Former Miami Heat center Alonzo Mourning and his wife Tracey just closed on a house in central Pinecrest. For privacy reasons I will not disclose the address. Built by Portoundo Perroti the home has 6 bedrooms 8.5 baths with 11,533 sq.ft. Some of the exquisite features include chef’s kitchen, wood paneled library, wine cellar, full bar, elevator, onyx & jade baths, covered porches and stunning pool. The home was listed for $5,300,000 and Alonzo paid $4,500,000. The listing and selling agent was Engel & Voelkers Miami/Brickell. Here are some pictures of the home.
