NBA superstar LeBron James, who spurned the Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers a summer ago, has officially exited South Beach with one last score.
The 11-time NBA All-Star this week sold his oceanfront compound in Coconut Grove, Fla., for $13.4 million, down from his original asking price of $17 million, but $4.4 million more than the $9 million he paid for the home in 2010.
Set on nearly half an acre, the walled and gated estate centers on a three-story contemporary with an elevator, a home theater, six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms in 12,178 square feet of space.
Designed for indoor-outdoor entertaining, walls of glass doors connect public rooms with a wide covered terrace. A separate entertainment wing features a lounge, a game room and a wet bar.
Outdoors, palm-topped grounds contain a guesthouse, separate security quarters, an infinity-edge pool and a 4,500-square-foot entertainment pavilion. Private dockage can accommodate space for up to two 60-foot yachts.
James, 30, led the Cavaliers to the NBA Finals in his first season back with the team. The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player previously led the Heat to four straight NBA Finals, winning two championships.
