Former Rockets star Steve Francis buys a house and lists another

-

Former Rockets point guard Steve "The Franchise" Francis seems to be shrinking in Houston. The three-time All-Star recently bought a 5,300-square-foot pad in the suburb of Sugar Land and also listed its palatial property a little closer to the city for $ 4,995 million.

The details of his new place are limited, but the old one offers a lot to see. Through 10,000 square feet, the mansion full of amenities has a wine cellar, game room, two-story library and movie theater, as well as a pool and an outdoor basketball court.

A trio of front balconies hang from the outside, which opens to a bulky hall full of wrought iron accents. Tiled floors, rich moldings and crisp white walls mark the living spaces.

The living room is lined with columns and French doors, and beyond there is a spacious kitchen and a formal dining room with stone fireplace. The main level master suite, one with five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, is completed with three custom closets.

Outside, a cabin covers an outdoor kitchen. The lands add up to almost an acre. That's about three times the size of your new property, but that's a little more recent; records show that it was built three years ago, while the market was built in 2002.

Francis, 42, spent a decade in the NBA, playing for the Rockets, Orlando Magic and New York Knicks before finishing his career with the Beijing Ducks in China. In addition to being named rookie of the year in the NBA in 2000, the striking shipowner played in three consecutive Star games from 2002 to 2004.

Marilyn Martinez of Beth Wolff Realtors has the list.
