A Former NBA Player and an Interior Designer List Their Meticulously Renovated Encino Home

Former NBA player Kiki VanDeWeghe and interior designer/structural engineer Peggy VanDeWeghe are selling their circa-1972 midcentury modern ranch in Encino for $4,999,000.

Kiki VanDeWeghe played 13 seasons in the NBA during which he was a two-time NBA All-Star, and later served as a coach and general manager. Meanwhile, with Peggy VanDeWeghe’s design eye, this home is an MVP in its own right. Here are the basic stats: A circa-1972 five-bedroom and six-bath home across 5,773 square feet.

The splendid sight has been the couple’s primary home since 2010 and has undergone multiple renovations during their years here. For example, all bathrooms have been redone and, in 2020, they built a fully-finished studio/poolhouse that even boasts a rooftop deck perfect for enjoying golden hour. Even within the last year, the primary suite was “demolished” and given a complete overhaul to make it the spa-like sanctuary you see now.

With panoramic views and a focus on Feng Shui, the property makes for a quiet retreat, but it is also beautifully equipped for entertaining. As with most high-end Los Angeles residences, it is set up for easy indoor/outdoor living. A saltwater swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, and firepit are three easy points. But the putting green, vegetable garden, and concrete play court (of course) make this home a true winner. Inside, a 23-foot stone alcove wet bar with a hidden skylight, a chef’s kitchen, a wine bar, and fireplaces allow for more fun-filled entertaining moments.
