Gorgeous mansion near Sacramento that once belonged to Eddie Murphy is on sale again for $12 million. A 2.5-acre estate in Granite Bay was sold in 2007 to its current owner (Patrick Willis, an investor from Nevada) for $6.1 million. Eddie bought the house in 1998 when he was married to his ex-wife Nicole Mitchell. According to the listing description, the house is the “Crown Jewel of Los Lagos.” The Sierra Nevada foothills, Folsom Lake and the Sacramento skyline are all in full view of this impressive spread.
The property consists of the massive 12,600-square-foot home and 5,200-square-foot guesthouse, virtually unchanged from when it was sold six years ago. That means it is still furnished with a semi-circular purple sofa in the living room, a cassette deck in the family room, a Shrek-themed bedroom and a vintage Ms. Pac-Man machine in the video arcade.
There’s also a large professional-quality gym, 12-seat theater, game arcade, billiard room and a rare Schimmel Pegasus Piano. Not to forget gorgeous infinity pool with a two waterfalls. Other amenities include a Vantage lighting system, handmade artisan wall finishes, in-floor heating and elevator to extraordinary custom furnishings.
