Michael Phelps is the most decorated athlete in Olympic history, and now, the 23-time gold medalist will live in a retirement home befitting of that pedigree. Catherine Reagor of The Arizona Republic brings word that Phelps, fiancee Nicole Johnson, and their son, Boomer, will spend the future in a $2.53 million home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and photos that are publicly available certainly live up to that hefty price tag. Here’s a taste of the Phelps family’s new pad:
For The Win provided a photo montage (via High Res Media) and it paints a fantastic picture of what Phelps and his family will be getting into in the Phoenix suburb. In terms of specifics, the house features more than 6,000 square feet of living space with six-and-a-half bathrooms and bedrooms. The inclusion of a high-end swimming pool is something of a no-brainer given Phelps’ previous profession, but this investment proves that he was able to thoroughly capitalize on his success in the pool to the tune of strong endorsement revenue.
Though Phelps’ choice of retirement location may not be for everyone, Paradise Valley does make sense given his now-current career as a swimming coach at Arizona State. More than that, though, Phelps will be able to live in luxury for what appears to be a very reasonable price, and his new living situation will certainly make any normal human being jealous of the 31-year-old retiree.
