Paul Westphal, the decorated professional basketball player and former NBA coach, has sold his longtime home in Palos Verdes Estates for $3.4 million.

The hacienda-style house, built in 1958, came up for sale in late February and had an offer in hand in about two weeks. Westphal paid $1.49 million for the roughly half-acre property in 2004, property records show.

Set above the street, the 4,500-square-foot home features a rotunda entry, beamed ceilings and stone and hardwood floors. Living spaces include an updated kitchen, an office, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. An attached casita has additional quarters.
