*Martin Lawrence is selling his extravagant $26.5 million mansion a year after splitting with his wife.
The actor’s Beverly Hills mansion is immaculate and lush. Prior to listing it on the market, the star was renting the spot for $200,000 monthly.
It’s a seven bedroom, 10 bathroom property, amassed over 15,000 square feet.
The estate was also the site for his wedding with Shamicka Gibbs in 2010; they were a couple 15 years before their wedding.
But the couple split in April 2012 and Martin filed for divorce.
Strange how things happen.
Together they have two girls.
Back to the mansion, it’s clad with a grand marble entry, a formal living room, wine and dining room, family room, game room and huge eat-in kitchen.
Of course it includes a home theater, which also has a concession stand.
In total, the property is a gracious 2.2 acres of land. If you decide to move in, please believe you’ll also get to enjoy an outdoor kitchen, tennis court, motor court and lots of parking for your array of cars.
