Tuesday Sep 26th, 2017
Retired NBA basketball star Scottie Pippen is asking for $40,000 a month for his Harbor Beach waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale, according to the New York Post.
Pippen originally listed his 10,484-square-foot mansion at 2571 Del Lago Drive in 2014 for $11.8 million. A little more than three years later, the mansion remains on the market.
In November, Pippen knocked down the asking price to $10.9 million, a $600,000 markdown from his previous $11.5 million price. Pippen even tried luring buyers by throwing in a 55-foot Van Dutch yacht along with the residence, for a total of $12.5 million, but still no avail.
Gilles Rais of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Las Olas office has the listing, according to Redfin.
The six-bedroom estate at in Fort Lauderdale has seven full bathrooms and two half-baths. It features a fitness center, home theater and chilled wine room, plus a putting green, playground, hot tub, water slide, water fountains and a summer kitchen. Outdoor amenities also include a full-size NBA basketball court.
Pippen, a seven-time NBA All-Star, played for the Chicago Bulls from 1987 to 1998 and helped the Bulls win six National Basketball Association championships.
