This splendid estate in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area comes to the open market courtesy of current owner Jermaine O’Neal. The retired NBA star is asking a shadow under $10 million for the compound property in Southlake.
At just under five acres, the lot is expansive enough to provide residents with considerable privacy and breathing room. The estate’s layout takes full advantage of the possibilities inherent in the available space, with much of the acreage dedicated to lawn space. A backyard entertainment and recreation area is designed around a massive pool with a waterslide, while a large motor court in front is the terminus of a luxuriously long driveway.
The house measures nearly 17,000 square feet. It’s a rambling giant of a home, with an interior living style that is pleasingly warm and very graceful. The foyer states the theme, with inlaid marble floors and a sculptural floating staircase waiting behind an arched set of double front doors inset with wrought iron panels. Plank oak floors are featured in the master bedroom, a cozy space with a concept ceiling.
This house also has a comprehensive list of amenities to its credit; on the roll are a bowling alley and an interior basketball court, a sauna, a gym, a home cinema, a wood-paneled office, and a formal dining room with a soaring double-height ceiling.
