Not even celebrity pedigree could help this house sell at its sticker price.
The former home of actor Mark Wahlberg sold for $12.4 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. And while that is steep, it’s miles from the original asking price of $30 million when it hit the market two years ago.
Located in Beverly Hills Post Office, the 11,500-square-foot residence has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a theater, billiards room, putting green, guest house and wet bar. Wahlberg included a Boston Celtics-themed basketball court, airplane hangar, two-story gym and boxing ring during his time there.
Valerie Fitzgerald, a Coldwell Banker agent who had the listing two years ago, described the home as a “real guys playpen.”
The East Coast-native sold the home in 2013 for $10.3 million, property records show.
Douglas Elliman’s Josh and Matt Altman shared the listing with David Vaystub. The Altman brothers also represented the buyer.
