Muhammad Ali’s LA mansion hits the market

The former Los Angeles mansion of boxing legend Muhammad Ali is up for auction, boasting a rich tapestry of history and luxury.

Known as the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time, Ali’s Italian Renaissance style home mirrors his grandeur.

Nestled in the exclusive Fremont Place of Hancock Park, this 975sq m property has previously housed celebrities like Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and even former President Barack Obama, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

Built in 1916 by renowned architect John C. Austin, who also designed the Griffith Observatory and LA’s City Hall, the mansion showcases an array of exquisite features.

Among them, a stained glass piece personally designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, antique fireplaces, French Empire chandeliers, and imported Italian marble, setting the tone of old-world elegance.

The estate was in Ali’s possession from 1979 to 1984, during which it became a venue for numerous celebrity gatherings.

The mansion is designed with an opulent lifestyle in mind.

The ground floor features a grand entry hall leading into various rooms ideal for hosting, including a sunroom with a glass roof, a large salon, an ornate formal dining room, a living room with oversized bay windows, and a den equipped with a wet bar.

The upper floor houses several bedrooms and offices, with the primary suite featuring its own fireplace and opening onto a columned deck overlooking the lush gardens.

The outdoor space is equally impressive with two manicured gardens, a swimming pool, stone fountains, and a pergola terrace, all spread across a 1.5-acre corner lot.

Additionally, there is a 92sq m guesthouse on the premises, enhancing the property’s appeal.

Listed previously for US$13.5 million, the mansion will now be sold at an auction with a reserve price.

Prospective buyers have until May 15th to place their bids.
