Kobe and Vanessa Bryant List Newport Coast Estate; 10 Looks at What $8.6 Million Gets You

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant have listed one of their Newport Coast estates for $8.6 million. Don't know if that means they'll be leaving Orange County as they've been reported in recent years to have built/purchased other pads up there.

But if you'd like to gander at the 20,000-square-foot house that includes a gym, shark tank, and outdoor entertaining area with a pool and a hot tub, 10 views follow ...

Listed by Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olson & Associates, the two-story, four-bedroom, seven-bathroom, Mediterranean-style home was built on a half-acre at the end of a cul de sac in 1997, when it sold for $1.7 million. Why yes, it is set behind gates.

A custom home remodeled ...

Boring neo-classical decor and architecture. This just screams new money. No personality. It looks like a house a person with no interests lives in. C'mon Kobe, you can do better.

The Zillow estimate is $5.7M.  Just as he does his own value on the court, Kobe overestimates the desirability of his tackily designed home.

Not what I would spend 8.6 million on but it is nice. I would have decorated it differently but hey to each his own, his money not mine.

House's outside is actually pretty modest looking until you find out it is over 20,000 sq ft. Whoa.

It's kind of a boring house.  Ok, don't get me wrong, it's way nicer than my place but you'd think for all the money they have it would have a little more character.

Shouldn't there be a hoop over one of those garages?

Un-fucking-believable!! So, a house that was $1.7 million is now $8.6 just because Kobe lived in it?!! What a crock of fucking shit!! And who gives a fuck if it has a shark tank!!

If I could just collect on my royalties from China for the film I produced and directed I could buy something like that.

Typical "Look at our money" place. No taste, pretty dull and lifeless. But, then again, that describes most of Newport.

The decor needs a little color, it's a little drab. Okay it's a lot drab!

@Michael Mastagni  You must be looking at the lot size, my friend. The house is 8500 sq feet.
