Living Like Kazaam!!! In Sunny Florida

Well maybe exactly not like Kazaam – after all, if you were to buy Shaq’s Isleworth mansion in Orlando, Florida, you wouldn’t be moving into a dwelling the size of a boom box (you’d have to have seen the 1996 movie to get that reference). Instead, you’d be moving into a near-ridiculously oversized home with 31,000 square feet of total living space, fit for a king.

Shaquille O’Neal was a basketball legend after all, and his oversized home (dating back to his days playing for the Orlando Magic — where he got his start as a professional athlete) is currently listed for an oversized price, as well. The home, custom built especially for Shaq, including its private dock on exclusive Lake Butler, is now on the market for $28 million. Ready to take a sneak peek inside?

The Home That Shaq Built

This stunning two-story mansion takes up almost four acres—the home, not the grounds—and has many amazing custom features throughout, including a massive double staircase in its entryway, and a life-size mural of Shaq himself driving a semi truck named “Diesel” (one of his rap albums is titled, Shaq Diesel) into the home’s great room. The home is also adorned with multiple, custom-designed Superman logos, as one of Shaq’s longest-lasting nicknames has been “Superman.”

The property comes equipped with an arched porte-cochère — a covered entryway large enough for vehicles to pull through and load and unload passengers. The Florida mansion has multiple wings, an oversized backyard pool, a private boat dock, immaculate landscaping, a blue tile roof, and several auxiliary buildings, too.

This Orlando Living Space Has It All

In total, the home has twelve bedrooms, fifteen bathrooms (eleven of which are full baths), an Egyptian-themed aquarium room, a recording studio, a Superman-themed home theater, a car showroom and garage with room for seventeen automobiles, an indoor basketball court — complete with bleachers and a dance studio, a walk-in humidor, and a game room and bar.

In addition to the home’s two-story great room with marble fireplace and entryway with grand double staircase, it also has a full chef-worthy kitchen, as well as a wood-paneled formal dining room large enough to accommodate seating for sixteen. A two-way coral fireplace warms both the kitchen and a connected family room and dining nook.

The Bedrooms and Bathrooms – Bigger Than Most Homes

The home’s master suite is larger than many homes just on its own, and includes a massive master bedroom with a thirty-foot custom bed, his and her master baths, and a four-room closet with a dressing island and enough shelves to house a massive shoe collection.

The second floor of the home houses four en-suite bathrooms, two of which have balconies. As mentioned above, the home has fifteen bathrooms all together. The first floor of the home contains an additional full guest wing, including five more en-suite bedrooms, an additional Great Room, a bar, and a home office.

A House Built for the Big Aristotle

This home includes so many features, that it’s difficult to list them all in just one article. To complete the estate, behind the home, there is a massive outdoor kitchen and a cabana-lined ninety-five-foot outdoor swimming pool. The pool includes a rock waterfall and extends to fifteen feet deep. All of these outdoor features lead to a covered boat dock that’s set along a private stretch of sandy lakefront. The dock comes with a boat lift and a statue of Superman to guard against amphibious assault.
