Listing of the Day
Location: Boca Raton, Florida
Price: $6.95 million
Tucked behind the garage of this six-bedroom home is a full-sized NBA-style basketball court, an exact replica of the Miami Heat’s court at the American Airlines Arena. The scoreboards even have a 24-second possession clock.
“They used the same installers as the Miami Heat—the same boards, the same rims,” said listing agent Ben Moss. “And it has a ridiculous sound system (60,000 watts via Crown amplifiers). Let’s call it a million-dollar gym.”
“It doesn’t mess with the size or look of the house, though,” he said. “Part of it is sunken below ground, behind one of the three-car garages, so you don’t see it.”

The 6,706-square-foot gym also has a gaming and display lounge, and a designated cardio area for spin cycles, treadmills, elliptical machines, and free weights, he said.
The one-story house was built in 1999, and the air-conditioned basketball court was added in 2012.
The house has an open floor plan with soaring ceilings and oversized impact glass windows that bring in lots of natural light. The connected kitchen, breakfast nook and family room are clustered near the pool area.
The kitchen has a butler’s pantry, six-burner Viking stove and other appliances by Sub-Zero, and a wet bar overlooks the living room, Mr. Moss said. “It’s a nice house for entertaining.”
The oversized master suite has two large walk-in closets, views of the pool area and an adjacent office.
There are three bedrooms in the children’s wing that share a common den and lounge area with built-in desks for homework.
“The backyard is like a resort setting,” Mr. Moss said, with a 100-foot-long pool and built-in spa, professionally installed playground area for children and a life-size chess board.
The 7,551-square-foot house has five bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and one partial bathroom. It sits on a 2.18-acre lot.
There is a one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse—which is included in these numbers—off of the covered summer kitchen.
Including the gym, there is more than 14,000 square feet of air-conditioned space, Mr. Moss said.
Along with the pool and gym, amenities include two three-car garages and a lighted tennis court. The covered outdoor kitchen features an ice maker, wet bar, grill and mini-fridge.
The house is within the gated Le Lac community, which has 32 multi-acre estates spread across about 200 acres, Mr. Moss said.
“Most of the community is lakes,” he said. “Every house is lakefront.”
The vibrant strip of Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, with lots of restaurants and other nightlife, is less than 10 miles away, he said. Several golf courses and country clubs are nearby, too.
