The widow of Muhammad Ali has relisted the Louisville, Kentucky, home she shared with the boxing icon for $1.95 million.
The two-story brick mansion, which comes with a backyard basketball court, pool cabana and two-tiered home theater, came back on the market April 27 with an 11% price cut.
The famed boxer’s widow, Yolanda Williams Ali, in her early 60’s, first listed the five-bedroom house a few months after his death in June 2016. He died from septic shock in Scottsdale, Arizona, at the age of 74 following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
Their hillside, two-acre property sits among the upmarket rolling green neighborhoods northeast of the city.
A Louisville-native, Ali was a three-time heavyweight boxing champion also known for his divisive political stances, including his refusal to be drafted during the Vietnam War and his opposition to integration during the Civil Rights Movement.
His last residence in his hometown was this 9,300-square-foot neoclassical-style house.
The home has oversized formal living spaces and amenities, including a windowed gym overlooking an informal living space, a billiards room, wine cellar and separate pool cabana, according to the listing with Jennifer Carroll of Semonin Realtors, who did not return a request for comment.
The family purchased the home for $1.875 million in 2010 through a limited liability company, according to property records.
They then hired Scottsdale-area interior designer Andrew Hirschman to decorate. His work includes hand-forged glass lighting, woven veneer wall coverings and high-end bath fixtures from local artisans, according to the listing.
The more informal lower level of the house has a sunken family room and a second kitchen with a wet bar. A back patio off the back of the house overlooks the two-acre grounds.
The Courier Journal first reported the relisting.
