Most recently, the swimmer gained five golds and one silver at 2016’s Rio Games. To achieve this remarkable feat, Phelps trained at the Skyline Aquatic Center in Mesa, Arizona. However, this required a move from his native Baltimore – where he reportedly owned a $960,000 townhouse – to the Sunset State.
Certainly, the area’s sunlit vistas make a change from Baltimore’s sprawling cityscape. And, befitting an area of such beauty, the home comes with a hefty price tag. Indeed, the mansion’s $2.5 million value is enough to make even the sturdiest of jaws drop.
Still, Phelps isn’t exactly short of money. In fact, the home’s asking price is nothing compared to the athlete’s overall worth. With endorsements from the likes of Aqua Sphere and Sol Republic, Phelps has an estimated $55 million in the bank.
