WAXHAW, N.C. - NBA star Stephen Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, is selling his sprawling Waxhaw mansion where he lived when his incredible career was starting to take off.
The basketball superstar married Ayesha, the daughter of local realtor John Alexander.
He is now selling the couple's first home because the Golden State Warriors in the San Francisco area aren't letting Curry go anytime soon.
"From the moment Steph and Aishya walked into this home, they fell in love with it," Alexander said.
During a walk-through on Wednesday morning, Alexander showed Channel 9 the special features that the couple loved.
One of them was the kitchen where Ayesha started her food career.
Another interesting feature was an outdoor staircase that Curry asked the builders to raise so his tall friends wouldn't have to duck their heads.
The sprawling 6,750 square-foot mansion where the couple welcomed their first child has four stunning bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Rich, dark wood paneling and hardwood floors run throughout the mansion. Security features can be accessed from iPads dotted throughout main rooms.
It isn't all for looks; the master bathroom was engineered for cold days.
"The floors are heated as well, which make it very nice during the winter," Alexander said.
Between practices and games, Steph kept up with his hometown teams in an impressive movie theatre.
"He has said he would like to be a part of the Panthers' ownership group. Do you think he has an opportunity here to buy in?" reporter Mark Barber asked.
"I'm not sure; that would not be a question for me but I know he is an avid, avid fan of the Panthers,” Alexander replied.
Steph's man cave is in the lower level of the house. One of the centerpieces is a pool table that he and his wife designed.
"It's a decision that breaks their heart, but they are selling the home. There was a lot of love in this house,” Alexander said.
Now, it can be yours. All you need is a little more than $1.5 million.
Steph is currently playing under a record $200 million contract. As you may remember, he played basketball at Charlotte Christian and Davidson College, in Lake Norman.
