Explore the Interior of Muhammad Ali’s $17 Million Hancock Park Mansion

Hancock Park in Los Angeles is a special neighborhood known for its mix of history and luxury. It was developed more than 100 years ago and is close to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. One notable place in Hancock Park is 55 Fremont Place, a gated community with about 70 homes, many with interesting histories.

Muhammad Ali, the boxing legend, owned a house at 55 Fremont Place, which is now on the market for just under $17 million. Ali bought the seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion in 1979 and lived there with his family. The house was built in 1916 and sits on a 1.5-acre corner lot, considered one of the best locations in Hancock Park.

The mansion, designed by renowned architect John C. Austin, has a European-style facade and unique features across its three floors. One standout is a large stained glass window by Louis Comfort Tiffany, a famous glass-maker. The house is filled with historic elements like original fireplaces, crystal chandeliers, and wood paneling, making it quite special.

The property is divided into public and private areas. The lower level, with a grand foyer, salon, conservatory, living room, and dining room, is perfect for entertaining. Notable guests like former President Barack Obama visited the home. The upper level has bedrooms, offices, and a fully equipped bar. The property also includes a large swimming pool, gardens, patios with fountains, and a guest house.

The current owners, Michael Lawson and Mattie McFadden-Lawson, bought the property in 2001 for $2.5 million. Now, with their children grown, they’re selling the house. If it sells at the asking price, it will be one of the highest-priced sales in Hancock Park. The neighborhood has become popular among Hollywood elite, including Shonda Rhimes, Mindy Kaling, Ozzy Osbourne, Nate Berkus, and Jeremiah Brent.

According to real estate agent Gary Gold, Hancock Park has regained popularity in the last two decades, with exceptional houses attracting exceptional buyers.
