Actor and director Tyler Perry just purchased a stunning Beverly Hills mansion for $14.5 million.
The 17,245 glass-walled home located in the coveted and gated Mulholland Estates has 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and boasts views of the Los Angeles valley. Built in 1992, the estate was once home to inventor, physicist and philanthropist Alfred Mann before he died in 2016, according to Mansion Global.
The four-acre property is fit for someone vying for an "unparalleled lifestyle of seclusion," says its listing, and has a long private driveway with a motor court that can fit more than 30 cars. The home's interior includes floor-to-ceiling glass walls, marble stairs and tall, angular ceilings with skylights. Outside, the property includes a resort-style pool complete with a waterfall, a Koi pond, a tennis court and an outdoor dining area "specifically designed for concerts, fundraisers or holiday parties," the listing said. It also has a one-acre playground.
"He came and saw it and fell in love with it," Jeff Hyland, the president of Hilton & Hyland and a listing agent for the property, told Mansion Global. When reached by phone Wednesday, his office declined to comment.
Perry's new home is not too far from those of celebrities like DJ Khaled, Christina Aguilera and Joaquin Phoenix, according to Trulia. The 47-year-old comedian and filmmaker has played the recurring role of Madea in a number of films, including the forthcoming "Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween," due later this year, and "Tyler Perry's a Madea Family Funeral," hitting theaters in 2018.
