Denver Nuggets guard and NBA star Allen Iverson has listed his five-bedroom, Chateau-style mansion in Villanova, Pa. for $6,300,000.
Iverson, 32, has listed the home at 800 Chateau Lane in Villanova, which is the basketball star's second home in the Philadelphia area.
Iverson had purchased his first home, at 1432 Monk Road in Gladwyne, Pa., in 2000 for $2,400,000 and sold it in April 2006 for $2,850,000, according to public records. Iverson famously kicked his wife Tawanna out of the Monk Road house in 2002 during a fight, and later went looking for his wife at his cousin's apartment. Iverson subsequently was arrested on charges related to the incident--charges that later were dropped. Back in June, we wrote about Iverson's Monk Road house, while we were writing about director M. Night Shyamalan's $7,999,000 listing of his seven-bedroom, 12,970-square-foot mansion at 1500 Monk Road, which is literally next door to Iverson's old house.
In Villanova, Iverson paid exactly $5,000,000 in January 2003 for the Chateau Lane house, according to public records. Features in the mansion include seven baths, two half baths, five fireplaces and four full levels, according to public records and listing information. The house's size is a matter of debate. Public records state that the house measures 9,782 square feet, while listing information states that the house is a whopping 14,000 square feet. Other features include floor-to-ceiling Palladian windows in the foyer and great room, custom rail work, moldings, French doors, a 12-person movie theater, a billiard room, a guest suite with a living room, bedroom and kitchenette, a bar/lounge with a 200-plus-bottle wine cooler, and a master suite with crystal chandeliers and sconces, his-and-hers marble baths and a large closet that can accommodate 500 pairs of shoes, according to listing information. Outside are a pool house, a stream, a hot tub and 'cascading waterfalls,' according to listing information.
Iverson's Villanova mansion sits on 3.5 acres, according to public records. It's just down the road a half-mile or so from the 10,900-square-foot house on 4.33 acres on Valley Road that Iverson's old teammate, NBA star Dikembe Mutombo, purchased in 2001 for $2,800,000, according to public records.

Last year, Iverson reportedly paid $2.1 million to purchase a recently built home in a subdivision in Alpharetta, Ga., outside Atlanta. He also occupies a condo while he's in Denver.
