Steve Harvey just landed one of Atlanta’s most impressive estates. The nearly 35,000-square-foot French Provincial-style mansion, which was once owned by Tyler Perry, was just sold to the comedian-turned-TV host for $15 million, as first reported by TMZ.
Harvey is the home’s third owner in five years. In 2016, Perry sold it to televangelist David Turner for a record-breaking $17.5 million. Turner shot for the stars two years later, listing it for $25 million before trimming the price to $21 million and eventually selling it to Harvey for a loss at $15 million.
Set on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, the estate spans 17 acres on the north side of the city and seems to take advantage of every single inch. Rolling lawns and formal gardens fill out the amenity-loaded property complete with a 70,000-gallon pool, tennis court, guesthouse, guardhouse and caretaker’s suite in addition to the main mansion.
