The home that former NBA All-Star Gilbert Arenas once shared with his former fiancée Laura Goven and their four children has sold for $3.35 million. 
The former point guard for the Orlando Magic and Memphis Grizzlies bought the seven-bedroom, 9,600-square-foot house in a gated community in Calabasas two years ago for $2.75 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The seven-acre hilltop property has views of the canyon and nearby mountains. The  stone estate has a secret 1,500-bottle wine room, a movie theater with tiered seating and a saltwater swimming pool. The master suite has a dry sauna, soaking tub, and fireplace.

Daniel DeBruno and Geoff Gil of Dwell California Real Estate were the listing agents, according to the Multiple Listing Service. David Smith of Keller Williams Realty repped the unnamed buyer.

Arenas, 34 — a three-time All-Star with the Washington Wizards — signed an $111 million, six-year contract in 2008, making him one of the league’s highest-paid players. That contract finished paying out in October. More recently he has played for the Shanghai Sharks in the Chinese Basketball Association. Arenas has also made headlines with his public battle with Goven, and for an incident where he and a teammate brought guns into the Wizards’ locker room. [LAT] — Gabrielle Paluch
