Just two years after purchasing an acre and a half of land to build a sprawling 9,500-square-foot home, former Boston Celtics point guard Kemba Walker sold his Massachusetts estate in an off-market deal.

The move comes after Walker, who grew up in the Bronx, joined the New York Knicks in August. But his recent benches in the team, and the Knicks’ withdrawal from rotation in favor of Alec Burks, called into question his future with the NBA.

Located in the upscale Brookline neighborhood, Walker, 31, bought the home for $ 11.25 million in 2019.

Although the current price is not disclosed, it is been reported which Walker received more than he paid at the time, when he signed a contract with the Celtics worth $ 141 million over four years.

Comprised of six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the home features a limestone exterior with a 22 foot custom iron driveway.

The residence also includes a double bridal iron staircase, two kitchens, an au pair suite, a wood-paneled library, “palace” primary quarters and four en-suite bedrooms with 14-foot plateaus ceilings, according to the previous list.

The property has also been touted for its ‘secluded life’ with ‘potential for estate expansion’.

Walker’s career with the Celtics took a turn when he was forced to sit down last December with nagging left knee pain that stem cell injection therapy couldn’t to fix.

Speaking for the first time from his recent bench with the Knicks, Walker revealed his mixed emotions on the decision of coach Tom Thibodeau.

“It was difficult, obviously, because as a competitor I love to play basketball,” Walker said Monday after practice. “I like being in the field. This is the first time this has happened to me in my career, pretty much at any level. But at the end of the day, I have respect for Coach Thibs and the decision he made. It might not have been easy, but it was a choice he made. I have no choice but to live with it.

Brookline also housed Tom Brady while playing for the Patriots. Following his trade with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, quarterback and wife Gisele B√ľndchen recently sold their 12,112 square foot mansion worth $ 34 million – also in an off-market sale.
