Shaquille O’Neal’s Orlando mansion has (finally, actually) been purchased


Former Orlando Magic center and NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal's Orlando-area mansion has finally been purchased.

For several years, Shaq's mansion in Windmere came and went from the market as regularly as the tides. It went out on the market and came back unsold. The one-time most expensive house in the Orlando area dropped in asking price repeatedly since being listed at $28 million several years back.

It finally hit the sweet spot, going for an absolute song at $11 million. Benjamin Hillman of Premier Sotheby's International Realty has the realtor to finally get a deal done.

"Over the past few years, four other agents tried and failed to sell this extraordinary estate. I was lucky No. 5," he said in a statement. Shaq trusted me to find him a buyer, and I assured him I was the agent to do it. I seek out complicated deals and work to make them happen."

The 12-bedroom, 15-bath estate sits on Lake Butler in the gated Isleworth community, and has a 6,000-square-foot indoor basketball court, a theater room, a 17-plus car garage, and a 15-foot-deep pool with a rock wall climbing feature.
