The former NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire has opted to pass his highly stylized Florida mansion for $200,000 less than he paid for it a decade ago.
He’s placed the stylish Southwest Ranches, FL, home on the market for $3.5 million, after having purchased it in 2011 for $3.7 million.
That price chop certainly doesn’t reflect a lack of attention to detail. Stoudemire’s Landmark Ranch Estates home is a uniquely decorated home with such fancy features as soaring, coffered ceilings festooned with chandeliers.
Those high ceilings offer plenty of room to accommodate Stoudemire, who is a towering 6-foot-10, as well as his many friends and family members.
With six bedrooms and seven bathrooms in 8,675 square feet of living space, everyone can comfortably stretch out and relax.
Each room has been given the palatial treatment, with elaborate decorative touches throughout. Even the powder rooms have been intricately designed.
The kitchen is also the opposite of minimalistic, with custom millwork, an island and a peninsula, four ovens, a six-burner gas range, two dishwashers, and a large walk-in pantry.
The spacious, fully equipped outdoor kitchen is also a huge highlight. It’s ideal for entertaining guests, who can enjoy the lavish pool and spa, the immaculate landscaping, and the large lawns.
The two offices and a “secret” home theater, accessed via a hidden door, are also built on a grand scale, but the massive main suite is the crown jewel of the property.
That main suite features marble floors, luxe draperies, and access to the resortlike backyard through floor-to-ceiling sliders. There’s also an attached bonus room that could be used as a yoga room, studio, or nursery. It’s rounded out by a massive bathroom and a vast custom closet.
We aren’t the only ones in love with the spacious storage.
“The closet is absolutely to die for!” says the listing agent, Kim Knausz with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. “You feel like you’re shopping in a luxury boutique in the Miami Design District. It has custom-built, chic gray cabinetry, backlighting, and stainless-steel sliding ladders to reach high shelving.”
The living space is divided between a 7,361-square-foot main house with four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, and a 1,314-square-foot guesthouse with two bedrooms and one bathroom.
In addition, there’s a wealth of parking on the gated grounds. After guests pull up under the spacious porte-cochère, they can continue to the nine-car garage.
The six-time All-Star’s home is located in Landmark Ranch Estates, conveniently close to both Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
The path that led Stoudemire to his current position as player development assistant with the Brooklyn Nets is unique in the NBA. He played for four NBA squads before persistent knee issues forced him to retire from the league in 2016.
He also played professional basketball in China and Israel. He has earned dual American/Israel citizenship, and is the partial owner of the Hapoel Jerusalem basketball team.
His career highlights include being named NBA Rookie of the Year in 2003, and a brilliant beginning to his career with the Phoenix Suns. Off the court, Stoudemire has appeared in TV series including “Law & Order: SVU,” “Entourage,” “Sesame Street,” and “The Mindy Project.” He’s also appeared in the films “MacGruber,” “New Year’s Eve,” and “Trainwreck.”
