Allen Iverson Foreclosure: See the $2.8 Million Atlanta Home Ex-NBA Star Lost
Former NBA star Allen Iverson isn't having a good week. First, a judge skewered him Tuesday for bad parenting skills, and now he's lost his giant Atlanta mansion to foreclosure. Iverson's nearly 10,000-square-foot home on Atlanta's exclusive West Paces Ferry Road had been on the market for $2.5 million, but it was sold at auction Tuesday back to Georgia Primary Bank, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Iverson built the home for $4.5 million in 2009 and lived there with his wife and five kids, but he and his wife recently divorced. A current listing on the house shows the asking price at $2.8 million.
Don't think this is the first time Iverson has lost a home to foreclosure. Back in 2011, when he was shooting for the Denver Nuggets, Iverson also lost his posh $3.875 million Cherry Hills, Colo., mansion to foreclosure after defaulting on the mortgage, according to the Denver Post. Luckily, a buyer had entered into contract to buy the home before Iverson defaulted, the Post said.
Iverson's Atlanta home is quite the luxury estate, one you wouldn't expect to see on the auction block. The listing calls it "one of, if not the finest, private gated estates ever to become available in Atlanta." Iverson had sunk $4.5 million into building it with a custom bar, gourmet kitchen, master suite with "spa-like" bath and luxury accents such as copper gutters.
