*It was just the other day that we learned that Tyler Perry had been declared a billionaire. Now, we’ve learned that’s he’s not only building a super huge mansion/estate, but it will also have a landing strip.
The intrepid folks over at TMZ did their thing and came up with pics and video of the 35,000-square-foot mansion he’s building on 1,200 acres near Atlanta. In the photo above are 2 structures. The much bigger one is no doubt the main house and as you can see, it’s looking like it’s close to being finished.
Here’s more via TMZ:
They’re building an enormous lap pool, as well as a grand entrance to the property. Also, check out the smaller structure that appears to already be completed.
And, Tyler may no longer have a use for a commercial airport, because it looks like he’s creating his own runway!
We’re thinking the smaller structure may actually be a hanger … possibly for his private jet. It’s only fitting, since Forbes acknowledged Tyler now has billionaire status.
As TMZ also notes, the entire estate is tucked away in the woods near the ATL and just far enough away for peace and privacy. Keep in mind that Perry has been designing and building it for several years now. Plans included turning some of the land into an organic farm with horses and other animals.
Oh yeah, if you’re wondering, the Tyler Perry Studios are also nearby
