Nearly $2 million has been lopped off the price of actor Mark Wahlberg's sprawling mansion in Beverly Hills, Zillow reported. The nearly 9,000-square-foot home was originally listed for $15.9 million in 2008, but the actor and his wife, Rhea Durham, took it off the market upon learning they were expecting a fourth child, according to Forbes.
The home, described as a Mediterranean-style "magical hideaway" sitting on 1.4 acres, is now listed for just shy of $14 million. Standout features of the estate include a master suite with his and hers bathrooms, four bedrooms, high ceilings, a state-of-the-art chef's kitchen, a movie-screening room and dining and living rooms fit for entertaining.
The property also features a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house; putting green; an outdoor pool with waterfall, grotto and cabanas; a sports court for basketball, tennis or racquetball; and a 2,500-square-foot, two-story gym with a full-size boxing ring.
Wahlberg bought the property for $5 million in 2001, and the Wall Street Journal reports that he's selling the home to focus on new digs: a 33,000-square-foot home in the ritzy Beverly Park neighborhood. The gated community is known for its ultra-wealthy residents and large estates - a 70-page homeowners' guide outlines that no home can be less than 5,000 square feet.
