Want to live in Muhammad Ali‘s former Cherry Hill house? In the wake of boxing great Ali’s death last Friday at age 74, there’s speculation that the 10,000 square foot, five bedroom, four bath home, which was built in 1965, may go on the market again for rent or sale, as it was in December 2015.

Lucy Simone of Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach Realtors in Cherry Hill told realtor.com, “It is not the showplace it was when Muhammad Ali owned it.” However, “for the people in Cherry Hill, it will always be Muhammad Ali’s home.” Still, the home and its 1.5 acre lot remains an impressive property, which includes a tennis court, volleyball/basketball/shuffleboard court, gazebo, deck, and full sized playground.

The house was last sold in March 2014 for $690,000, according to data from realtor.com.

Ali, a three-time World Heavyweight Champion and Olympic gold medal winner, lived in the house from 1971 to 1974, choosing it in order to be close to his training camp in Philadelphia.
