Shaquille O’Neill played for the Orlando Magic, it’s been decades, but he bought the mansion back in 1993, this time. Of course, he did not mean to keep it until he did so, for the first time in 2018 it was listed for sale. Now, the New York Post reports that after four re-listings and four price decreases, it has finally found a buyer for $ 16.5 million.
That’s more than the $ 3.95 million he spent back at the house when it was almost new, but slightly less than the $ 28 million he’d spent in 2018. Informally known as the superstar “Shaq Center”. The Orlando residence was described in its earlier listing as:
“The stunning property was designed with a lake view for almost every room. Other highlights include gated entry, full house Creston technology, 17 plus car garage with showroom details, 3 fireplaces, walk-in humdors and wine storage , In a 15-foot deep pool with two story ceilings, rock wall water feature, summer kitchen, custom chef’s kitchen, covered cabana and 10 foot privacy wall. “
The Shaq Center is spread over 31,000 square feet, with 12,000 and 11.5 bathrooms. But it is also replete with unique features, a reflection of Shak, the house builder over the last 25+ years. There is, naturally, an indoor basketball court that is 6,000 square feet in itself, as well as a designated cigar bar (complete with a walk-in florer), a private home movie theater, and a huge 17-car showroom is. Out back there is a huge swimming pool with its own rock formation and waterfall, an outdoor kitchen, a cabana and a private dock.
The house is also loaded with memorabilia from Shaq’s basketball and film career, but it is not known whether the anonymous buyer is getting any of it to keep. But you can take a look at all its mighty glory in the video below from Sotheby’s International Realty:
