Ohio State basketball legend Michael Redd is selling his home for $5 million

Michael Redd, the former Ohio State and NBA star shooting guard and small forward, has listed his New Albany home for $5 million.

The home on Crescent Pond, located off Baughman Grant, was custom built for Redd 15 years ago and features a pool, 10,186 square feet of living space, a 75-yard golf hole, several outdoor living areas, and of course, a basketball court emblazoned with two big Rs on the floor. (The home comes with no guarantee the buyer will play like Redd.)

"The setting - the property sits on 4.4 acres - is incredibly unique, in the middle of New Albany Country Club," said Alan Hinson, who is listing the home for New Albany Realty.

"It has a real zen quality to it, just so peaceful. The light is just beautiful," he added.

Hinson noted that Redd, who grew up in the Columbus-area and remains very active in the region, has no plans to leave the area.

Redd and his family built the home in 2007, while Redd was playing for the NBA Milwaukee Bucks. Columbus architect George Acock designed the house in a Prairie style, full of floor-to-ceiling windows and multiple connections to the outdoors.

"There's outdoor living space not just off the family room, but off the lower-level game area, and the owners' suite terrace overlooks the pond and grounds," Hinson said.

The grounds also feature a pond, in-ground trampoline and a 75-yard, one-hole golf course, illuminated to allow night play.

The home includes five bedrooms, six-and-a-half baths, and five garages. First listed on Sept. 17 for $6 million, the price was reduced this week.

Redd played at Ohio State University from 1997 to 2000, helping take the team to the Final Four in 1999. Redd played 13 years in the NBA, most of that time with the Milwaukee Bucks, and was a member of the U.S. gold medal-winning Olympic men's basketball team in 2008.

Since retiring from the NBA, Redd has been an active investor and philanthropist in the Columbus area.
