Got a spare $23.7 million lying around? You could buy Muhammad Ali’s former mansion.

The Italian Renaissance home comes with nine bedrooms and an impressive history.

The LA residence sits on 1.5 acres of land and has played host to guests including Barack Obama, Clint Eastwood and Sylvester Stallone.

Over 100 years’ old, the current owners bought it for $US2.5 million ($AU 3.49 million) in 2001, according to the Wall Street Journal, and they listed it for sale on 17 January, which would have been Ali’s 77th birthday.

Ali bought the home in 1979, around the time the famous heavyweight retired from boxing and he and his wife lived there with their two children until they separated in 1986.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the house was decorated to look like a museum.

When it was first built, the owner Martin Henry Mosier said his vision was to create “one of the beautiful residences in the fashionable Wilshire district”. He enlisted architect John C. Austin, who was also known for his involvement in the Griffith Park Observatory, to help him achieve this goal.
