Shaquille OíNealís house on Star Island, Miami Beach, one of the most exclusive locations in Florida, sold and closed for $16,000,000. The 2-story architectural masterpiece was previously owned by former Miami heat player Rony Seikaly, who sold it to Shaq. The property was purchased by super-model NAOMI CAMPELLís billionaire boyfriend, Vladislav Doronin.
Exclusive Star Island is the setting for this one-of-a-kind Mediterranean-style estate. Star Island sits like a floating jewel in the aquamarine waters of Biscayne Bay, between the main land and Miami Beach. The waters surrounding the island are part of the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve. Star Island is not only coveted for its supreme, unspoiled waterfront location and limited amount of residents, but also for its extreme privacy. Accessible by just one bridge, the gated enclave boasts many famous residents as well as Miamiís wealthy elite.
This gracious architectural masterpiece estate along with its inviting and private 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest house with kitchen, is painted upon canvas of verdant tropical landscaping set against the bright azure Miami sky. Meticulously manicured foliage, tall swaying palms and sweeping emerald lawns adorn this 2.45 acre property. Billowy clouds drift overhead, reflected in the deep waters of the bay that lap the seawall of this magnificent estate with a private dock, boat lift and unfettered access to the bay and the ocean beyond. Salty evening breezes provide refreshment after a round of tennis on the estateís full-size tennis court or as you relax beside the exquisite infinity-edge pool after a game of basketball (could be easily converted back to a racquetball court) on the residenceís indoor court. The grand and stylish infinity-edge pool and patio area with full size wet bar and built-in barbeque is the perfect setting for entertainment day or night. A 6-car garage and a pavered circular driveway entrance that is dramatically lit in the evening and bejeweled with a flowing fountain are just hints of the grandeur that awaits you within.
