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.

Mario Stocco and Marc Brandt of Douglas Elliman had the listing.
