Tampa's infamous Bilzerian mansion is now on the market for $6 million

The former childhood home of Dan Bilzerian, a professional poker player and so-called "King of Instagram," is now on the market in Tampa's gated Avila community.

Located at  16229 Villarreal De Avila, the home was built in 1992 by his father Paul Bilzerian, a disgraced corporate fraudster who serve 13 months in prison for illegal stock manipulation.

The 28,363-square-foot home sits on 3.4 acres and comes with a total of 10 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms, as well as a wine room, elevator, four fireplaces, a swimming pool with waterfall and slide, and an "athletic wing," featuring a gym, plus indoor basketball and racquetball courts.

For years the home sat on the market and at one point was listed as high as $18 million. In 2016, a trust paid $2.85 million for the home in what the Tampa Bay Times called the area's  "most notorious and expensive foreclosure."

Well, now the home that stock fraud built is currently asking $5,999,900. The listing agents are Eric Dungy and Jon Fincher of Compass Florida, LLC.
