Built in 2016, the 12,500-square-foot, five-bedroom, 10-bath home is located on the edge ofÂ Lake Nona Golf & Country Club. From his backyard,Â the three-time All-Star can watch golfers attempt to navigate the clubâs 16th holeâitâs a punishing par-4 with twin sand traps near the green.
The house itself is open and modern, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors in most of the rooms. When open, they create the ultimate indoor-outdoor party space.
Exteriorrealtor.comItâsÂ designed around a central courtyard, which has four palm trees and a well-groomed putting green. Surrounding the courtyard are a large sitting area, two bedrooms, a gallery hallway, and the entertainment area.
Courtyardrealtor.comThe entertainment area has a skinny, glass-enclosed fireplace (with a distinctive honeycomb tile design), bartenderâs station, and dramatic wine bar. In listing photos of the room, thereâs also a dining table, sitting area, and baby grand piano.

Just beyond the entertainment area are the infinity pool, sun shelf, and floating spa. There are two outdoor grillsâone by the pool, and the other on the 1,775-square-foot rooftop terrace. The terraceâs kitchen is particularly cool, with a long wet bar and multiple TVs mounted above the grilling station.
