Writer, producer, friend of Oprah rich man Tyler Perry just bought a small mall to live in. Or at least it resembles one. And at 17,000+ square feet and with a wall of glass to greet you, the place could easily pass for one.
Perry splashed out $14.5 million for the 4.2 acre property that has multiple wings, a glass and steel amalgamation of interlocking square pavilions topped by dramatic pyramid-shaped skylights, has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in 17,245-square-feet of voluminous, sun filled space. The house offers what listing details call “both grand and intimate spaces” with floor-to-ceiling windows and a capacious, atrium-like entry with overlapping marble stepping stones under soaring vaulted ceilings crisscrossed by a series of floating, open-tread staircases.
