A 17,000-square-foot lakefront house in the Orlando area designed by its original owner, retired professional basketball star Horace Grant, has been re-listed for sale with a reduced $7.995 million asking price.

Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate agents Mick Night and John Pinel have the listing for the residence at 161 Palmer Avenue in Winter Park.

Grant, who spent part of his career in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a player for the Orlando Magic, designed the seven-bedroom house on a 2.1-acre lot in Winter Park for large-scale entertaining.

The residence has a ballroom large enough for 200 guests with a wet bar and service kitchen, plus a game room with a bar, a theater, gym and summer kitchen. Other features include seven bathrooms, five partial bathrooms and an elevator.

The master bedroom has a private balcony and staircase, walk-in closet with built-in shelving and fireplace.

The property also has 140 feet of frontage on Lake Maitland, a boathouse with a covered dock and lift, and a pool deck with terrace gardens, a spa and a heated infinity-style swimming pool. Four full-time house managers maintain the property.
