Tyler Perry held an auction yesterday (September 13th) to sell off the contents of his new home. Perry purchased the new home in Johns Creek, located north of Atlanta, that was previously owned by a divorcing couple.
Dean Gardens, the iconic Johns Creek Estate which has been on the market for years, was finally sold to the multi-talented film and TV mogul a few months ago.
According to reports, Perry paid $7.6 million, which is quite the deal considering it was originally listed at $13.9 million. Apparently, he will be tearing down the entire 32,000- square foot mansion sitting on 58 acres of land and building his dream home from scratch. Features of the Dean Gardens Estate include two carriage houses, a wedding chapel, an Asian Tea Garden and an 18 -hole golf course. The mega-estate was originally built in 1992 by technology entrepreneur Larry Dean and his wife Lynda but they were separated before construction was complete.
