O.J. Mayo Buys $1.8 Million Milwaukee House
O.J. Mayo’s contract with the Milwaukee Bucks runs all of three seasons, but that didn’t stop the talented NBA guard from putting down roots in Wisconsin.
If nothing else, Mayo will be living comfortably during his stay in Brew City. The 26-year-old guard recently made a big-time purchase, picking up a five-acre property in the River Hills suburb of Milwaukee.
Built in 1995, the home is a modern take on the Prairie School style and incorporates classic Prairie attributes such as horizontal lines, inlaid windows and a prominently pitched roof. It has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two fireplaces and over 9,000 square feet of living space.
The first floor has a kitchen with a breakfast room that flows into an outdoor living room. Downstairs, a finished lower level has been converted into a recreational mecca of sorts and comes complete with a separate kitchen and bar, various game rooms, a movie theater and a sportsman’s room.
Records show that Mayo paid $1.8 million for the home in late September. The property, located just 10 minutes north of the Harris Bradley Center, originally came to market in early January with a price tag of roughly $2 million.
