Mega-producer and actor Tyler Perry listed his Beverly Hills mansion on Thursday for $16.995 million, less than six months after buying the property for $14.5 million.
Mr. Perry bought the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom house at a discount. The house on Mulholland Drive was first listed in July 2016 for $29.95 million, according to data from Realtor.com. After the house went through a series of price drops, Mr. Perry bought it for $1.45 million below its final asking price.
The house is located in Mulholland Estates, an exclusive gated community where famed Welsh crooner Tom Jones put a house up for sale last year.
The modern, 17,245-square-foot home features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, skylights and a motor court with space for up to 30 cars, according to the listing. There are fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, and the house features extensive city and canyon views.
At more than four acres, the property has an outdoor dining terrace, tennis court, basketball court, koi pond and stream. It also has an elaborate pool with a water slide, rock sculpture and grotto.
Mr. Perry, 48, is behind some of Hollywood’s highest-earning comedies, such as 2009’s “Madea Goes to Jail,” which brought in more than $90 million, and 2016’s “Boo! A Madea Halloween,” which grossed nearly $74 million. However, he also operates production out of Atlanta, where his production outfit, Tyler Perry Studios, is based. Mr. Perry’s representatives did not immediately respond to request for comment.
In 2016, Mr. Perry broke Atlanta real estate sales records when he sold his 17-acre estate for $17.5 million, after initially listing it for $25 million.
Mr. Perry, who owns the Mulholland Drive property under ETPC LLC, according to PropertyShark, also owns a six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in nearby Beverly Ridge Estates. The two houses are less than four miles apart.
Despite the house’s location, it has a decidedly un-Hollywood legacy. Built in 1992, the house was previously owned by Alfred Mann, an inventor and pioneer in biotech. Among Mann’s inventions was the insulin pump, which is used in the treatment of diabetes. Mr. Mann lived in the house until he died in 2016.
Joshua and Matthew Altman, the listing agents for the property, did not immediately respond to request for comment.
The listing was first reported by Trulia.
