tyler perry

You missed your chance to live like Tyler Perry and the other 1% in America.

The multimillionaire media mogul finally sold his Buckhead mansion for a record $17.5 million, making real estate history in the process.

The magnificent 35,000 square-foot palace was touted by the listing agent as "perhaps the most compelling private residence to ever be offered to market in the history of Atlanta."

The spectacular property boasts 17 manicured acres, a larger-than-Olympic-size swimming pool, an IMAX theater, a tennis court atop a parking deck, and a bedroom with a full-sized tub and massage table adjacent to the 4 poster canopy bed!

The home is not without a history of problems. Five years ago, 3 bungling home invaders broke into the mansion -- while Perry was at home in bed. They made it inside Perry's opulent two-story foyer before one of them -- 18-year-old Chloe Ware -- was tackled to the floor by his "presidential-level security" guards. The other two burglars got away empty-handed.

Maybe that's why Perry listed his sprawling property for the original asking price of $25 million?

The house, on the 4100 block of Paces Ferry Rd, is located near the prestigious and absurdly expensive Lovett School for the spawn of the filthy rich.

    Is he going to go live by Oprah now?

  • iWasteTime

    Look Butter! You made it hun!

    Very nice house from what I see. Looks like a castle. If only my salary had one extra 0.

  • MsVAllDay

    The question I have is who purchased the house?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Crai and Kim loyal readers, what's Butter?!?

  • Buttercup

    She didn't give me shoutout. I ain't made it yet :crying1:

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I pass it everyday. It's amazing

  • Buttercup

    I was mistaken. He bought the house for $7.6M. It was once priced at $40M.

    ...was tackled to the floor by his “presidential-level security” guards...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    President Obama probably WISHES they were on his security detail...These fools CAN'T or CHOOSE to NOT even tackle in a open field--LITERALLY.

  • Buttercup

    Nope. Douglas County which is near Six Flags over GA.

  • Blue

    lol @ at that pic

  • Buttercup

    I'on know. It was a cash only sale though.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I bet that commission check is nice, real nice (Bernie Mac voice)

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A shout out for what?

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    You italicized full size tub like its something unique.

  • Buttercup

    The realtor who sold it deals with high-end real estate. Currently, his least expensive listing is 800K. That commission check was probably around a half mill.

  • AnonymousRose

    I lived near him I use to take heards ferry rd, from hammonds dr to get home, loved his house...well it was a lot of nice homes over there.."gated" yt folks don't think you belong over there.....smh

  • harley_quinn2.0

    That's what I'm thinking.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    That's where he moved?? Interesting. I'm surprised he didn't go further north. Or at least Alpharetta or John's Creek.

  • Buttercup

    The article I read on AJC said that he was going to build his home on a 1K acre estate. You know the price of land down there is far less expensive than Alpharetta.

  • Finding Forever…

    ...while Perry was in bed...
    ~~~~~~
    Who was the bedmate? Just Woonnnderin'...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ah, okay. Good point. And good for him for going where he can get the most for his money, not just where it's trendy to live.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    My salary need an extra 000.. Lol!!!

  • Buttercup

    Exactly!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I posted that before I did the math. One 0 won't do it for me either!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I bet! If the picture is this beautiful... I can imagine how amazing the house looks in person!!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Probably the baby maker that is on his payroll

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I need to see pictures of that tub... it must be nnniiiccceee!!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I remember this house in Diary of a Mad Black Women. Is the tub that the handicap husband got rolled into the "full size tub" you speak of Auntie?!!

  • Di Ana

    Who the hell bought that???

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    THAT'S A LONG ARSE WALK FROM THE PARKING GARAGE TO THE HOUSE...

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Probably Donald Trump... He probably asked for his vote/endorsement in return

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!! I said the SAME THING!!! He must have a hired person that valet people's cars for them.

  • LeBrick James

    Imagine the cost of just the upkeep and maintenance on a house like that.
    Not to mention the property taxes. wow.

  • Sucker Free

    Ok...i thought he built this one...wonder why he didnt stay

  • i troll it like i see it

    This place is so damn gaudy!!!

