Shaquille O’Neal selling Florida mansion for $28 million
Former Los Angeles Lakers Legend Shaquille O’Neal has put up his $28 million beachfront house near Orlando up for sale, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The 31,000 square foot house has 12 bedrooms and is located on three acres in the Orlando suburb of Windermere. The star feature on the property is the “Shaq Center.”
“The home also includes the “Shaq Center” facility, which contains a roughly 6,000-square-foot basketball court with bleachers and the logo of the Miami Heat.”

Shaq has always had a love for the sea, and saltwater fish tanks and the house features two of them. One of the fish tanks is built in front of a mural that features a truck that O’Neal is driving.
Outside the house is named the “Shaq-apulco” and it features what everyone dreams could be in their backyard, a swimming pool, and a Superman Statue.
A 95-foot-long swimming pool has a rock waterfall and hot tub. A swim-up bar provides access to a covered outdoor kitchen. A life-size Superman statue sits on a private, covered dock on the Butler Chain of lakes.
O’Neal has owned the house since 1993 when he bought the house for $3.95 million when he played with the Orlando Magic. Danial Natoli of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty is in charge of selling the house, and said that the house is move in ready, but the new owner will probably want to make a few chances to fit their taste.
