When you walk into the lavish Harbor Beach home, the doormat offers a clue as to who lives there. The single letter“P” on the mat stands for Pippen – as in NBA basketball legend Scottie Pippen, known for winning six NBA titles with the great Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of the 1990s.
This extravagant 13,500-square-foot home scores big in luxury living, featuring a waterfront view with a boat slip, six bedrooms (one for every championship ring?), seven full and two half bathrooms, as well as a five-car garage, fitness room and an elevator. This home is fit for a champion.
The home’s architectural style has a European Mediterranean influence, with hints of Spain, Greece and Italy. The style is frequently referred to as Spanish Modern, but in many ways this home leans to a more traditional Italian style, with modern pieces.
Inside, the furniture selection ranges from simple dark leather seating to extremely formal. The powder rooms feature burnt orange, vintage color with gold sinks. Common design details throughout include the crown molding, dark cherry wood and extravagant chandeliers that all favor the traditional style.
The formal living room features a black piano and rustic medieval chandelier, a marble fireplace, dark cherry wood and modern pieces like silver vases and a black mirror coffee table.
The master suite elevates the elegant Italian traditional style with soft grey tone floral drapes, tray ceiling with a traditional style chandelier and an impressive tufted eight-foot silver headboard.
The master suite also features an outside balcony and a wet bar and walk-in closet. The master bath features a Jacuzzi tub, glass framed shower and private toilet and bidet room.
Other spaces include two dining areas, a TV room and a seven-seat movie theater. An expansive kitchen features Viking appliances, two refrigerators, a chilled wine room, butler’s pantry and an island that comfortably seats four.
If entertaining inside doesn’t satisfy, enjoy the Florida weather in the outside area that features a fully furnished, screened patio, kitchen, resort-style pool with a waterslide, waterfalls and a hot tub. And if you want to show off your basketball skills – or if Michael Jordan happens to drop by – there’s an NBA-dimensioned basketball court.
