Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade will soon have a new place to call home. According to The Wall Street Journal Wade recently paid $10.65 million dollars for an expansive 6 bedroom mansion on La Gorce Island in Miami Beach. The Mediterranean-style house has more than 13,000 sq. ft. of living space, and we've got pictures.
Wade sold his Pinecrest digs last year and has been looking for a home ever since. The home, sold by insurance executive Mel Harris has 6 bedrooms in the main house, 150 feet of bay frontage, a guest house, air-conditioned dog house, pool, cabanas and a tennis court which Wade will turn into a Basketball court, naturally. The home just happens to blocks from where teammate Chris Bosh now resides.
