There are not enough adjectives in the English language to describe the humble abode of Houston Rockets Superstar, Tracy McGrady.
He and wife, CleRenda, were nice enough to open the doors to our crew. I’m posting some extra photos here and more on my blog.
Two of the photos are of the grass in the front yard. TMac had popped in quickly and needed to take another car out of the garage. Unfortunately, our hunks of junk were blocking the way. No worries, TMac took the Range Rover over the grass in the yard. SORRY!! I felt really bad!
Photojournalist extraordinaire Gregg Ramirez makes an appearance because I was taking pictures. He hates that… it just makes me do it more!
Above the basketball rim, behind the glass is the workout room. Yes, everything is personalized with TMac everywhere. We spotted some framed jerseys with autographs. The photos of the indoor, full sized basketball court with parquet floor really don’t do it justice. Half of the court was covered with an astroturf material because a party was held there. But in the middle is an amazing painting of TMac.
The small room is a spa just built by CleRenda for Valentine’s day. Beautifully designed, its so TMac has a place to get his hair cut and his pedicures. That room is right off of the basketball court. And the basketball court is right off of the kitchen.
CleRenda did a fantastic job decorating the 20,000 sq. foot home. It truly feels cozy even with 8 bedrooms, 9 or 10 bathrooms, guest house and 6 car garage. We didn’t even get to the majority of the rooms, that could have taken all day!
BTW, this was the home originally designed by then Astros player, Shane Reynolds.
When Gregg got home, he called me to tell me… this isn’t my house, my house isn’t this small. Better than me, I was cleaning my house to try to make it look bigger. Didn’t work.
Big thanks to the McGradys for allowing us to visit the lap of luxury, if only for a little while. It didn’t last long enough.
