David Robinson knows how to accessorize a house.

The San Antonio Spurs picked the 7'1" center with the first pick in the 1987 NBA draft. He went on to play 14 seasons with the organization before being elected into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.

Now The Admiral is looking for a change of scenery. Robinson has put his mansion up for sale for $3.695 million, according to Realtor.com's Neal J. Leitereg. Look at the details of the house:

While not quite as large as his previous home, a 12,500-square-foot custom manse, his latest property certainly isn’t lacking in size. Sited on two acres in Shavano Park, The Admiral’s Mediterranean-style home weighs in comfortably at 8,175 square feet of living space and has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three fireplaces.


Head to the rear of Robinson’s home and the grounds explode into a combination of resort-like leisure space and sportsman’s oasis. An inviting pool and spa with water features, swim jets and other bells and whistles sits adjacent to a long, covered patio; while a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, tennis court and San Antonio Spurs-stamped basketball court round out the paradise setting.

A Spurs basketball court? Awesome.

When you play for only one team during a stellar career, it's easy to design luxuries.
