Tyler Perry recently made history in Atlanta when he sold his 35,000 square foot mansion for $17.5 million, the most expensive Atlanta residential property to sell to date.  People were scratching their heads when Perry put his mansion equipped with a spa, tennis court, and infinity pool up for sale, but Perry is now explaining why he sold his home.

Perry says he moved out of the city, and traded his mansion in for more land.  Perry would like to have enough space for horses, pigs, and a garden to grow organic vegetables.  He says the distance to the studio is the same as his old house, but he now has much more space since he is outside the city.

Check out what Perry has to say about his new place below, and read more on the story here.
