Tyler Perry is one of the guests of Joel Osteen’s virtual Easter Sunday service, which is being live-streamed due to the coronavirus pandemic. All guests are performing remotely for a virtual service.
Other guests on the special include Kanye West and Mariah Carey, who will deliver messages of love and support from the comfort of their own homes. Sources tell TMZ that Mariah Carey will be part of a special tribute to medical professionals and first responders.
Perry’s current home, which he built from scratch, has been kept mostly private. His previous home in Atlanta, however, was listed for sale, giving people an inside look on how the film star and producer lived.
Read on to learn more about Perry’s current and former homes.
Perry’s Former Atlanta Mansion Was Listed For Sale in 2019
Prior to listing his multi-million Atlanta mansion for sale, Perry secured a 1,000-acre plot of land in suburban Atlanta where he planned to build his new masterpiece.
The home was listed for $25 million and sold to an out-of-town buyer for $17.5 million. It was over 34,000 square feet and featured seven bedrooms, fourteen bathrooms, a two-story library, an infinity-edge swimming pool, a tennis court, a two-story parking garage, a gym, a theatre and an underground ballroom with a catering kitchen.
Outside the house, there are formal and informal gardens, a hobby house, an entire estate generator, a caretaker’s suite and a presidential-level security system that includes two gated entrances.
Because it has been listed for sale, plenty of photos of the interior and exterior of the mansion can be seen online. Perry lived in the mansion until 2016.
He Is Building An Estate in Suburban Atlanta
According to Daily Motion, Perry is still working on the custom mega-estate that is located outside of Atlanta, but he is currently staying in the Atlanta area. Perry also owns his own studio lot dubbed Tyler Perry Studios. Reportedly, his newest estate will be near the studios.
The custom home will be on 1,200 acres, according to TMZ. They also reported that the home itself will be over 35,000 square feet.
Perry has plans to use some of the property as an organic farm in order to build an appreciation for land and nature in his son. He’s said he will have horses on the farm.
According to an Instagram post from Perry last year, the home already features wildlife. He shared a picture of an animal on his property, writing “When I was building this house I thought this will be a great place for me to sit out in my backyard and write, read, and nap. Auhhhhhh!!! This big guy made me rethink all of that. You can have it. You were here first. I’ll read, write, and nap inside. Until you hibernate.”
