Andre The Giant
As a professional wrestler in the ring Andre was billed at 7-foot-4 and weighed in at a colossal 500 pounds, a truly unique guy in the world of professional wrestling. Truly monstrous in stature, he earned millions in the ring over the course of his career. He was also said to be really loved amongst his friends and fellow wrestlers, proven by the huge turnout at his funeral in 1993.
His house is as impressive as the man himself. The North Carolina property is located in Ellerbe, spanning 45 acres. The home itself is 3,500 square foot and includes 3 floors. There’s several unique features too – such as a rock fireplace, jacuzzi, and an impressive dome skylight. Many visitors have said the house reminds them of a castle.
The whole place sits on a ranch which includes another few interesting features. Not one, but two streams run through the property. There’s also a workshop, and a truly unique barbecue house. By those who knew him, it’s said that Andre’s heart was as big as his boots – a truly funny, kind, and generous individual. More than 2 decades on you’re still dearly missed by fans around the world, big man.
