Warren Sapp may have exited bankruptcy, but the star is still being forced to sell off many of his costliest possessions starting with his 15,000-square-foot Tuscan mansion in Windemere.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer was ordered by the bankruptcy courts to auction off the whopping house, which boasts four large bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half-baths. If you have a few million bucks lying around, you could soon own a bit of Warren Sapp history. The house goes under the hammer at 11 am on November 1.
The property was built in 2005 at a cost of almost $7 million and includes a wine cellar, a movie theater, an ostentatious resort-style swimming pool with waterslide, 10,100 square feet of living space, and a dock on Lake Butler.
You’ll also get to live in the exclusive Reserve at Lake Butler Sound, a suburb that Fisher Auction Co., which is handling the auction, promises is “home to high-profile celebrities, professional athletes and business executives.”
The value of the house has been placed at around $3.4 million by the Orange County property appraiser’s website.
The luxurious mansion is being sold to clear the bulk of Sapp’s $6.7 million debt. A federal judge in South Florida threw out Warren Sapp’s bankruptcy case last week due to the NFL Network analyst being able to pay off a hefty chunk of his debt.
That ruling came after Sapp filed for Chapter 7 protection in April, with a debt that exceeded $6.7 million and assets to the tune of $6.5 million. Said assets listed included a lion’s rug, over 200 pairs of Air Jordan shoes, a watch worth $2,400, and a large painting of a nude woman.
Anyone interested in landing themselves Warren Sapp’s mansion can head to the Fisher Auction Co. site; the auction itself will take place at the Orlando Airport Marriott, 7499 Augusta National Drive, Orlando.
