SHAQ LISTS MIAMI BEACH ESTATE FOR $25 MILLIONBy Danny Shea
Shaquille O’Neal has re-listed his Miami Beach estate for $25 million.
Shaq was at one point seeking $35 million for the 19,000 sq. ft. estate, which has been on and off the market since 2005. The home sits on two acres in Miami’s exclusive Star Island community.
The Phoenix Suns star bought the home while he was playing for the Miami Heat in 2004, for 18.8 million. Fellow athlete Alex Rodriguez was slated to buy the property in 2007 before his (now ex-)wife waffled, and a prospective buyer in November backed out after making a $19 million offer.
The listing advertises a gym, indoor racquetball court, tennis court, infinity pool with swim-up bar, and 300 feet of waterfront space along Biscayne Bay, in addition to a two bedroom guest apartment.
