18 May Tour: Tyler Perry Sets ATL Record With Sale of This Mega Mansion
Comic actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry has sold his sprawling riverfront estate in the Paces neighborhood of Atlanta for a record $17.5 million.
The 34,688-square-foot behemoth of a house came to market last year for $25 million and closed sale in late April, property records show. The high-dollar transaction represents the most ever paid for a residential home in Atlanta, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
Set behind two gated entrances on 17 acres, the estate includes a French Provincial-style mansion, an over-the-top swimming pool and waterfall and a tennis court. Elsewhere on the grounds are a hobby house, a guard house and a caretaker suite for a total of seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and five half-baths.
Among features of note is a gym, a Roman-style bathhouse/spa, an 18-seat theater and an underground ballroom, complete with a catering kitchen. Grand formal areas with hand-painted and gilded details include a two-story living room, a formal dining room and a wood-paneled office.
A palatial master suite has a terrace balcony that overlooks the grounds
Formal and informal gardens, fountains, lawns and statuary fill the wooded and gated setting.
Perry bought the property for $9 million, records show.
