So even though Lance Armstrong has sold his Austin abode, he still plans on calling the city his “home.” The real test is whether the city will still claim the cyclist who, in an Oprah interview rife with crocodile tears, admitted to doping his way through winning the Tour de France numerous times.
The Camp Mabry Spanish-style home was purchased in 2004 by Armstrong, who renovated the almost 8,000-square-foot mansion. It was on the market for around $10 million.
You can read the whole deal on the Austin American-Statesman website, but you shouldn’t miss out on this little tidbit.
“I’m glad this house stayed with a loyal Austinite,” Koehler said in an email to the American-Statesman. “We can do a lot of good for the city of Austin with this home. … I didn’t pay anything close to that (listing), but the Austin rumor mill is what it is.”
