Orlando Magic Center Channing Frye Reduces Home Price
The NBA’s Channing Frye could use a real estate slam dunk right now: The Orlando Magic center listed his Wilsonville, OR, home for sale back in June, but after three price reductions—the most recent of which came just a few days ago—it’s still on the market.
What’s inside? For starters, you’ll get a location on a peaceful cul-de-sac and a home that overlooks the Willamette River. You’ll also find lovely views from just about every room.
Plus, there are soaring ceilings with crown moldings, beautiful architectural details and gleaming hardwood floors throughout. The sun-drenched gourmet kitchen features granite-topped counters, mosaic tile backsplash and the full gamut of stainless steel appliances.
The master bedroom, lush and lavish with tray ceilings and a private balcony that overlooks the verdant backyard, has an en suite bath—perfect for finding solitude at the end of the day —and a massive walk-in closet.
If you’re ready to make an offer, call agent Karen Durrett.
Why’s Frye selling? Well, one of the reasons may be the even nicer pad he bought a few months ago: It’s a sumptuous Dunthorpe estate in Portland—built in 1943 and rebuilt in 2001—that’s bursting at the seams with magnificence.
At just a hair under 10,000 square feet, the home has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms and an acre of verdant Pacific Northwest goodness.
Each of the bedrooms has its own en suite bath, including the cavernous master bedroom which is outfitted with a fabulous spa bath that rivals any we’ve seen. The kitchen is a triumph, with expansive granite-topped counters, custom designed with painted cabinetry and a host of chef-grade appliances.
Teri Nelson, who was the listing agent in the transaction, did a bang-up job with the home’s presentation; the sale closed on July 10, 2014, for $2.35 million.
Channing Frye was the eighth overall pick in the 2005 draft, and he was a member of the All-Rookie First team in 2006. Frye has played for four NBA teams over the course of his ten-year career—including the Portland Trail Blazers from 2007-09. He inked a four-year, $32 million deal with the Orlando Magic last July.
Along with his wife Lauren, Frye established the Frye Family Foundation in 2010 to give back to the communities that mean the most to their family. He played college ball at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
