Looks like Madea’s next family reunion will be in Beverly Hills.

Director and actor Tyler Perry, who plays the gun-toting grandma in the comedy “Madea’s Family Reunion,” purchased a Beverly Hills mansion off the famous Mulholland Drive for $14.5 million.

The 17,245-square-foot property has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with a motor court for more than 30 cars, Trulia reported.

The home belonged to the estate of billionaire and physicist Alfred Mann, who died last year. It first hit the market last summer for $29.9 million before dropping to its most recent asking price of $15.9 million, according to listing details.  

The massive estate sits on more than four acres and features floor-to-ceiling glass walls with steel beams and a marble staircase. It also has a koi pond and stream that flows through the home. 

The backyard has a swimming pool with rock sculpture, slide and grotto, as well as a lighted tennis court. There’s also an outdoor dining terrace specifically designed for concerts, fundraisers or parties, according to listing details.

Jeff Hyland of Hilton & Hyland, along with Mauricio Umansky and Ninkey Dalton of the Agency held the listing. Josh and Matthew Altman of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer.

In addition to his famous role as Madea, Perry has created the television shows “House of Payne” and “If Loving You Is Wrong.” [Trulia] — Subrina Hudson
