NBA star Scottie Pippen’s former mansion features full-size basketball court – The Denver Post


A 12,868-square-foot waterfront mansion in Fort Lauderdale, previously owned by former NBA basketball player Scottie Pippen, has features sure to delight any family — and it can be yours for under $20 million.

The home, at 2571 Del Lago Drive, sits on .72 acres in the exclusive Harbor Beach neighborhood, a gated community popular with boaters because of its deep water and quick access to the inlet leading to the ocean.

Listed for $19.995 million, the two-story Mediterranean mansion was built in 2004 and has seven bedrooms, eight full baths and two half baths.

Interior features include a theater room, club room, wine room, gym, a chef’s kitchen, an elevator, a playroom and a six-car garage that can store 10 cars with lifts.

Outside, there is a resort-style pool with a water slide, a putting green, a dock, an outdoor kitchen and a full NBA basketball court. The house sits on a double lot, with 215 linear feet of water frontage on a deep-water canal.

“It is a gorgeous property,” said Gilles Rais, a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Realty in Fort Lauderdale, who holds the listing. “The layout is beautiful, and it has all the amenities you can dream of.”

Public records show that the current owners purchased the home in September 2021 from a trust controlled by Pippen for $10.545 million. Rais said they are relocating to a home in Miami Beach.

Pippen was selected in the first round of the 1987 draft by the Chicago Bulls and also played for the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers before retiring in 2004. The six-time NBA champion is a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
