Kobe Bryant‘s childhood home in Pennsylvania — where the late basketball legend spent countless hours working on his skills — has just sold for $810k, TMZ Sports has learned.
The Black Mamba lived in the 5-bed, 3 1/2-bath, Philadelphia-area home during his teenage years … when he quickly became one of the best hoopers in the country, leading his Lower Merion HS team to a state title in 1996.
The Bryant family parted ways with the home in 2008 … and it hit the market again this past September for $899k.
According to records, the home closed on Nov. 6 … and sold for $810k. David Wyher and TJ Sokso of Compass represented the listing.
Of course, $810k is a pretty symbolic number — Kobe’s forever tied to #81 after his iconic 81-point performance against the Toronto Raptors on Jan 22, 2006.
The home is beautiful, but the most sentimental part has to be the hoop … which is the same one Bryant used before becoming one of the best players to ever pick up a ball.
Unclear on what the buyer plans to do with the hoop … but it’s gotta be worth a fortune — Kobe memorabilia like his Lakers championship rings to game-worn shoes and autographed hardwood from his last NBA game have sold for huge numbers at auctions since his death.
Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, were among 9 killed in a helicopter crash in Jan. 2020.
No word on who bought the iconic home … but one thing’s for sure — they *had* to know the significance of the place.
