Antoine Walker’s financial situation has been no secret over the past few years; just recently he plead guilty to a felony in a Las Vegas casino case and at just 35 years old he has reportedly blown over $100 million. His home here in Coconut Grove was just a small piece of the pie but was so burdened with liens and lawsuits that it was un-sellable for many years. The home came on the market in 2009 priced at $3,500,000 as a short sale. Several people attempted to buy the property since then but could never get clear title. One of the buyers hung in there and waited for the home to slip into foreclosure. When it finally came on the MLS as a bank owned property (just a few weeks ago) the buyers were able to close within a matter of days for $1,800,000. The house offered 7,111 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms/5 baths on a 20,700 square foot lot. Broker was Lowell Homes.
Antoine Walker won a championship with the Miami Heat in 2006, his last year in the NBA was in 2008 when he played for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
