Retired NBA star Shaquille ‘Shaq’ O’Neal is one of the best professional basketball players of all time, so it’s not surprising to see that he owns an extremely opulent home
. Measuring at a whopping 7’1” tall, the accomplished athlete seems to enjoy having a large primary residence to match his stature. His 31,000-square-foot Florida manse, boasting tons of fun customizations, is newly on the market asking $28 million.Located in an Orlando suburb on 3 acres of lush land, the expansive house offers 12 bedrooms, 11 full baths, four half baths, and a 17 car garage. If you think that’s ritzy, you haven’t seen anything yet. A fitness center, referred to as the “Shaq Center,” comprises of a 6,000-square-foot basketball court and outside, a 95-foot long pool comes with a rock waterfall and hot tub.When it comes to the design of the structure itself, it was carefully constructed to allow for sweeping lake views from every room. Big windows and high ceilings create an airy and bright feel throughout the home while beautiful dark woodwork and rich colors cement the abode’s grandeur.According to Mansion Global
, Shaq snagged the luxury property in 1993 when he was playing for the Orlando Magic. It cost him $3.95 million, but the many renovations and customizations he made have surely added to that number. Either way, he’s poised to make a multi-million dollar profit if it sells for asking price. Danial Natoli of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty
has the special listing, which has been Shaq’s home for 25 years.
