After first listing it for $87.5 million in April 2022, Mark Wahlberg and his wife, Rhea Durham, have found a buyer for their 30,500-square-foot mansion at a price much less than their original ask, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The property sold for $55 million — which is still nothing to sneeze at — on Friday, according to Zillow. The listing portal’s price history also shows that after it was first listed in April, the property was taken off the market for about one month in October. Then it was listed again for an adjusted price of $79.5 million at the end of November.
Carl Gambino of Compass and Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency represented the listing. Ginger Glass of Compass represented the buyer, who was not immediately identified.
Records show that the celebrity couple purchased the property for roughly $8.25 million in 2009 and then commissioned the chateau-style estate for construction.

“Essentially, this is your own private country club,” the listing description teases.
Interior design elements include a two-story entryway with a double staircase, a grand living room with arched doorways and a wood-paneled library with a second-level balcony.
