Acclaimed actress Whoopi Goldberg has listed her longtime home in the Riviera section of Pacific Palisades for $8.8 million.

Goldberg bought the pink Art Deco/Moderne home in 1993 for $2.55 million using her real name, Caryn Johnson, according to the Wall Street Journal. At the time, Goldberg was at the peak of her Hollywood career, fresh off box off hits like “Sister Act” and three years after winning an Academy Award for her role in “Ghost.”

Author Vicki Baum built the 7,000-square-foot house in 1933 and it was later owned by actor David Niven. It still has many of its original details including marble checkerboard floors in the entryway, crown moldings and “pink weeping brick exterior walls,” according to its listing.

It features five bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a separate guest house, a three-car garage and pool. The main house includes a staff office and a “hidden speakeasy bar.” The home sits on roughly a half acre overlooking a canyon.
