The childhood home of Kobe Bryant has just sold for $810,000, according toTMZ.

The home, which Bryant lived in during his teenage years, has five bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and it includes a basketball hoop.

"Every home has a story to tell and this one is not to be missed," the official home listing states. "It happens to be the former home of beloved NBA superstar Kobe Bryant. He spent his teenage years living at 1224 Remington and attended Lower Merion High School from 1992-1996. He took the basketball scene by storm and led his high school team to a state championship. The home's most significant feature is Kobe's basketball hoop in the driveway where he spent countless hours perfecting his craft."

Bryant played basketball at Lower Merion High School and dominated at all five positions. In his last three seasons, he led the team to a 77-13 record, and as a senior, Bryant averaged 30.8 points, 12 rebounds, 6.5 assists, four steals, and 3.8 blocks a game. He also helped the team win a state title, it's first in 50 years at the time.

Bryant's work on the court led to him being named Naismith and Gatorade High School Player of the Year and a McDonald's All-American.

The basketball legend tragically passed away in a helicopter crash along with his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others, who were with them traveling to a basketball game back in January.
