THE BREAKDOWN

  • LOCATION: Orlando, Florida
  • LISTING PRICE: $28 million
  • A-LIST OWNER: Shaquille O'Neal
  • TYPE: Single-Family
  • FLOOR SIZE: 31,000 square feet
  • ACREAGE: 3 acres

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.

Measuring in at 31,000 square feet and spread across the entire three acres, the mansion includes 12 bedrooms, 15 baths, chef's kitchen, massive living room, media room with a bar and a man cave with game tables and wet bar. 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.
