Former Heat Star Hassan Whiteside Lists Miami Beach Mansion – Sun Sentinel
Utah jazz hub Hassan Whiteside has listed his Miami Beach waterfront mansion for sale for $23 million, more than three times what he paid in August 2016 after signing a multi-year contract with the Miami Heat.
The house, at 528 Lakeview Court, is actually in the name of a trust based in San Ramon, Calif., but Compass Florida, the brokerage that owns the listing, and numerous publications, including the Wall Street Journal, have identified Whiteside as the owner.
The 9,424 square foot mansion was built in 2014 and has six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It sits on a 0.41 acre lot with 100 linear feet of frontage on Surprise Lake, just off Biscayne Bay. Features of the two-story gated modern home include floor-to-ceiling windows, a movie theater, fitness center, multiple balconies, and smart home technology.
Outside, there is a swimming pool, a dock, an outdoor kitchen, a bar, a cabanon bath and a fire pit. There’s also a rooftop terrace on the third floor accessed by a red spiral staircase.
“Surprise Lake allows for a lot of privacy,” said Joseph Azar, an associate broker with Compass Florida in Miami Beach, which owns the listing. “It’s very tranquil and private.”
Azar said that after buying the house in 2016, Whiteside invested “a few million dollars” in renovations, including a smart home system, a spiral staircase to the roof, a kitchen aquarium and a koi pond. outside the house.
Whiteside bought the house in 2016 for $7.3 million. Azar said he was selling to buy a house with more square footage.
Whiteside was the 33rd overall pick in the second round of the 2010 NBA draft, where he was drafted by the Sacramento Kings. He also played for the Heat, Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz. He last played in the NBA playoff games between the Jazz and the Dallas Mavericks in April.
