Shaq Finally Sells His California Home for $1.9M After Price Cut — See Inside!
The contemporary home has an open floor layout with five bedrooms and five baths
Shaquille O'Neal has finally sold his Bell Canyon home!
The former NBA star and sportscaster, 48, put his Southern California house on the market in November 2019 for $2.5 million, listed with Tomer Fridman and Jonathan Siegfried Compass. The home was eventually relisted with Emil Hartoonian and Nicholas Siegfried of The Agency, who sold it over the weekend for $1.850 million — $650,000 less than the original asking price.
Located in a gated community, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom contemporary home has an open layout with a two-story foyer where Shaq displayed some of his basketball trophies and artwork dedicated to his time with the Los Angeles Lakers.
A second living room can be found off the home's kitchen, which comes complete with marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances.
Listing photos show a cozy den featuring a fireplace and a painting of 2Pac.
The first floor also includes a dining room, a media room with a full DJ set-up, and a home office Shaq decorated with a portrait of himself smoking a cigar overlooking the desk.
Upstairs, one can find the master bedroom, which comes equipped with dual walk-in closets, its own fireplace, a rain shower and jacuzzi bathtub.
A second bedroom also has it's own ensuite bathroom, while the third and fourth bedrooms share a bath and second jacuzzi tub.
The home's lush backyard includes a heated pool and jacuzzi, along with a fire pit and outdoor seating. The property is also walking distance from a community center, gym and tennis court.
In February 2020, Shaq tried to sell the home himself in an unconventional way: via Instagram.
"I'M SELLING MY HOME IN BELL CANYON CA," he captioned a post, sharing the house's real estate listing along with a video tour of the luxurious residence.
"It can be all yours for $2.5M," he wrote, before leaving an email for "SERIOUS buyers" to contact for more information.
O'Neal also famously has a massive multi-million dollar home, dubbed Windemere Manor, in Florida. The basketball star first listed that house — complete with an indoor basketball court — for sale in March 2018 with a price tag of $28 million.
In December 2018 he dropped the price to $22 million and relisted it again for $19.5 million in September 2020.
