Having seen a price reduction of eight million dollars, the Chateau-esque Los Angeles mansion of actor and former funky bunch ringleader Mark Wahlberg is now tagged at $79.5 million.
Chateau Wahlberg has a big footprint to match its limestone pretentions; with 30,500 sq. ft. of interiors and 6.14 acres’ worth of grounds, its size is impressive even for its Beverly Park location. The property was initially listed in April of this year. Wahlberg had it custom built by Los Angeles trophy home expert Richard Landry; it was completed in 2014.
There are 12 bedrooms and a whopping 20 baths across the estate. The proportions of the main home are suggested by its entry lobby, which features a soaring ceiling with palatial aspirations; the available space allows for a long list of specialty rooms that hints at the grand L.A. mansions of the last century, for example the Hearst Estate and Spelling Manor. The list includes a wood-paneled library, a catering-ready double-kitchen setup with multiple pantries, staff quarters, offices, a home cinema, and a gym.
With outdoor amenities included, the list is expanded to include a five-hole golf course and driving range, a skate park, a pool with a grotto, a tennis court, various patios, and a guest house, all nestled into the property’s secluded little valley in the heart of the city.
Wahlberg’s upcoming projects include Arthur the King, with Simu Liu; Our Man from Jersey, with Halle Berry and J. K. Simmons; and The Family Plan, with Michelle Monaghan.
