A big man needs a big house. Retired NBA power forward Antonio McDyess measures 6 feet 9 inches, and just scored a house of equally epic proportions—a 10,287-square-foot mansion in Houston, TX, that he won at a no-reserve auction for an undisclosed amount.
The auction was held on Oct. 3 for the luxury mansion, which was last listed in September for $3,025,000.
Built in 2015, in the Spanish-Mediterranean style, the six-bedroom, 6.5-plus-bath abode is refined and elegant, with gorgeous hardwood floors, a creamy color palate, and endless opportunities to customize.
Cozy spaces are tucked among large-scale areas for sophisticated entertaining, as well as wide-open outdoor spaces, courtesy of the nearly 1-acre lot. Located in the coveted Spring Branch community, the mansion can be found just 20 minutes from downtown.
This isn’t the All-Star’s first foray into big-time Houston real estate. In 2013, he listed a waterfront home in nearby Montgomery for $2.275 million, and it sold about a year later for an undisclosed amount.
The 45-year-old retired from the NBA in 2011, after a 16-year career with teams including the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Detroit Pistons, and San Antonio Spurs.
The Mississippi native played college basketball with the University of Alabama, and became the second-overall NBA draft pick in 1995. He will be one of six 2020 inductees to the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in August, according to the Clarion-Ledger.
