NBA legend Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal owns a highly customized $28 million mega-mansion in Orlando. The three-acre estate is located at 9927 Giffin Court in the Windermere suburb of Orlando and sits beside Lake Butler in a private golf community called Isleworth.
The enormous 12-bedroom home has 31,000 square feet of living space, with every room and detail supersized for the 7′1″ star.
The master suite has a 15-foot-wide circular bed bearing the Superman logo, a reference to one Shaq’s nicknames. The suite takes up a full wing of the home, complete with a four-room master closet and his-and-her master baths.
There are four other en-suite bedrooms, two with balconies on the second floor.
The formal dining room seats 16 amongst hand-crafted wood paneling and molding, and the chef’s kitchen has a six-foot, granite-topped cooking island along with multiple ovens and refrigerators.
A two-way coral stone fireplace connects the kitchen nook and family room on the main floor. It also includes a soundproof home theatre gallery hall, and a “gentleman’s room” full of entertaining accessories.
There’s also a walk-in cigar humidor.
Shaq’s design tastes are unique, to say the least. One of the rooms features a full-wall mural depicting Shaq as a tractor-trailer driver, with the front cab turned into a sculpture/aquarium that juts out into the room.
A salt-water aquarium room is covered in Egyptian hieroglyphics, and the Superman motif is spread throughout the home.
The former NBA star’s house unsurprisingly has a 6,000-square-foot indoor basketball court with bleachers.
Although fewer people would remember Shaq’s music career, despite his several Billboard 100 hits in the ’90s. It also boasts a 2,100-square-foot secondary garage with a dance studio and enclosed recording studio. Combined, the two garages can fit about 17 cars, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The outside patio, which is reportedly nicknamed “Shaq-apulco,” features a summer kitchen, a covered boat dock with an electric boat lift and a life-sized Superman statue, and a tiki-style open cabana overlooking the lake.
If guests aren’t fond of swimming in lakes, they can cool off in the 95-foot-long and 15-foot-deep pool with a custom rock waterfall or in the sunken hot tub.
