Mark Cuban, the billionaire, television personality and owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball franchise, has a new vacation spot to spend his off-seasons. He’s paid $19 million for a home in Laguna Beach, California.

The contemporary-style home is located within Montage, a resort community that overlooks the ocean. Built in 2010, the stone-finished house has a gated courtyard entry, high ceilings, mahogany finishes, six bedrooms and 7.75 bathrooms. There are bifolding walls of glass in the common areas for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining.

A center-island kitchen, two family rooms, an office/den and a formal dining room exist within about 7,900 square feet of interior space. On a lower level, reached by a floating glass staircase, a media room boasts a wall of flat-screen TVs. A wet bar and a glass-enclosed wine cellar complete the space.

Outside, ocean views and lush landscaping create a backdrop for a swimming pool and a fire pit. A built-in barbecue area sits nearby.

The property had been on the market since January with an asking price of $25.995 million.

Cuban, 60, co-founded the internet radio company Broadcast.com, which was sold to Yahoo during the dot-com boom of the 1990s for $5.7 billion in stock. He purchased a majority stake in the Mavericks in 2000. Under Cuban’s ownership, the team won an NBA title in 2011 and is now valued among the top franchises in the league.
