LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Muhammad Ali’s lavish Louisville home is up for sale.

“I think the home will sell very quick,” said Ali family spokesperson Bob Gunnell.

The main home and cabana pool house together are 9,300 square feet and sit on a two-acre lot. The mansion in northeast Jefferson County off U.S. 42 on Elmcroft Circle has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a wine cellar, gym and a home theater.

The outside is just as impressive, with an in-ground heated pool and a basketball court with the U of L logo.

Realtor Jennifer Carroll thinks the home will be off the market pretty soon, simply because of the Muhammad Ali name.

“I think that's a big part of it, certainly, and I think that could attract an out of town buyer very easily. That wouldn't surprise me a bit,” Carroll told WDRB News.

So for a whopping $2.2 million, the home could be yours.

Muhammad and his wife Lonnie would typically spend the fall months in the home.

“They liked to be back for The Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards and also it was football season, so they got to make it back for U of L football games,” Gunnell said.

Lonnie and the boxing legend lived in the home for 10 years. They are the second owners.

Gunnell said she and Muhammad had talked about selling the house months before he passed away in June. He said now the house is too big for just one person.

“She and Muhammad had talked, prior to his death, about potentially moving downtown, just exploring it, having conversations about it. Then when Muhammad passed, she felt the time was right,” Gunnell said.

The home was built in 2001. The Ali’s became the second owners when they moved in in 2006.
