.@MiamiHeat star Chris Bosh cuts asking price for his Pacific Palisades mansion to $12.5 million

Chris Bosh may not have given a discount to return to Miami this summer, but the nine-time NBA All-Star is willing to take less money for his mansion-estate in Pacific Palisades.

Bosh, who signed a $118-million extension that will keep him with the Heat for the next five seasons, has adjusted the price on his hilltop home to $12.5 million, down from $14.5 million.

The Mediterranean-style residence, on 1.45 acres in Pacific Highlands, is entered through a two-story foyer with a sweeping staircase. Balinese-inspired interiors over 10,755 square feet of living space have slab concrete and hardwood flooring, detailed molding, skylights and telescoping walls of glass.

Framing ocean views, the master suite sports a fireplace, a sitting room, an exercise room and a massive walk-in closet. The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom residence also has an library/office with a fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, a wine cellar and an entertainment level complete with theater, sports bar and billiards table.

Outdoors, landscaped grounds center on a large infinity pool with a swim-up bar and a sitting area with a sunken fireplace. Cabanas, an outdoor kitchen and a covered lounge with a fireplace complete the resort-like setting.

Bosh, a two-time NBA champion, purchased the property in December 2012 for $9.4 million, records show. In addition to the new list price, the property is also available for lease at $45,000 a month. Shen Shulz of Sotheby‚Äôs International Realty is the listing agent.

The 30-year-old also maintains a 12,300-square-foot residence in Miami Beach, a 4,200-square-foot condo at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Dallas and a pair of properties in Desoto, Texas.
