            Miami Heat Player Shane Battier 

Rumors that Miami Heat player Shane Battier was soon to get the boot from Coach Pat Riley were at an all-time high in June when the small forward/shooter put his Coral Gables house up for sale. But the rumors were quashed when he recently put down $3.22 million on a larger home in the same area. Recent records show Battier having purchased a 1926 colonial-styled home near the Riviera Country Club.

 

The property is located at 4320 Santa Maria Street sporting 6,100 of recently renovated living space with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. The abode also offers hurricane windows, an electric generator, wraparound balconies, and a plenty of backyard party space. Not to mention its proximity to the 15th hole at Riviera.

   

As for his previous house, it is currently up for sale at a price of $1.9 million for a 4,300 square foot, five-bedroom, six-bathroom residence in Bonita Park. Battier purchased the property in 2012 for $1.6 million. Another interesting note, Battier paid cash for his new digs in order to avoid registering a mortgage.
