Celebrity Property Tax Assessment: Ron Seikaly

Looking for a house with high ceilings? I'll bet this one has 'em. Why would I bet? Its recent purchaser is Ron Seikaly. Ron is 6 feet 11 inches tall and was the first-ever draft pick of the NBA Miami Heat.

Ron was a great center for the Heat and still loves Miami. I saw him at a party recently in Miami Beach. After his tenure with the Heat, Ron played for a couple of other NBA teams and even did a stint in Spain's professional basketball league.

Nowadays, Ron's into professional volleyball. He's still a world-class athlete.

In 2002, Ron bought a waterfront lot on North Bay Road in Miami Beach, nearly 27,000 square feet, well over half an acre. He built his dream home there, over 9,000 square feet of high-ceilinged luxury, completing construction and moving in in 2005.
