Legendary boxer’s Muhammad Ali’s Michigan compound arrived on the market earlier this month for $2.9 million.
The suburban estate in Berrien Springs, 90 miles from Chicago, encompasses some 81 acres, where Ali lived and trained before his passing in 2016 at the age of 74.
The property, listed with Tim Mitchell of Cressy & Everett Real Estate, features a 3,960-square-foot, Cape Cod-style main home with four bedrooms, a guest house with a sun room and a pool, which all bear a slate of upgrades and modifications Ali initiated over the years.
Aside from overhauling the pool, the boxer built a sprawling fitness center with a steam room, a hot tub, a massage room and, of course, a boxing ring that anchors all the amenities. Close by is Ali’s office, equipped with conference quarters and a private bath. Ali also transformed part of the landscape into a waterfall rock garden.
With multiple barns and outposts throughout and the capacity to accommodate up to 500 guests, the property boasts a history of famous owners. It previously belonged to gangster Louis “Little New York” Campagna, who worked as Al Capone’s bodyguard.
Ali’s Michigan home is not the sole estate from his portfolio to seek buyers. In late April, his wife Yolanda “Lonnie” Ali relisted the couple’s Louisville, Kentucky residence for $1.95 million, an 11 percent cut from its original asking price.
