Tony Parker lists luxury estate with waterpark


Retired basketball star Tony Parker has placed his luxurious Texas mansion up for sale, with an asking price of $16.5 million.

The sprawling estate, reported by Architectural Digest, encompasses a 1235sq m residence set within a 53-acre property in Boerne, Texas, a location chosen by Parker in 2009 during his marriage to actress Eva Longoria.

Situated in a secure gated community about 40km from San Antonio—where Parker distinguished himself as a pivotal player for the Spurs over a 17-year career—the estate ensures privacy with a guarded entrance, complete with a large gold “P” insignia, and surrounded by high fences.

A lantern-adorned driveway leads visitors to a grand motor court, encircling a tiered fountain at the heart of this Mediterranean-inspired property, which boasts hand-carved stone columns, copper gutters, and traditional clay roof tiles.

The mansion’s interior is equally impressive, featuring a double-height sitting room with expansive windows, a stone fireplace, and a majestic staircase.

The floors are laid with Versailles pattern travertine tiles, and the walls are finished with Venetian plaster, adding to the opulence.

The home includes a formal dining room capable of hosting 16 guests, dual offices with ensuite bathrooms, an all-red cinema room, and a wine cellar.

The primary suite is a highlight, offering private elevator access, a two-car garage (besides the main four-car garage), a barber shop, a meditation room, a trophy display room, and extensive walk-in closets.

The estate totals six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, alongside a four-bedroom guesthouse.

Outdoor features are extravagant, highlighted by a comprehensive waterpark with slides, grottos, and lazy rivers.

Additionally, there are tennis and volleyball courts, a 557sq m gym that includes a basketball court, and an arcade.

The grounds also feature a tortoise habitat, an outdoor kitchen, a Jurassic Park-themed gate, and various gardens, making this property a testament to Parker’s legacy and taste.

The listing is managed by Binkan Cinaroglu of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty, marking a rare opportunity to acquire a property defined by sports excellence and luxurious living.
