NBA star Shawn Marion lists slam-dunk Texas home for $5.95 million
You may not be a basketball star, but now you can have the chance to live like one. Former Dallas Mavericks player Shawn Marion has just put his mega-modern estate at 4512 Isabella Ln. in Dallas' prestigious Preston Hollow neighborhood on the market. It is listed for $5.95 million.
Simmie Cooper built this 12,629-square-foot mansion in 2008 with a list of amenities so long it will make your head spin. Among the luxury features are a state-of-the-art game room, home theater, wood-paneled office, an extensive gym that doubles as a ballet studio, a temperature-controlled wine room, a glass mosaic resort-style pool with a travertine entertainment area, and, of course, an outdoor fireplace and grill.
There's also a private lounge lined with TVs and its own DJ booth (essentially an intimate nightclub). Car collectors take note: The four-car garage holds up to eight vehicles, which seems to be the magic number today.
On the amenity list that Rogers Healy sent over is this gem of a description about the home: “Double everything — microwaves ovens, dishwashers, laundry rooms, wet bars.”
Even the master closet has two levels. In the gourmet kitchen, the cabinets are striped lacquered mahogany, a gorgeous detail that's repeated in the main living room and master bedroom's massive fireplace walls, along the wet bar, and in accent cabinets throughout the home.
There are six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two powder baths, four living areas, and two dining areas. The master suite is seriously sexy, with a private sitting area, fireplace, and a round bathtub as the centerpiece of the master bathroom.
