Basketball star Mike Miller’s former waterfront pad in Pompano Beach was just sold for $5.235 million.

The three-story mansion is located at 2308 Bay Drive in the posh Hillsboro Shores neighborhood of Pompano Beach. Through its large floor-to-ceiling windows, the home overlooks a wide inlet that connects the ocean to Florida’s Intracoastal Waterway.

Arguably the 9,717-square-foot home’s most impressive feature is its location, listing agent Kevin Kreutzfeld told The Real Deal. The mansion’s entire southern exposure has views of the historic Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, a skeletal navigation tower that was erected at the turn of the 20th century.

“It’s an iconic location,” he said. “I mean, how many lighthouses are there up and down the coast?”

On the inside, this Mediterranean Revival-style house has exotic finishes: onyx countertops, European kitchens and intricate millwork in the ceilings, Kreutzfeld said.

The first floor is a kind of entertainment center: it has a billiards room, two Kegerators and its own full kitchen. The floor also opens out to a shaded portion of the outdoor pool, which features a mosaic medallion inlay and a swim-up pool bar.

Kreutzfeld, who works for Premier Estate Properties, said the buyers are an American couple from the Midwest. He declined to talk about them further, or name the seller.

Broward County records show the home’s owner was a Florida company named A Spot in the Sand. Its manager is Sergio Gabriel Selcer of Coral Springs.

Selcer was the winner of a 2012 auction for the estate, which was originally put on the market for nearly $8 million by former Miami Heat player Mike Miller. The bidding closed at significantly lower than that: $3.355 million.

Platinum President Trayor Lesnock chalked it up to rowdy boaters. He told the South Florida Business Journal at the time that the nearby beach routinely attracted scores of partiers, which made privacy difficult at the home.

Miller had only owned the home for about two years before putting it up for auction. He originally paid $5.4 million for the manse in 2010, according to county records.
