Steph Curry just bought a new place that’s more than 2,800 miles from where the Golden State Warriors make their home in the Bay Area.

The Warriors guard and his wife, Ayesha, just purchased a $2.1 million home in Winter Park, Florida, close to where the Orlando Magic play. The spacious home is tucked in a residential neighborhood and filled with amenities, though it’s not clear what attracted to couple to move across the country, The Charlotte Observer reported in a July 16 story.

Curry’s Spacious New Place

The Currys’ new home has 4,242 square feet and plenty of amenities for their family of five. The pair already own a much larger mansion near the Bay Area, a $31 million mansion in San Mateo County, but the new home in Florida is still pretty spacious, the Charlotte Observer noted.

“The home on Edwin Boulevard includes four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a kitchen with a six-burner gas range, two ovens and a built-in espresso machine, according to Zillow. The two-story, single-family home also has crown molding, solid wood cabinets, two wet bars, stone counters, tray ceilings, vinyl fencing, a gas fireplace and a walk-in closets, Zillow said,” according to the Observer.

Some saw the purchase as curious because the Currys do not have any known ties to the area. The Orlando Business Journal noted that the region has become a popular spot for athletes and that housing prices have more than doubled since 2015, the last time Curry’s home was purchased. Curry paid close to double the $1.06 million paid in 2015. The report noted that the price Curry paid was still below what may have been expected given the real estate growth in the region.

Curry Still Tied to the Bay Area

It’s not clear what prompted Curry to buy a place in central Florida, but his ties to the Bay Area don’t appear to be fraying, SFGate.com’s Zach Zafran wrote in a July 27 story. He signed a contract extension last summer that keeps him with the Warriors through 2026, and Curry has made it clear he wants to end his career in Golden State and would see it as a career accomplishment to play his entire career with the same team.

“That’s a huge goal for sure,” Curry said in 2020, during contract talks. “It’s an elite club of guys that you look at that have played with the same organization and been successful and achieved greatness in that respect. So that would be an awesome accomplishment. Something that I’ve obviously spoken publicly about and am very committed to. But that also goes with there’s a lot more to be accomplished on the court, and again I can’t fast forward to what the end is going to be and not enjoy the moment, enjoy the challenges we have in front of us and what I have left to accomplish as a player. So we’ll see what happens.”

Steph and Ayesha Curry have other strong ties to the Bay Area, including their Eat. Learn. Play. foundation, which works with underprivileged families in the area. The couple celebrated the third anniversary of the foundation’s close to 1,000 children to watch an Oakland Athletics game.
