The Sacramento mansion built by actor Eddie Murphy in 1996 is put up for sale by its current owner. For the asking price of $12 million future owners are slated to get a total of 12,600 square feet and 5,200 square feet of guest home. It sits on a 2.5 acre land in the city of Granite Bay, just outside of Sacramento.
The mansion featuring 10 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, a 12-seat screening room with purple seats, a gourmet kitchen and a billiards room also has an arcade parlor with a vintage Pac-Man machine. It has four bars ready to entertain guests at any time with a glass of whatever fancy drink they prefer. The well appointed former Murphy home features a 1,200 sq ft. commercial quality gym complete with sauna and steam room. Other amenities include purple marble flooring and lush carpeting.
Current owner has not changed much of the home from the days of Murphy family. House still has a semi-circular purple sofa in the living room, a cassette deck in the family room and a Shrek-themed bedroom.
Outside there is an infinity pool with two waterfalls, a 9 car garage, and a tennis and a basketball court.
“As soon as you walk in it has that wow factor,” said Nick Sadek, one of two listing agents for the property and a specialist in multimillion-dollar homes. The Granite Bay house was built for the Murphys and their five children because Nicole Mitchell Murphy was from Sacramento.
The home is being sold with all the furnishings acquired the property from the Murphy family, including a Shrek-themed bedroom, and a rare Luigi Colani designed Schimmel Pegasus piano (rumored to be one of only 14 ever built).
Mansion was sold in 2007 by Eddie Murphy for $6.1 million after his divorce from Nicole Murphy.
