Olympic legend Michael Phelps is living in luxury.

In December, the winningest athlete in the history of the Games purchased a $2.53 million home in Paradise Valley, Arizona, near his training base for Rio de Janeiro.

Now, after taking home five gold medals and one silver, the newly retired Phelps will live there permanently while serving as an assistant coach at Arizona State University.

According to Catherine Reagor of the Arizona Republic, the 6,010-square-foot house features five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms.

Oh, and (shockingly) there's a massive pool.
