Can any Cleveland Cavaliers fan doubt where LeBron James' devotion lies at this point? Not only has he led the team to this year's NBA finals, but he really sealed his commitment to the Forest City when he decided to sell his compound in the Coconut Grove section of Miami, Florida. An update from Zillow has it that the property, last listed for $15 million, is under contract.
At nearly a half acre, the gated property consists of a 12,178-square-foot main house and a guest house. It's a modern, three-level compound, with six bedrooms, eight and a half bathrooms, and enough amenities to keep occupants disinterested in the outside world for days. Let's start with the exterior, where a three-car garage and parking court offers loads of space to welcome visitors. But this place has more than just car parking; try docking space for two 60' yachts.
Once you're in, it's hard to leave unless you got word of a not-to-be missed party going on somewhere. The heavy dark wood is offset by gleaming white floors and walls. All of the rooms on the main floor have two features in common: views of the endless Atlantic, and sophisticated paneling and woodwork in the ceilings. Athletes are always in search of delectable fuels, right? The vast kitchen, sorry culinary suite, is outfitted with a wall of cabinetry, modern appliances, and two islands: one for washing and prepping, and another for final presentation and eating. There is also a formal dining room and wet bar nearby.
A dedicated home office combines modern functionality with traditional looks, and there is also an eight-seat home theater for ultimate viewing. The bedrooms are pure luxury, including a couple in the back of the house that feature spa-like bathrooms and balcony access overlooking the ocean, and the master suite has a walk-in closet with an island dresser.
The infinity pool faces the ocean, for goodness sake. So residents or guests can actually stop to soak and let their troubles drift away. Where they go, nobody cares. It also has a waterfall feature, and in a festive touch, can be programmed to display a multicolored light show at night.
