The 'Greatest's' Real Estate
Legendary boxer and three-time world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali passed away this weekend after being hospitalized due to a respiratory illness. Bisnow is paying tribute to the champ the only way we know how—here's a glimpse into the prolific fighter's real estate.
Ali's estate in Cherry Hill, NJ, has been on the market for a few years, with an asking price of $750k. The Tuscan-style home was built in 1965, just a year after Ali took down Sonny Liston for his first world heavyweight title.
The property is nestled on a forested 1.5-acre plot and has a gated entrance. The outdoor area includes a heated pool, two multi-sport courts, a gazebo, a deck and a playground.
The GOAT's grand chef's kitchen boasts an island covered by a huge slab of jaguar granite.
Here's a shot of the ground-floor view of the champ's landscaped courtyard and patio area. The courtyard is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows bathing the first floor in light.
The lower floor has a giant sunroom, along with a hot tub, a mirror-clad chimney, and a 45-foot bar—and leads to the outdoor pool.
Thousands of fans flocked to Muhammad Ali's childhood home in Louisville, KY, at 3302 Grand Ave, upon his death this weekend, paying tribute to the elite boxer. The one-story home with a sagging front porch went on sale for $50k in 2012, despite being assessed at $23k.
The boxing great also inspired the Philippines' first-ever mall. Ali fought famed boxer Joe Frazier in the Philippines in October 1975 in the Philippines’ Araneta Coliseum—in a fight known as the "Thrilla In Manila."
Following the fight, the Araneta Group constructed the Ali Mall, which Muhammad Ali graced the opening of in 1976.
