Shaq Is Selling His Magnificent Florida House And, It’s A Slam Dunk!
It seems like Shaq is on the move once again. Pro basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal has put his 28-room lakefront mansion near Orlando, Florida on the market at $28 million. Shaq was a longtime Orlando-area resident and listed his Florida house for sale. This is magnificent Florida house will leave you breathless and in awe of the custom rooms, Shaq designed especially for his lifestyle and size too!
Shaq’s massive Lake Butler estate within the private golf community of Isleworth, about 30 minutes southwest of Orlando, is sized to feel spacious to a man of 7’1” weighing in at 325 pounds.
The master wing has a four-room closet, his-and-her baths and in the bedroom, a custom 15-foot round bed. The views from this Florida house are majestic indeed!
Measuring in at 31,000 square feet and spread across the entire three acres, the mansion includes 12 bedrooms, 15 baths, chef’s kitchen with Viking, Wolf, and Sub-Zero appliances, massive living room, formal dining, media room with bar and a “gentleman’s room” with game tables, and wet bar
Shaq has an equally majestic dining room where he hosts his get-togethers and holiday events.
The kitchen designs are simply stunning as well. You can tell Shaq had his Florida house designed for living large and in charge! Check out those ovens! Someone must have loved to cook up a storm in there.
Unusual extras include two garages that together will fit 17 cars, one a show-car garage with fitness center and the other having a dance studio and an enclosed recording studio, recalling his rap music hits of the 1990s.
Completely customized to fit his varied lifestyle, it is not surprising that one outstanding feature is an indoor 6,000-square-foot basketball court with bleachers.
Some unusual rooms include a temperature-controlled, cedar-planked humidor and wine storage and an aquarium-style room with a saltwater triangular fish tank. This Egyptian style room is mind-blowing.
Most impressive is the wall mural of a true-to-size tractor-trailer barreling toward the interior of the room on an expressway. With the front cab bumped out of the wall, the realism is electrifying. If you look closely, you can see Shaq’s face in the drivers set and his epic Superman logo just about every place in this house.
This home theater looks nice and comfy too. You can see Shaq is a huge fan of Superman too!
The grandeur doesn’t stop with the interior. Shaq nicknamed his party-perfect outdoor area “Shaq-apulco” quite aptly.
The 95-foot long swimming pool seems to go on forever and has a large waterfall spilling over boulders. It includes a swim-up bar and a spa large enough for a crowd. The pool deck also has an extensive outdoor kitchen, all of which looks out over Lake Butler, the long private pier with boathouse and the life-size statue of Shaq’s favorite character, Superman, standing at the end overlooking the lake.
The guest bedrooms are all designed beautifully as well. Think of how awesome it would be to be a guest at Shaq’s Florida house?
With majestic views in this Florida house, who would want to leave? Each bedroom is more beautiful than the last.
The simplistic designs and neutral colors make this house very visually pleasing and relaxing.
Of course, the bathroom design is just as eloquent and visually appealing. Using neutral tones throughout the house is a great way for future owners to add pops of color too.
You can imagine how much time he spent outdoors enjoying the pool and BBQ areas.
The grounds speak for themselves. Shaquille O’Neal – a big man with a big personality and stellar basketball career, is selling his equally large estate with a personality to match his own. His custom-designed home overlooking Lake Butler outside of Orlando, Florida where he has lived since 1993 is now on the market, priced at $28 million.
The listing agent is Danial Natoli of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, Orlando, Florida.
