Eight months ago, Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham listed their lavish North Beverly Park estate on the market for a staggering $87.5 million price tag. Tucked away in what is known as the most exclusive gated community on the West Coast, the 30,500-square foot chateau, designed by well-known architect Richard Landry, is an incredible two-story home which sits on six acres of land and acts as its own private country club.
Now sporting freshly staged interiors, new listing photos, and a new listing agent, Mark and Rhea’s estate has been re-listed at a surprisingly reduced ask of $79.5 million dollars — a cool $8 million less than the original ask.
Designed over the course of five years, Mark and Rhea originally purchased the vacant lot back in 2009 for $8.25 million. The entire project was completed in 2014 and now features the main mansion — which has a grand total of 12 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms — and six other structures spread out across the land.
Upon arriving at the entrance of the estate, the new owner and guests will be greeted with an awe-inspiring two-story entry lobby that boasts a beautiful bridal staircase leading to an extravagant multi-level living room, dining room, and two-story paneled library. On the main level of the home, an enormous kitchen/family room offers multiple pantries, an entirely separate prep kitchen, and both staff quarters and offices.
When exploring the lower level, you’ll find a top-of-the-line home theater, full gym, and a wine and cigar cellar with a tasting/smoking lounge. And if that’s not cool enough, the main level opens up to large patios and sprawling green lawns. Large manicured gardens tie the six-acre grounds together while a five-hole golf course with driving range and a tennis court make the space a giant adult playground. Other notable outdoor features include a resort-style grotto pool, a skate park, and a beautiful guest house.
While the new listing price is not what the celebrity couple originally wanted, if the estate were to sell, it would put them — and new listing agent Carl Gambino of Compass Real Estate — on the map for the most expensive property ever sold in North Beverly Park. And if you ask me, that’s a win any way you look at it.
