Lakers’ Hachimura Lands Luxurious Encino Home for $7.25 Million

Los Angeles Lakers forward Rui Hachimura has made a significant real estate investment in Encino, CA.

The Japanese-born baller just spent $7,250,000 on a modern manse with six bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and more than 7,300 square feet.

Fortunately, Hachimura has money to spend after signing a three-year, $51 million contract with the Lakers last summer. Here are a couple of shots of his new digs, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles.

Built in 2023

This brand-new residence is billed as a modern farmhouse in the listing details; but from the few glimpses we’ve seen, it appears to lean more contemporary than rustic.

The design is clean, with a dark facade and abundant glass to help flood the space with that Southern California sunshine.

High-end materials were used throughout, including Douglas fir, white oak, natural stone, as well as metal and glass finishes. There’s a superluxe kitchen with two islands and a butler’s pantry, along with a home bar, an office, a personal gym, and screening room.

The master suite boasts elegant details, such as a large balcony, walk-in closets, a huge double shower, and soaking tub.

Naturally, there’s a pool in the private backyard, where olive trees and cypress dot the landscape.

The exterior also features a spa, cabana, an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, and space to lounge. And the home comes with an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) with its own living area and kitchenette.

Hachimura is the first Japanese national to ever to be drafted in the first round of the NBA draft, joining the Washington Wizards in 2019. In his rookie season, he won the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year award. After four seasons with the Wizards, Hachimura was dealt to the Lakers in January 2023.
