Listed just last week for just under $1.8 million: the maxxed-out home in Southampton that NBA star Shane Battier and his wife, Heidi Ufer, bought just a couple of months after he joined the Houston Rockets in 2006. Battier was traded back to the Memphis Grizzlies this past February. A few pro basketball players who’ve spent time in Houston have held onto their homes here, but Battier is putting this one up: a quaint little 1905 farmhouse-looking thing expanded and tricked out by previous owners to just under 6,000 sq. ft. Sure, there’s the media room, the game room, the commercial-grade appliances, the big barrel-armed furniture, and the earthy tones straight out of NBA interior design school you’d expect to find here, but there are a few surprises too:
Like this cozy 2-room wine cellar, decorated with these unusable French Oak barrels. And yes, it’s in an actual Houston basement:
A place to hang your jerseys:
Upstairs, there are 5 or 6 bedrooms, depending on who’s keeping score. The home has 4 full and 2 half baths.
It all fits on a 7,440 sq. ft. corner lot, leaving a fenced side yard along Wilton.
