Four years after NBA alum Theo Ratliff took a shot at selling his luxurious Atlanta mansion, he’s put the baller estate back on the market for $4,489,000.
The NBA All-Star purchased the property in 2002, during his time playing with the Atlanta Hawks, and paid $4,314,900 for the place.
The center first looked to pass the place to a new owner in 2016, when he listed the high-end home for $5.2 million. But with no buyers stepping up, the residence has returned to the market at a more modest price.
Taking a peep at the listing photos suggests that the palatial mansion hasn’t changed in four years. Which is to say: Neutral, it’s not.
Behind a private gate and a long, winding driveway, the massive mansion opens to a two-story foyer with a curved staircase, which leads to the formal dining and living rooms.
The main level of the 14,118-square-foot space features a gourmet, eat-in kitchen, as well as a keeping room with a vaulted fireplace. A two-story “gentleman’s study,” as the listing description calls it, leads to a library from a spiral staircase.
The private owner’s suite in this palatial six-bedroom spread comes with a spalike bath and dual closets. The grounds also include a separate guesthouse with a kitchen, bedroom, bath, and game room.
Eye-popping features include a Moroccan-themed sitting room, an Egyptian-themed home theater, and a music room covered in multiple animal prints. Other luxe amenities include an exercise room with steam and sauna, a custom bar, wine cellar, and an elevator.
Outside, an owner can entertain guests under a covered loggia with an outdoor fireplace. There’s also a heated saltwater pool, plus a spa with waterfall. We’re pretty sure the retired hooper displayed some game on his own lighted basketball court.
Now 46, Ratliff played for 16 seasons with nine teams, ending his playing career with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2011. The University of Wyoming graduate has been involved in various business ventures, and owns the Rome Gladiators, a local basketball team.
