Hall of Fame Shaquille O’Neal will be setting up in Dallas but not as a Maverick instead as a homeowner after selling his Orlando mansion according to a Realtor article from June 23 which reports,
“Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal has scooped up a swanky estate in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, TX.
In an Instagram post, real estate agent Zac Gideo shared a photo with the NBA champion.
“Shaq & Zac has a nice ring to it,” Gideo wrote. “It was a pleasure and an awesome opportunity to help you find your new home in Dallas.”
While the final sale price wasn’t disclosed, the home built in 2005 was last on the market in April for $1,224,900.”
The outstanding Carrollton mansion doesn’t just have a luxurious look and design but it will include several wonderful amenities according to a Dirt article from June 23. They say,
“Sitting cheek-to-jowl with similarly sized homes on a quarter-acre plot, the stately stone-quoined European-inspired manor house spans 5,300 square feet with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, plus a pair of powder rooms.
Four fluted stone columns flank the front door, and two more flamboyant Corinthian columns stand between the foyer and the formal dining room. A library/office is handsomely wrapped in polished wood paneling, and lustrous beige marble floors run throughout the sprawling great room, which features a contemporary linear fireplace and walls of windows that overlook the backyard. No doubt the high ceilings were a selling point for the 7’1” former ball player.
Even more columns gussy up the main-floor master suite, where an oval window adds traditional elegance to the bathroom. Upstairs are four more bedrooms, each with a private bath, along with a small home theater that boasts tiered seating in leather movie recliners
Other highlights include a gated motor court, a three-car garage and two attic spaces for storage. Out back, an awning-shaded patio overlooks a lagoon-style swimming pool with stone fountain, beach entry and spill-over spa.”
Shaquille’s 31,000 square foot mansion in Windermere sold last October for $11 million, giving him a substantial amount to buy off his new home in Texas.
