Lisa Ann Taylor Puts Her Mansion On Sale For $1.2 million


Life has not been easy for Lisa Ann Taylor since her guilty plea deal to several charges and her sentencing to seven years of probation.

The former Penthouse pet who had been accused of running a brothel out of her million-dollar home has put the mansion up for sale.

Lisa Ann Taylor has put the red-brick mansion, which sits in an exclusive suburban Atlanta subdivision, up for sale for $1.2 million.

Taylor, who has also performed under the name Melissa Wolf, became known as the Mansion Madam after being arrested along with another woman last year on prostitution and drug charges. As part of a plea deal, Taylor was sentenced to seven years probation and fined $150,000. If the fine isn't paid before Oct. 10, Gwinnett County can seize her home.

But Taylor said Tuesday that outcome is not likely.

"It's a good thing I put all that money away all those years ago," Taylor told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Taylor said she owns several other properties, including a house in Canada and a condominium worth more than $400,000.

Taylor built the five-and-one-half bath home in the 1990's for about $500,000. At the height of the market last year, it was assessed at more than $1 million by Gwinnett County tax assessors.

Darrell Bacon, Taylor's real estate agent, described her home as "an entertainer's paradise."

And so far, Taylor's house has not drawn much attention from gawkers looking to sight-see in Taylor's bedrooms, Bacon said.

"We don't have any spectators. It's been rather pleasant," Bacon said. "We've had some offers, but very few people are getting what I would call strong offers. Everyone is looking for a deal."

Last November, prosecutors dropped prostitution and drug charges against Taylor's co-defendant, Nicole Probert.
