Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom has listed his Manhattan Beach home for $2,399,000.
Custom-built in 2002, the Mediterranean has an open floor plan, formal living and dining rooms, a family room with a hand-carved wet bar, three stone fireplaces, an office and a three-car garage. A round window brings light into the top of the two-story foyer. The house has five bedrooms -- some of which Odom used as closet space -- and five bathrooms in 4,181 square feet.
In the resort-like backyard, a stepped terrace off the back of the house leads to a built-in barbecue area, a gas fire pit and a swimming pool and spa. There are views of downtown L.A., the Hollywood sign and the mountains.
Odom, who turned 30 on Friday, bought the house in 2006 as a place to entertain his teammates, according to reports at the time. The location is convenient to the Lakers' practice center and the airport.
He recently married actress Khloé Kardashian, 25. Her "Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami" series, which started in August, is a spinoff of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" (2007-present), on which she costars.
Odom, who started his NBA career with the Clippers in 1999, came to the Lakers in 2004 after a year with the Miami Heat. In July, he signed a four-year deal with the Lakers worth up to $33 million. Soon he can add reality-show star to his résumé. "Keeping Up With Karashians: The Wedding" will air Sunday on E!

Crawford classic back on market
Talk-show host Leeza Gibbons has put her longtime Hollywood Hills compound on the market at $6.85 million.
The 11,137-square-foot Mediterranean is set behind gates on more than an acre of landscaped grounds. It was built in 1926 and was owned in the '40s by actress Joan Crawford. The main house has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms in three stories.
Gibbons, 52, remodeled and renovated the home, which has carved moldings, intricate wood-panel ceilings and extensive terraces. A detached guesthouse was added in 2000.
She hosts the nationally syndicated radio show "Hollywood Confidential" and had her own the daytime talk show "Leeza" from 1994 to 2000.
The property, which Gibbons has owned since the early '90s, had been on and off the market since 2005. She is selling because she would like to relocate to Beverly Hills, according to her listing agents.
Drew Mandile and Brooke Knapp of Sotheby's International Realty, Beverly Hills, have the listing.
Silent star first owned this estate
A 1929 Spanish-style estate in Bel-Air that traces its Hollywood history back to silent film star Colleen Moore is for sale at $15.95 million or for lease at $39,000 a month.
The gated compound sits on less than three-quarters of an acre. Three structures contain seven bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, two guest apartments, a projection room, an art studio and a gym in about 13,000 square feet. A two-story entry leads to public rooms, including a formal dining room, den and media room.
Moore, whose bobbed hairstyle would become a fad, frequently played comic roles on the silver screen. She starred as Annie in "Little Orphant Annie" (1918) while in her teens and gained fame as a young adult for her role as a flapper in "Flaming Youth" (1923).
As sound films caught on, Moore took a break from acting and frequently entertained at her Bel-Air home. A garden tea for educators was among the events held on the grounds in 1930, according to Los Angeles Times archives. Another reminder of her time in residence is a 1931 lost-and-found ad giving the home's address and stating: "Dog lost, Great Dane, male, light brown, small scar on forehead."
Moore made the move to talkies and starred opposite Spencer Tracy in "The Power and the Glory" (1933). Her final film was "The Scarlet Letter" (1934). She died in 1988 at age 87.

Designer remakes Spanish Colonial
Designer Stephan Basil Yacobian has listed his hip Spanish Colonial in the Hancock Park area at $1,595,000.
The walled compound has a courtyard with an Andalusian fountain, tile steps leading to a heavy wooden entry door, a terra-cotta fireplace with accent tiles in the living room and a Spanish-tile fire pit with barbecue in the patio area. Interior finishes reflect the 1920s origins of the three-bedroom, 3 1/2 -bathroom, 2,506-square-foot home.
Yacobian's focus on color, flow and function is evident in the remodel.
The designer bought the home a year ago as his personal residence. He has worked on spec projects for more than eight years in Los Angeles, New York and abroad, and he has a celebrity client list that includes actors, singers and songwriters.
Diana Knox of Coldwell Banker's Hancock Park North office is the listing agent.
DJ AM's house in the hills is for sale
The Beverly Hills home of the late Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein has come on the market at $3,795,000.
The gated midcentury one-story has four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in 3,375 square feet.
There are mahogany floors, a built-in theater, a two-sided fireplace and a backyard with a swimming pool and spa.
Built in 1961, the house sits on more than three-quarters of an acre on a cul-de-sac with views encompassing canyon, city and ocean.
Goldstein, who worked as a turntablist on albums for stars including Madonna and Will Smith and often collaborated with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, was known for his electrifying performances. He appeared on TV in "The Simple Life" (2005) and "Entourage" (2006).
He currently can be seen in MTV's "Gone Too Far," a seven-part documentary series he created and hosted in hopes of helping families and friends of drug addicts stage interventions.
