  • TYPE: Single-Family

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, Fla., where he has lived since 1993, is now on the market, priced at $28 million.

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 seven-foot-one-inch, weighing in at 325 pounds. Completely customized to fit his varied lifestyle, it's not surprising that one outstanding feature is an indoor 6,000-square-foot basketball court with bleachers. Unusual extras include two garages that together will fit 17 cars, one a show-car garage with a fitness center and the other having a dance studio and an enclosed recording studio.

The master wing has a four-room closet, his-and-her baths and in the bedroom, a custom 15-foot round bed. The guest wing has its own great room with a bar and five ensuite bedrooms. Included in the 28-room count is a temperature-controlled humidor, wine storage and an aquarium-style room with a saltwater fish tank.

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 a boathouse and a life-size statue of Shaq's favorite character, Superman.
