Actor Mark Wahlberg, who starred in Father Stu last year, has been hinting that he will likely leave the Hollywood industry sooner rather than later. The actor, who has over 60 film credits to his name, wants to spend more time with his family now. The actor is getting ready to leave his custom Beverly Hills home, which was completed less than ten years ago. In April, Wahlberg put the property on the market for $87.5 million, but he has since reduced the price to $79.5 million. The mansion translates to six acres, 30,000 square feet, 20 bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms. For celebrities, Vegas appears to be the new ‘it’ city. Leaving aside the wedding of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in Nevada, it appears that celebrities are swarming to the region. Big names are starting to flock to the area, including David Copperfield, who resides in a stunning mansion that has just everything. The house resembles a luxurious resort, in fact.
One more celebrity who has made the shift to this place is Mark Wahlberg. The actor made some big purchases in Vegas in addition to listing his magnificent Beverly Park estate for sale.

Inside Mark Wahlberg’s huge mansion up for sale!
Not only is Mark Wahlberg selling his house, but he’s also demanding a sizable sum of money. If he sells the house for the asking price, it will be the second-largest sale in Southern California this year, according to the LA Times. The lavish chateau-style house is located in a gated neighborhood in Beverly Park in Los Angeles on a 6.2-acre land parcel. It has a main house, a separate guesthouse, a pool cabana, and a viewing pavilion next to the sports court. They add up to the 12 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms on the property. The massive structure’s exterior features French countryside-inspired design elements, designed by architect Richard Landry. Entering through the front doors reveals a double-height space with custom millwork and a grand staircase with elaborate iron balusters. There are fireplaces in each room, including one of the bathrooms, and the majority of rooms have coffered ceilings.
In the 1990s, Mark Wahlberg became famous for his rapping. He then starred in successful movies like The Departed and Ted. The actor opened Wahlburgers, a fast-food restaurant chain, in 2011 with his brothers Paul and Donnie. Wahlberg bought the house in 2009 for a total of $8.25 million. He carried out a sizable renovation that wasn’t finished until 2014.
Mark Wahlberg builds a second shelter
Mark Wahlberg doesn’t have to wait for the sale of his Beverly Park house because he has a massive net worth of $400 million. His initial strategy, according to The Dirt, was to relocate the family to Florida. Wahlberg ultimately changed the plan by purchasing land in Las Vegas. Wahlberg paid $15.6 million for 2.5 acres on which to construct a luxurious mansion in the Summit Club, according to information published by The Dirt. The actor also bought a temporary residence for his family to live in while the construction of the new purchase is underway. In an interview with People, Wahlberg said that Vegas has a great deal of potential to become an upscale version of Hollywood.
“We moved to Nevada where, after this gubernatorial election, hopefully we go to legislation and get a bill passed so we can get tax credits for the state, build a state-of-the-art studio here and make this Hollywood 2.0.”
Ultimately, putting business aside, the relocation was also largely motivated by his children’s future.
