Score bragging rights by living in "The Greatest's"—aka Muhammad Ali's—Jersey house

Share this Article

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.
