It has 109 rooms, a 135-seat theater, a dining hall that can hold 100 and 21 bathrooms. The massive mansion that used to belong to Evander Holyfield is being auctioned off by JPMorgan with offers being accepted through today.
The bid was as of press time was $6,500,000 – click here for updated price.

That’s just slightly less than the $7.5 million that JPMorgan paid for the 48,000 sq. ft. palace. UPDATE: the house sold for $7,000,000.

Most of you know the story by now: Evander has 12 kids, makes his fortune and wants a place where the kids can spread out a little bit. This place accomplished that goal, but Evander went broke and lost his dream home. He was said to have spent $16,000 on Christmas decorations for the place.

According to the realtor:

Lots of entertainment spaces in the home make it perfect for the active lifestyle. The home includes an indoor bowling alley; handball court; lap pool and movie theater–supplementing outdoor activities like horseback riding; baseball; tennis and swimming. The outdoor pool is one of the largest in the United States at approximately 365000 gallons. The property offers additional structures; including an approximate 4000 SF brick guest home; a boxing gym and recording studio; two farm equipment and industrial storage buildings; and a 7 Stall Barn with office and 2 tack rooms.

Sounds perfect for the new BC HQ.
