Believe it or not, you can live like one of the greatest heavyweight boxers in history, for $750,000. Philadelphia magazine reports that Muhammad Ali's former Cherry Hill, New Jersey home is currently for sale. (It's listed with the Mauz Dare group at Keller Williams.)
The five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath, Tuscan-style house was built in 1965, and stands on one-and-a-half acres.
The entire home is built around a garden atrium (see photo above).
And the house seems to have been built for parties. The (massive) kitchen has a SubZero refrigerator, double oven, steamer, grill, fryer, wine cooler, and Jaguar granite extra-long countertop.
Apparently the glass chandelier in the dining room, above, remains from the days of Ali.
The living room has a stone accent wall with a wood-burning fireplace.
Wondering what we meant when we said the house is built for parties? There's a hot tub sunroom that overlooks the backyard and a surrounding stream. The lower level is a large, open space with a 45-foot bar with seating for over a dozen and a catering kitchen. (You could probably place a boxing ring in there in tribute to the boxing champ who used to live there.)
A 40-foot heated in-ground pool, tennis court, volleyball/basketball/shuffleboard court, gazebo, deck, and full sized playground with "vintage" play-equipment comprise the impressive outdoor space.
Other perks: Custom audio and TV surround sound in the family room, heated marble flooring, a new intercom system connected to the remote control front gate and security system. There's also a separate two-car detached garage for storage/work space and a three-car attached garage with an in-law suite above it.
It could all use a bit of updating, sure, but talk about bragging rights.
