Shaq Putting Orlando Mansion Up For Sale At $22 Million

By on January 6, 2019 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Shaquille O'Neal first became a worldwide celebrity as part of the Orlando Magic roster, but now he's reportedly moved to Atlanta and is listing his Shaq-sized mansion in Orlando for $21.9 million – after first listing it back in May for $28 million. And as you might expect for The House That Shaq Built, it's a truly unique living space with plenty of bells and whistles. Shaq originally bought the land for this property in 1993 for $4 million. He then proceeded to custom build an absolutely ridiculous mansion.

How big is Shaq-sized? The home measures in at 35,000 square feet, but it's O'Nealean in its intangible proportions as well, with one-of-a-kind touches like the 6,000-square-foot indoor basketball court personalized as "Shaq Center," and a living room with a giant wall-sized mural depicting a large diesel semi-truck with Shaq's signature Superman logo actually sticking out of the wall and charging towards the viewer. As per the Sotheby's International listing for the house:

"The astonishing estate was designed with lake views in mind for almost every room. Other highlights include gated entry, full house Crestron technology, 17 plus car garages with showroom details, 3 fireplaces, walk-in humidor and wine storage, two story ceilings, 15 feet in depth pool with rock wall water feature, summer kitchen, custom chef's kitchen, covered cabana and 10-foot privacy wall."

The main level of the house has an expansive guest area with five suites, and on the second level you'll find Shaq's 900-square-foot master bedroom, as well as a bathroom complete with a urinal. Then there's the ancient Egyptian themed "aquarium-style room" with a triangular saltwater fish tank for any exotic fish viewing needs, and another fish tank sporting another Superman logo. For more exciting viewing, there's the home theater, currently adorned with posters from films like Reservoir DogsThe WolverineThe Godfather, and of course a few Superman titles (I don't see any movies starring Shaq, however).

The garage is expansive enough for 17+ cars, and the house has room for all manner of Shaquenalia (presumably not included with the purchase price). You can take a look at the Shaq Palace in the real estate video below:


In September 2020 Shaq lowered the asking price to $19.5 million.
