A little over a year after purchasing it, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has listed his luxurious spread in a gated equestrian community in Bell Canyon, CA, for $2.5 million. In the short time he’s owned the place, quite a few improvements were made. Could the Hall of Famer be taking a shot at upscale flipping?
Since he bought the 1-acre property in 2018 for $1,815,000, he’s given the place new carpeting, fresh paint, customized closets, and improved landscaping. The HVAC system, the garage door, and some of the plumbing were also updated. The home was also decorated with mementos from O’Neal’s remarkable career.
The contemporary home was originally built in 1990, and had great bones when O’Neal bought it. The five-bedroom, 4.5-bath home measures 5,217 square feet. All of the living spaces are generous, so the former center had plenty of room to roam.
Guests get a grand first impression when they step into the black and white, two-story formal entry with the large staircase and circular gallery. Any doubts that O’Neal actually lived here can be erased with a quick glance and at the portrait and the trophies that greet you.
The chef’s kitchen—equipped with marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances—is conveniently situated between a breakfast room with a scenic view and a cozy family room with a fireplace.
Upstairs, the master suite has a vaulted ceiling, sitting area, fireplace, dual walk-in closets, and a massive bath with a dual rain shower and tub for two.
There are also luxury features outdoors, including a rock-rimmed heated pool and spa, manicured lawns, a fire pit, and multiple seating areas.
These days, the big man spends most of his time on TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and on his busy endorsement business.
It also appears that O’Neal is giving the sale of his multimillion-dollar estate in Hollywood, FL, a rest. He listed it in 2018 for $28 million, before reducing the price to $21,990,000 last December. Records indicate no sale took place, and the property is currently off the market.
Tomer Fridman and Jonathan Siegfrired of Compass have the listing on the Bell Canyon property.
