Tyler Perry Isn't Budging from $25 Million Asking Price

New, 10 comments

Nine months later, this Chattahoochee chateau is sitting tight. Will it ever sell?

Last time we checked in with Chez Madea, this unconscionably extravagant, 35,000-square-foot French Provincial palace cost $25 million. That was nine months ago, and Terry Perry's grand Buckhead pad on the banks of the Chattahoochee — touted by the listing agent as "perhaps the most compelling private residence to ever be offered to market in the history of Atlanta" — doesn't cost a dime less than $25 million now.

It would appear Perry is in no hurry to offload these 17 manicured acres, with a hobby house that's probably worth $1 million, his pool that rivals the one Evander Holyfield lost to foreclosure (the swim-up bar is money), his enormous screening room, and that legitimate parking deck topped by a lighted tennis court. And good news for paranoid moguls: The entire complex is safeguarded by "presidential-level security," per the listing.

But it's all catered to very specific tastes, which makes you wonder who might assume a mortgage like this in Atlanta. Barring a significant price reduction, you can't help wonder if this place will ever sell.
