The heat is on to score LeBron “The King” James’ six-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bath, walled and gated estate in Coconut Grove. Currently listed for a cool $17 million, it’s presently being represented by none other than Haute Real Estate Network partner Tomi Rose, the senior vice president of Opulence International Realty’s sports and entertainment division.
The basketball star’s stunning mansion boasts 16,768 square feet of living area including 4,500 square feet of entertainment space, a movie theater, wine cellar, chef’s kitchen, dockage space for two 60-foot yachts, a guesthouse, an office, and an infinity pool with a large deck. James bought the home for $9 million in 2010.
The sumptuous bay-front “Great Room”—complete with a custom wet bar and Nana Wall wood-framed wall system— opens to the terrace, creating an exquisite balance between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The residence’s gourmet chef’s kitchen features mahogany cabinetry, two granite countertop islands, a commercial-style Wolf gas range, three ovens, two Bosch dishwashers, two Sub-Zero refrigerators, and a breakfast nook. There is also a lavish powder room fit for a queen, with goldleaf and Nacar Dorado on the walls, and a fossil-encrusted marble countertop.
In addition to a custom-made wine cellar and splendid laundry room with two washers and two steam-dry dryers, the first floor is where you can watch the game in the ultimate of luxury thanks to a custom theater with all-leather seats, acoustical panels, and a private bar, bath, and seating area.
A gorgeous master suite—outfitted with his-and-her baths—opens up to its own private sun deck and covered terrace. The three additional bedrooms also have private terraces and balconies. Equally breathtaking, the outside of the home is surrounded by tropical gardens, natural coral stone decks, and an enormous infinity pool that overlooks the Biscayne Bay.
