LeBron James Lists Bay Front Coconut Grove Mansion

In 2010, professional hoopster LeBron James moved from Cleveland, where he played for the Cavaliers, to Florida in order to dribble and shoot for the Miami Heat. He quickly plunked down $9 million for a large, gated and newly constructed mansion wedged on to a narrow, .45-acre bay front lot in affluent Coconut Grove. Over the summer the well-compensated Mister LeBron signed back on the Cavs and, so snitched the kids at Curbed, has hoisted his empty manse in Coconut Grove up for sale with a heavy-duty $17 million price tag.

Listing details Your Mama thoroughly perused describe the bay front house as “the King’s palace” and show the 12,178-square-foot residence has six bedrooms, eight full and one half bathrooms, a “sommelier’s wine cellar,” home theater, an elevator, a 4,500 square foot entertainment terrace, an infinity edged pool that lights up like a Christmas tree, dock space for not just one but two 60-foot boats, a state-of-the-art security system — natch, a private generator and — in case anyone might be curious — annual taxes of $186,521.

Our research indicated Mister LeBron owns a couple of cribs in Akron, OH, including a seven-plus acre, gated compound with more than 30,000 square feet of interior space that he picked up in 2003 for $2.1 million.
