calming natural tones that echo the design affinities of ancient Spanish and North African countries. This living room embodies this magnificence.
The fireplace catches the attention as one settles in this lovely living room, a few meters away from the patio. This lovely fireplace is 1 among the 6 other fireplaces situated in other spaces in this home. The sliding glass doors frame the amazing views across the patio that overlooks the rest of Beverly Hills. And finally, by introducing lush indoor palm against the white stucco walls, the warmth created by the natural wood ceiling and floor tones is further enhanced.
The Dining Area:

The cane antique dining chairs around blooming flowers in a basket planter further add visual excitement to the dining area. Other interesting details in the dining area include a plethora of green life that creates a lived-in feel, and this is reinforced across the other spaces within this home is exquisite.

The patio is a personal favorite. This lovely patio is dotted with tall palm trees, lush flower beds, and a water fountain bordered by outdoor planters. An evening walk around this outdoor area, culminating in a soaking of the evening sun on the patio furniture offers a calm family bonding time for the NBA superstar.
