NBA great Scottie Pippen sweetens the deal for his Florida estate


Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen is taking another pass at selling his mansion on the water in Fort Lauderdale, reducing the asking price to $10.9 million. But if you’d like to buy his 55-foot Van Dutch yacht along with the place, the price is $12.5 million.

The estate of the six-time NBA champion has nearly 13,500 square feet of living space. Built in 2004, the Italianate house features a three-story foyer, a temperature-controlled wine room, a home theater, six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and two powder rooms. There’s a fitness room of course. An expansive terrace overlooks the 215 feet of waterfront.

Called Villa Del Lago, the nearly three-quarter-acre property is designed for resort living with patios, an outdoor kitchen and a pool area that includes a spa, waterfalls, a water fountain play area and a giant water slide. Did we mention the waterfront basketball court and putting green?


Pippen, 51, played small forward, making seven All-Star teams and eight All-Defensive First Teams over 17 seasons. He and Larsa Pippen, who was on the reality show “The Real Housewives of Miami” for a season in 2011, are in the process of a divorce.

The property first came on the market two years ago at $11.8 million.

Gilles Rais of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
