You may not be a basketball star, but you can certainly live like one. Former Dallas Mavericks player Shawn Marion has just put his Preston Hollow mega-modern estate at 4512 Isabella Lane on the market. Rogers Healy and Veronica Lind have it listed for $5.95 million.
Simmie Cooper built this 12,629-square-foot mansion in 2008 with so many amenities the list will make your head spin. Among the luxury features are a state-of-the-art game room, home theater, an extensive gym that doubles as a ballet studio, a private lounge with a DJ booth — essentially an intimate nightclub, a temperature-controlled wine room, a glass mosaic resort-style pool with a travertine entertainment area, and of course a fireplace and grill. Car collectors take note: the four-car garage holds up to eight vehicles, which seems to be the magic number today.
What I love most on the amenity list Rogers Healy sent over is the following description of the gourmet chef’s kitchen:
“Double everything — microwaves ovens, dishwashers, laundry rooms, wet bars.”
The cabinets are striped lacquered mahogany, and I don’t recall ever seeing anything this beautiful in any kitchen, anywhere, ever.
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.
Yes, Candy has been in that bathtub. No, not with Shawn Marion. Just don’t ask! All we can tell you is our fearless leader goes the distance to get the scoop, and when this baby was finished in 2008, she was one of the first to get inside that gorgeous front door.
Shawn Marion has had quite the career. In 2009 he was traded to the Mavs and won the NBA championship in the 2011 NBA Finals. He’s only one of four NBA players, along with Hakeem Olajuwon, Karl Malone, and Kevin Garnett with at least 17,000 points, 9,000 rebounds, 1,500 steals, and 1,000 blocks.
I’m betting that private nightclub saw a lot of celebrating!
