Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning has reduced the asking price of his 10,121-square-foot bayfront mansion in Miami, Fla. from $10 million to $9.5 million.
Mourning, 37, paid $3.2 million in 1996 to buy the five-bedroom mansion new, according to public records. Located in the gated Anchorage subdivision in Miami's Coconut Grove area, the house, at 3525 Anchorage Way, has five full baths, one half bath, a rooftop deck, a four-car garage, a carport that can house six more vehicles, and a private boat harbor with three boat slips, according to listing information. Other features include a pool with a Jacuzzi, impact windows and doors, built-ins, exotic wood cabinetry, expansive teraces, and balconies, according to listing information.

Mourning is selling his Miami house because he and wife Tracy have new, bigger digs. They paid $12.75 million in late 2005, according to public records, to purchase a 13,086-square-foot bayfront mansion at 33 Arvida Parkway in Coral Gables, Fla. Built in 2004, Mourning's new house has eight bedrooms and a pool and sits on close to an acre. It also carries a whopping $223,203 tax bill, according to public records. Check out photos of Mourning's new house--from listing sheets back when it was listed several years ago--here and here.
The Miami Herald first wrote about Mourning listing his Miami house back in November 2006. Unfortunately, that article is not available online.
