Inside Muhammad Ali's Former Los Angeles Estate
The nine-bedroom Los Angeles mansion the late Muhammad Ali called home has just hit the market for $17 million. Situated on six acres in a gated community called Fremont Place, the property was built in 1916. It was designed by renowned architect John C. Austin, who was responsible for iconic Los Angeles edifices such as the Griffith Observatory and the Shrine Auditorium.
The boxing legend, who died in 2016 at the age of 74, purchased the sprawling home in 1979 and resided there with his third wife, Veronica Porché Ali, and their two children until they parted ways in 1986.
The impressive estate boasts a grand entry hall, a spacious living room, a den with a wet bar, and a 1,016-square-foot guest house. Scroll down for a look at how the "Greatest of All Time" lived.
Along with an expansive patio, the stunning landscaped grounds feature a grassy yard and a number of fountains.
The property was built in 1916 by Martin Henry Mosier, who set out to create “one of the beautiful residences in the fashionable Wilshire district.”