  • Jay

    Let me go and win this power ball

  • Monday

    Looks like what I saw on The Boondocks

    No wife nor kids live there.. Just a whooole lof of his light skin without shirts sweating n glissening all over his mansion...

    ???

    Did they ever show who break in??

  • Empress

    Yep, Could have been mine, to my surprise I was out bid!

  • LeBrick James

    They outbid me for sure. I didnt want to pay more than $16 million.

  • Empress

    Very Beautiful. I would want to vacation but not live day to day. I watch too much Dateline at night, I would be scared there's some man might be living in the West wing of the house without my knowledge. If I get tired walking to from one side of my house to the other it's too big for me. Maybe I would feel different if I had those coins and lifestyle, I guess those rooms could be full of his family/friends(but who wants that everyday?) LOL

  • LeBrick James

    That's the thing about real estate sales. You can hit a bunch of home runs, and live lovely... or you can strike out over and over and find yourself broke and looking for a new job soon.
    Most of the people I know who got their real estate license ended up in that second category.

  • Empress

    Damn! I passed my real estate exam too. I just took it to encourage a friend. I must be crazy. I better get on out there. LOL

  • Buttercup

    It was listed in June.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    They both need better detail if you ask me.

  • Jozie723

    Actually the commission is about 8% and this team brokered both sides of the deal.... for a total of $1,400,000 in commission. yeeeeaaahhh and if it was the minimum of 6% then the commission was $1,050,000. This is why I LOVE real estate!

  • Jozie723

    It's hard work... and no one to tell you to get up and do it! Those who can motivate themselves can win... others do enough to survive. Real estate is work 24/7 until you build your customer base. So I'm working HARD!

  • Jozie723

    yeeeeeees you have to have looooonnngggg money to keep it up.

  • Jozie723

    yeeeeeees you have to have looooonnngggg money to keep it up.

  • Buttercup

    I didn't know he brokered both sides. Talk about a win!

  • Starsky Willows

    Tooo much...

  • Sheyonce

    lol

  • Sheyonce

    Ditto. Maybe next time :-/

  • TheWildChild

    ? is this Luther Vandross's old crib?

  • TheWildChild

    ? is this Luther Vandross's old crib?

  • iWasteTime

    My bad love, I didn't read :(

  • That’s Interesting

    Must be nice.

  • homieloverfriend

    He actually built this house from the ground up to his specification....massive it is.

  • Sexy CJ

    ..................

  • Crazy tee

    The broker pulled in almost a million dollars for selling the home...even splitting with other agents still brings home a pretty penny...

  • BaybeK8s

    Were any of the realtors from "Selling it in the ATL" in on this deal? Did the Nigerian investor's wife finally find a home that met their standards? More details please. Lol

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That home is ridiculous. I love it. It's valued a little over $16M. I knew he would never get $25M for it, but even still, he walks away with a million dollar+ profit.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    lol. Tyler built it from the ground up.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, just like the Evander Holyfield estate Rick Ross bought (100+acres), I know you're spendinging 100k a month average to maintain this estate. You know some foreign money bought this though.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nah, that was his Fairburn, GA mansion. I know you're thinking that though because of those dramatic long stairs in the front.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    You're referring to Dean Gardens, the Alpharetta, GA estate. I'm a real estate fanatic and love mansions like this one and Dean Gardens.

  • TheWildChild

    But I recall reading somewhere that he owned LV's old house and used it as a prop for most of his movies..?

  • Kilroy

    Youte right!

  • stanhope

    Doll Black folks don't do business with Black folks anymore. Ms Perry doubtless gave the listing to a white buckhead broker. Just like her girlfriend Oprah did in Chicago.

  • darealwifey

    Wait...hol' up! He had an *IMAX* theater in his house??? You betta gone head on, Tyler!!!

  • Sincerity7

    All that house and no wife/husband and kids?? A waste in my opinion.

  • wshh administration

    No shemar Moore's garage

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Yep!!! Lol...
