The lower level of Rajon Rondo’s home would be enough to pique the interest of any home buyer. No wonder the property stole the attention of the former Celtics star.
Home theater? Check. Lounge with galley kitchen and fireplace? Game room? Bedroom with full bath? Check. Check. Check.
How about a grooming space complete with barber’s chair and mirror? Yup.
And that’s just in the walkout basement of Rondo’s Lincoln home, which quietly went on the market in May for $2.45 million. Now that the family has moved out of 9 Fridolin Hill , the news has gone public, and the asking price has been reduced to $1.99 million.
The 6,513-square-foot shingle-and-stone property has five bedrooms, five full baths, and two half baths, and it sits behind gates on 1.5 acres on a dead-end street overlooking a reservoir.
“When I first toured this home seven years ago, I immediately knew this property had to be mine. It is an extraordinary property, and my family and I absolutely loved living there,” Rondo said. “We especially appreciated being part of the Lincoln community, which was always welcoming and warm to us. This was a very lucky house for me, and I have nothing but fond memories of my time here.”
Rondo, a four-time all-star, purchased the gated property in 2008 when he was 22 years old. He had just finished the season as point guard for the Celtics, playing on the team that brought the franchise’s 17th championship title to Boston. The Celtics traded Rondo late last year. He now plays for the Sacramento Kings.
The home, built in 2003, features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and limestone flooring; a master bedroom with a fireplace, balcony, and two dressing rooms; and a dining room with a coffered ceiling.
