When Jim Belushi listed his Brentwood Italianate-style villa in 2017, it came with an adjoining half-acre lot. The total price for the mansion and the land: $38.5 million.

There were no takers. Now, the actor and comedian is relisting the home — lot not included — for $28 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He purchased the 11,800 square-foot mansion on South Burlingame Avenue more than a decade ago for $8.3 million, the Times reported. Belushi, brother of John Belushi, is known for his roles on the TV series “According to Jim,” along with films that include “Taking Care of Business” and “Mr. Destiny.”

The gated estate was built in 2010 and designed by Oscar Shamamian. It includes six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a screening room. The .85-acre property also features a guesthouse, swimming pool and pool house, according to the report. The listing agent is Elisabeth Halsted with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

Belushi isn’t the only resident in Brentwood slashing prices. A 48-acre Amber Hills Estate in Brentwood was relisted in February after the owner cut $3 million from its asking price. That same month, nail polish mogul Miriam Schaeffer paid $15 million for a Brentwood home, a 20-percent discount from its original asking price. [LAT]Gregory Cornfield
