How many times have you donned sneakers and sweatbands and run the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art so you can feel as mighty as Rocky Balboa?
Imagine that feeling everyday when you come home from work.
Arguably the mightiest of Rocky’s rivals was Apollo Creed and his Philadelphia mansion featured in the movie is going to auction.
A new buzz has been generated for the “Rocky” series after “Creed,” the first “Rocky” movie not written or directed by Sylvester Stallone.
Scenes from the 2015 movie were filmed at the Huntingdon, Pennsylvania estate that will be going to auction on Nov. 2.
From the press release:
Boxing fans and “Rocky” followers will also appreciate the mansion’s rags-to-riches story, so important to Stallone’s life and film themes. Built by a self-made auto parts magnate, a coal miner’s son and former mechanic, the property fell on hard times and after nine years was sold back to the bank that has now placed it on the auction block.
Sited on 5.33 landscaped, gated and forested acres, privacy is the word for this 16,130-square-foot mansion. With six bedrooms and eleven baths with the guest suite on the lower level separated from the family, the home was built using the finest materials with large fireplaces and impressive chandeliers.
The grand foyer features the soaring double staircase featured in the film and also included are a massive great room, cherry-paneled library with secret nooks and crannies, a game room with bar, arcade games and an indoor putting green and home theater. Outside the pool and spa terrace overlook the pastoral acreage.
