The 81-acre farm near Berrien Springs, MI, that served as Muhammad Ali’s retreat and training site is for sale. The farm, complete with a boxing ring, is offered by his widow for $2,895,037.
Ali bought the farm in 1975, nearly 10 years before he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The farm, located near the St. James River, is where he spent his summers and a portion of his retirement until the Parkinson’s became more advanced.
Located in southwestern Michigan, near Indiana, Ali’s farm is enclosed on three sides by the river, ensuring privacy from neighbors and onlookers. Structures on the property include the main house, carriage house, pool, gym, garages, barns and office epicenter. The elaborate gym has the boxing ring in the center, exercise equipment, a steam room, baths, massage room, laundry and spa.
A few steps outside the gym’s French doors is a full-size basketball court. Next door to the gym is the office epicenter with his private office, conference area, private bath, mail room, vault, kitchen, loading dock and several other offices and a basement. There are two separate climate-controlled garages, each accommodating over five cars, RVs and space for equipment. The two houses, main house and carriage house for guests, are on either side of the pool terrace, which includes a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, bath house, sound system and pergola. The main house has four bedrooms, living and family rooms and kitchen with large pantry and a three-car, climate-controlled garage. The carriage guest house also has a sun room and deck overlooking the pond and fountain by the river.
