A Mega-Mansion Just Big Enough for Superman

Hello everyone, it’s me Alan again, guest blogging.  I wanted to also share another one of my all-time favorite mega-mansions ever built in the USA.  The house is home to NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal.  He showed this home off on MTV Cribs.  On the episode, MTV said that the home is a massive 64,000 square feet, but most other public records state that the home is only 28,937 square feet, which is still huge!  I think the size is somewhere in between.

One of the cool things inside the home is an indoor basketball court.  The outdoor pool is nicknamed “Shaq-apulco”.  One note of interest is that Michael Jackson tried to purchase the home from O’Neal, but O’Neal said “no thanks.”  The address of the home is:  9927 Giffin Court, Windermere, Florida

    Shaq-apulco…..what a blowhard.
    It’s a nice house (haven’t seen the vid yet as we’re blocked @ my office) but I still don’t know why people prefer their dream homes to lack so much yard use. The entire lot is nearly taken up by the house.

    I would be out of breath from walking from one side to the other. I have never lived in Florida so I have to ask, isn’t there a problem with alligators if you are that close to a lake?

    For all the owner knows there could be alligators living on the other side of the house without anyone even noticing the house is so big haha.

    That’s a big monster.
    Definitely bigger than 29,000 square feet.
    I would guess at least 45,000.
