Considered as one of the most successful and rich athletes of all time, there’s no question Manny Pacquiao can afford to buy a house in Forbes Park.
According to report, Manny Pacquiao purchased the house worth P388 Million ($9 Million) inside Forbes Park in 2011, one of the most exclusive subdivisions in the country and home to various Filipino billionaires and celebrities.
According to their Architect Royal Pindea, “In the interior styling, we wanted to create a modern tropical mansion fit for Manny’s stature, It needed to be more luxurious than just a resort-like design.”
The house located on Cambridge Street, North Forbes, Makati City is estimated to be about 1,500 square meters in size and is said to have its own tennis court. The house was previously owned by Roque Tordesillas, Senior Vice President of insurance brokerage firm Marsh Philippines.
Pacquiao can definitely afford the multi-million property. Their Forbes Park Mansion also serves as their halfway home from General Santos City, the extension of Manny’s Senate office and taping set for his show entitled “Stories for the Soul” with GMA network.
Based on his 2010 Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Network, the house value is just one-third of Pacquiao’s total net worth of P1.13 Billion ($26 Million).
Pacquiao’s newest mansion is even more expensive than the Los Angeles, USA house that Manny bought in 2009.
Also, his mansion in GenSan is said to be on its way, which has been reported to be three times bigger than their Forbes Park Mansion.
