Mark Wahlberg is usually quite successful. He transitioned from his roots as a rapper and model to a blockbuster career as an actor and later expanded to producing, adding his name to the highly popular TV show “Entourage.”
However, Wahlberg has not found the same sort of success with selling a particular piece of property. The home in question, a sprawling 8,932-square-foot home at 9694 Oak Pass Rd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, was listed in 2008. After a series of price chops as well as some time on and off the market, the house just sold for $12.995 million, according to the L.A. Times.
The home was built in 1985, but after Wahlberg bought it in 2001 for $4.95 million he began a full renovation to get it up to his star standards. One of the biggest additions was a full gym, which is where he reportedly did most of the training for his role in the award-winning film “The Fighter.”
Sitting on 1.73 acres, the house is typical of a celebrity home, surrounded by high walls and situated in a gated and private community. Despite the length of time it took Wahlberg to sell his home, Beverly Hills homes typically sell pretty well. Median home values are up 25.7 percent year-over-year, and 161 homes are currently for sale on the Beverly Hills real estate market.
Wahlberg and his wife have moved on to a new home in Beverly Park.
