NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal’s rambling, luxurious estate in the Orlando area is back on the market this spring. The property that began its run on the open market at $28 million is now priced at $16.5 million. The setting is leisurely, the house is palatial—31,000 sq. ft. with 12 bedrooms and 13 baths throughout—and the amenities include a lavish outdoor recreation area with a water park, a kitchen, and extravagant living, dining and lounging areas.

The home’s square footage amounts to a good deal of upkeep, and perhaps that is the reason why this lavish property hasn’t yet connected with a buyer. At $16.5 million, however, it represents a bargain, and a little thinking outside the box would peg it as an ideal corporate retreat and holdings trophy for a successful company.

The estate’s grounds encompass 3.94 acres—with plentiful frontage on Lake Butler—and among its specialty features are a NBA-certified, 6,000 sq. ft. indoor basketball court, a custom theater room, a recording studio, an aquarium room, a fitness studio, a walk-in safe, a lounge with a wet bar, an enclosed porch, a hardwood-paneled office, cabanas, a dock, and garage parking for 17 cars as well as outdoor parking.

Materials used to express the interiors of the house include marble and mahogany; the kitchen is large enough to support catering and the great room big enough for sizable gatherings. The owner’s suite is massive, and opens to a large private terrace overlooking the lake.

Shaq’s net worth is reportedly around $400 million.
