Charlie Villanueva, the former Connecticut Huskies star and NBA veteran, has sold his home in a gated Davie, Fla., community for $2.25 million.
Custom built in 2016, the resort-style house is amped up with a range of amenities. There’s a home theater with tiered seating, a billiard room and an executive office with a wall of flat-screen TVs. A circular staircase wraps around a pneumatic vacuum elevator in the entry.
The 7,648 square feet of polished living space also includes a center-island kitchen, a sauna, six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. In the living room, red walls accent a stone wall fireplace that runs from floor to ceiling.
Outside, a covered patio holds a lounge and outdoor kitchen. The blue-tiled swimming pool is decked out with dual water slides and a spa.
Villanueva bought the property prior to completion in 2015, records show.
The 33-year-old forward was part of the Connecticut men’s basketball team that won an NCAA title in 2004. A first-round NBA draft pick in 2005, he averaged 10.4 points and 4.6 rebounds across 11 seasons with the Raptors, Bucks, Pistons and Mavericks.
