It boasts seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms and the three-storey property is a whopping 22,000 square feet. The luxury home has its own gym, spa, sauna, home theater and wine storage and tasting room, as well as a 12-car garage complete with its own turntable.

Gabrielle and Dwyane first met in 2007 and tied the knot in 2014.
