Photographing ‘Shaq-apulco’ – Shaquille O’Neals $28 Million Florida Mega Mansion.

We photographed this a couple of years back now but I think its well overdue a revisit. We shot Shaquille O’Neal’s Orlando mansion in Windermere Florida for Dan Natoli at Premier Sotheby’s back in 2018. Shaq has had this place since 1993 when he picked up for just under $4 million dollars. At the time he was one year out of college and playing as a rookie for the Orlando Magic. Not a bad for your first home eh?

O’Neal’s master bedroom is 900 square feet, with a fireplace, projector, four-room walk-in closet, his-and-her master baths, and two balconies.


So we turn up for this shoot and my god this place is beyond big, there are Principalities in Europe that could probably fit into the grounds of Shaq-apulco. We do the tour of the home to see what we are getting into and see there is a bit of theme going on in this place. Lots and lots of Superman logos including one emblazoned across Shaq’s custom 15 by 30 foot round bed. Head to the living room and there is an articulated truck coming through the wall with a built-in custom fish tank featured the Superman logo. Head to the dock and there is a full-size superman statue overlooking Lake Butler.

An hour later and I’m pretty certain we have seen most of Shaquille O’Neal’s Orlando mansion. That includes the two-story foyer with double princess staircases. The 1,170 square feet great room with lake views, complete with a two-story stone fireplace. The indoor basketball court surrounded by framed memorabilia, and low-rise bleachers. The 95-foot-long pool that’s 15 feet deep at the far end, with a rock waterfall. An Egyptian-themed room with a saltwater fish tank, walk-in humidor, outdoor kitchen, cabana and more. Safe to say we are going to have a busy day.

Built in 1990, the house and its 4 acres are located on the shores of Lake Butler inside the prestigious Isleworth
