Here's what $18.8 million gets you: Jason Kidd's former Paradise Valley home

A 21-seat theater, two detached guest houses and a tennis court with a viewing deck is what $18.8 million could buy in a Paradise Valley home.

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. — Located at the base of Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley is a long, gated drive that leads to a secluded, Spanish colonial estate that's selling for a whopping $18.8 million. 

The entire home was updated in the past year and includes two detached guest houses, a club room with a bar and a 21-seat movie theater. 

Perhaps the most interesting fact about the house, besides it being one of the most expensive in the neighborhood, is that it was previously owned by former Phoenix Suns player and NBA coach, Jason Kidd.

Kidd, who played point guard for the Suns from 1996 to 2001, purchased the home in 2009 and sold it in 2013 for $5 million. Today's multi-million dollar listing price is a 276% increase from what Kidd sold the mansion for 8 years ago.

The listing was provided by 72 SOLD on behalf of Local Board Real Estate in Phoenix. Here are more specs of the mansion.
