The huge 17-acre estate in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, Georgia, which was for several years the home of the actor, director and playwright Tyler perry now belongs to another big name in comedy: talk show host and writer Steve Harvey. TMZ reports that Harvey bought the sprawling and elaborate mansion for $ 15 million.
Harvey did not, however, buy the mansion from Perry. After buying it in 2007 for a reported amount of $ 9 million and making major renovations to the property, Perry sold it in 2016 for $ 17.5 million. This means that Harvey got a good deal locally and that the 2016 buyer, evangelist David Turner, sold it for a loss of $ 2.5 million.
Nonetheless, it is a huge, lavish estate with nearly 35,000 square feet of living space, seven bedrooms, and amenities like an underground ballroom, a home gym, a home theater, a indoor resistance pool as well as an infinity pool and an outdoor bar, tennis court and wine cellar. Here is how it was described in its official list:
“Perhaps the most convincing private residence ever offered on the market in Atlanta’s history. Located on seventeen private and immaculate park-like acres with a prominent façade on the Chattahoochee River. Tennis court, hall fully equipped gym, spa, theater, hobby house, underground ballroom with catering kitchen, formal and informal gardens, entire domain generator, caretaker’s house, caretaker suite Presidential level security system. secure residential buildings. “
Another fairly unusual feature that, for whatever reason, the list failed to mention, but which hopefully will continue to be used as the new owners of the property move in is an airplane runway – but one for remotely controlled airplanes.
