Photos: Golden State Warriors Owner Joe Lacob Buys $29 Million Malibu Mansion
September 7, 2019
Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob and his wife Nicole Curran moved from Silicon Valley, Calif. to the seaside city of Malibu. The couple bought a $29 million oceanfront mansion on Carbon Beach.
Before becoming Warriors majority owner in 2010, Lacob was a brilliant Silicon Valley venture capitalist. He still is. Lacob has been a partner at Kleiner Perkins, and his investments are used in firms related to medical tech, life sciences and energy.
Spending their free time listening to the Pacific Ocean’s hypnotic waves is like a dream come true, and Lacob and his wife are living their best dream.
According to Venture, “Originally built in 1970, the charcoal-colored house was completely remodeled and expanded by the seller, emergency doctor-turned-part-time real estate developer Joseph Englanoff. Now feauturing three levels and over 5,500 square feet of contemporary living space, the oceanfront mini-mansion is essentially all-new and sizzles with a host of trendy luxury amenities. Originally listed this April with a $34.5 million ask, Lacob appears to have successfully negotiated a hefty discount on the premises.
“The main level sports a giant combination formal living/dining area with fireplace, plus a temperature-controlled glass wine closet sure to make the Curran-Lacob family’s boozehound guests swoon with envy. Automatic Fleetwood sliding doors noiselessly allow access to a wooden deck with direct beach access, and somewhere there’s a soundproof movie theater with cozy couch seating. Also on the main level is an eat-in kitchen with high-tech everything, a bedroom suite for a live-in maid or overnight guest, and a two-car garage.
“To access the home’s upper floors, Curran and Lacob can opt to take either the home’s pneumatic elevator or the slightly more traditional wood-and-glass staircase. The master suite takes up much of this level and includes a bedroom with head-on ocean views, a fireplace and a flatscreen TV that folds down from the ceiling. The master bath is slathered in a grey, exotic-looking variety of stone and sports a steam shower and soaking tub, while there’s also a boutique-style closet, a glass-walled gym, private sitting room and two additional bedroom suites on this floor.”
