Boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s home in Fremont Place is back on the market for $16,995,000.  The 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom home is over 10,000 square feet and sited in a large corner lot in Fremont Place. It is one of the most historic homes in Fremont Place, the small gated neighborhood of  73 homes, developed in the early 1900s along the western extension of Wilshire Blvd. near Rossmore Avenue.

The current owners, thoughtful stewards of the property they purchased in 2006,  have hosted numerous civic and philanthropic events with prominent national and local leaders over their years in residence. They listed the home in 2019 for the same price but took it off the market during the pandemic.

The historic mansion was built in 1915 for Martin Henry Mosier, and designed by architect John C. Austin, the renowned architect of the Griffith Observatory, and Los Angeles City Hall.

According to the listing, the home is “set on a flat 1.6 acre corner lot with a commanding presence and an abundance of amenities. Highlights include a grand entry hall, a formal dining room, a living room with bay windows, a den with a wet bar and a light filled circular sun room with a glass roof. Dramatic chandeliers and fireplaces appoint living areas that are detailed with an abundance of architectural details. The primary suite opens to a column-lined deck that overlooks the gardens. In addition to 7 bedrooms there are 2 offices, one with a series of oversized stained glass windows from Louis Comfort Tiffany. The magical interiors are rivaled by the estate grounds with its large guest house, hidden gardens, sweeping lawns, stone terraces and a lush pool area.”

Locally, the home is most well known to neighbors as the former mansion of Muhammad Ali, who lived there from there from 1979 to 1986.  We wrote about how Ali was remembered by his Fremont Place neighbors when he passed away in 2016.
