Tyler Perry's Former Georgia Mansion is Now For Sale

Tyler Perry's former Georgia mansion is now for sale for $25 million.

Tyler Perry is one of the most powerful filmmakers in Atlanta, Georgia. He has gone from being homeless to living in some of the biggest homes in Georgia. Now, his former Buckhead mansion is for sale. According to reports, Entrepreneur and evangelist David Turner placed his Buckhead mansion up for sale at $25 million just two years after buying it from Tyler Perry. Turner purchased the home from Perry for $17.5 million in 2016, according to reports, which interviewed him about the home. The home sits on 17 acres and is nearly 35,000 square feet. Its sale in 2016 is believed to be the most expensive home sold in Atlanta history. But it begs the question, why would Turner choose to sell his home after buying it only a few years ago? Currently, it is unknown. He is pricing it at the same price that Perry attempted to sell it in 2016. Tyler Perry ultimately had to sell it at a $7.5 million discount to get the sale finally done. The property was once owned by long-time segregationist Moreton Rollston, who owned an Atlanta motel that refused to integrate. Perry was apparently proud of this. “To have this property was such poetic justice," Perry told New York magazine in 2016. The mansion has seven bedrooms, an underground ballroom, a parking deck, a "hobby house," an infinity edge swimming pool with bar, a lighted tennis court and a remote control airplane runway. Perry bought the home in 2007 for $9 million and spent millions renovating the home. At the home, Tyler Perry has hosted celebrities and politicians including Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama. Perry now lives in Douglasville, where he owns more than 1,000 acres, while also owning homes in other cities including Los Angeles and New York. Related: What do you think?
