A California home once owned by funny man Eddie Murphy has sold for $5.5 million, almost half of its original asking price — and that’s not a joke.

The Granite Bay home sold through auction to an unidentified buyer, the Los Angeles Times reported. It listed on the Multiple Listings Service in May for $10 million.

Located at Vista De Lago Court, in Northern California, the mansion spans 12,600 square feet, complete with 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. There’s also a 5,200-square-foot guest house, gym, swimming pool and sports court on the property.

Amenities include a game room, movie theater and “Shrek”-themed bedroom.

Murphy, an actor and comedian, lived in the 2.5-acre estate with his ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell Murphy. They sold the home in 2007 for $6.1 million, property records show.

Another home owned by Murphy — and pop icon Cher — is also being shopped around. The Beverly Hills mansion re-listed for $69 million in January, down from its original ask of $85 million in 2016. The compound includes a 20,000-square-foot main house and 7,000-square-foot guest house.

The comedian is best known for his roles in “Saturday Night Life,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Shrek” and “Trading Places.” [LAT] – Natalie Hoberman
