Everything’s bigger in Texas, luxury homes included. And the latest example of opulent real estate to hit the Dallas market is the former mega-mansion of six-time NBA All-Star Jermaine O’Neal, which recently resurfaced on the market for $12.4 million in the suburb of Southlake.

A former Indiana Pacers center and power forward, O’Neal played for an additional six teams throughout his athletic tenure — none of which were in Texas- before retiring in 2016.

Still, O’Neal chose to settle in Southlake for its prestige, allure, and vicinity to vibrant Dallas, which happens to be the home of his favorite football team, the Cowboys.

And while he parted ways with the house some while back, for us, the retired NBA star’s home at 940 W Dove Rd. scores as many points as its previous owner racked up over his career.

Designed by the esteemed local builder Michael Kindred and sitting on nearly 5 landscaped acres, the Southlake, Texas house is anything but humble.

The elegant and modern Mediterranean-style mansion has everything you could ask for in a property and more, with 8 bedrooms, 10 full baths, and 3 half baths spanning over an impressive 16,000 square feet of living space.

Curated details like the natural limestone and custom wood flooring elevate the mansion while offering a homey feel despite its massive size.

A two-story open living space stuns with statement chandeliers, glossy marble finishes, and colossal windows overlooking the grounds beyond.

Meanwhile, the upscale kitchen boasts all the bells and whistles of a multi-million dollar home, including double sinks and dishwashers, state-of-the-art Wolf Brand appliances, and a spacious walk-in pantry.

The dining areas and additional living room all feature large windows that provide ample natural lighting while offering views of the surrounding scenery — a common theme throughout the property.

Whichever couple or bachelor(ette) snatches the sizable mansion can truly spoil themselves in the master suite featuring a spacious shower and soaking tub, his and her closets, and a cozy bedroom with intricate crown molding for an extra dose of opulence.

In addition to the closets, a pair of exclusive his and her home offices mean the next owners can get down to business without distractions before unwinding lavishly in the home’s entertainment areas.

The future homeowner of 940 W Dove Rd. can get the party started in the posh game room, complete with a billiard table, bowling alley, wet bar, and private theater.

Outside, a resort-style oasis boasts an outdoor kitchen and two covered seating areas- including a cabana with a fireplace- to wine and dine al fresco in unparalleled comfort.

What steals the show, though, is the mega pool featuring a slide, mood lighting, and a spa corner for ultimate relaxation.

Moving back indoors, you’ll find a home gym that’s anything but average, offering lockers, a full bath, and a sauna for an elevated workout worthy of a pro athlete.

What’s more? You guessed it — an indoor basketball court totaling 8,300 square feet, almost like a tribute to the home’s former basketball star owner.

Anyone who values privacy or throwing lavish parties will appreciate all 4.828 acres of this sprawling compound. Thanks to its six-car garage and motor court in the back of the grounds and charming grand circle entry to the front, a lengthy list of guests can be easily accommodated.

We think the now-retired Pacers player’s home is just as outstanding as his athletic record. And while O’Neal parted ways with the property in 2022, he left the mark of his basketball legacy behind. Sherri Murphy of Coldwell Banker Realty Dallas is now listing the buff all-star home in the Lone Star state for $12.4 million.
