The house was built in 2005 and Shaq paid just $1.55 million for the estate, which was about 27% more than the $1.22 million it was listed for in April.Shaquille O’Neal Goes Big in Texas and Scores a Dallas-Area Mansion. www.realtor.com
While the house is quite a bit smaller than the 8-figure estate he formerly owned in Windemere, FL, it’s located in a gated community and should be an excellent place for Shaq to reside while he grows his Big Chicken restaurant chain in the Dallas area.Shaq Brings Big News and Big Chicken to Texas. www.dallasobserver.com
