Add Shaquille O’Neal to the list of sports stars who are moving real estate this summer. The former NBA legend has dropped more than $1.1 million on a property outside Atlanta, which makes for a convenient commute to his work at Turner, where he’s an NBA commentator for TNT.
O’Neal’s house does not disappoint: The property features two separate homes, along with a large backyard pool and a barn. Combine the two home and you’re looking at 7,400 feet of space — more than you and I might need, but just the right size for the Big Diesel.
Take a photo tour of Shaq’s new acquisition, which actually seems like a lot of house for that modest price. Let’s all move to Atlanta!
The main house is a five-bedroom, six-bath monstrosity. One has to wonder how often that sixth bathroom will get used.
30 Miles From Downtown Atlanta
The main house was built in 2008, while the smaller home had been constructed in 2006.
Space To Roam
Shaq’s new home is sitting on 14.3 sprawling acres of Georgia countryside.
Great For Entertaining
The pool area also features a hot tub, and there’s a half-bath built off the house that’s designed exclusively for pool use.
It remains unconfirmed whether the pool is deep enough to completely submerge Shaq.
The property sat on the market for more than a year before Shaq swooped in and bought it.
Class, Class, Class
Please tells us the piano comes with the house. Shaq tickling the ivories is an all-too-perfect-image.
Tall Ceilings Non-Negotiable
The oversized windows aren’t bad, either.
Dinner Is Served
The dining room seats more than 12 people, according to the listing.
Shaq’s new kitchen has an open floor plan with a view out onto the pool.
Built For Big Eaters
Granite countertops and custom cabinets highlight Shaq’s new kitchen space.
Kick Up Your Feet
Shaq got a relative bargain on the house, which was originally listed for $1.275 million.
The master bedroom features his and her walk-in closets.
Luxurious Bath Space
And a whole two-thirds of Shaq can fit into that bathtub.
A gaming center is one of three entertainment features in the finished basement, along with a fitness room and …
Every Night Is Movie Night
The home theater can seat a dozen people in its plush chairs, all of which offer a great view of the screen.
