Eddie Murphy's Former Granite Bay Home is For Sale at $12 Million

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

I know it's a tough choice where to live and which home to buy. Maybe you would like to live in the gated Los Lagos community in Granite Bay and romp around Eddie Murphy's palatial former estate, which is presently for sale at $12 million? That home has 10 bedrooms and 14 baths, and just think, you can could run barefoot on the very same purple marble that once touched the bare toes of Eddie Murphy and all of his friends and family members? How cool is that? Of course, I have other ideas and a suggestion for you. I would be remiss if I didn't. You can read more in my personal blog today about Granite Bay Home for $12 Million or East Sacramento Home?

OK. I'm thinking about it...how much land comes with that ? Can you have horses there? Is the frig included?  :-)

Hi Mary: There is only 2.5 acres, and I don't believe it is zoned for horses, but you can park 8 cars in the garages and there is additional guest parking. I suppose if a horse were visiting, one could tie it up to one of the palm trees.

Elizabeth, Purple marble ... hum?  That is a good energy color for my feet. $12M is a little over my budget.

The bedroom to bathroom ratio in Eddie's former estate is way off.  I'll take the East Sacramento home for $399,000 and still be able to afford the little luxuries in life...like eating, gas for my car, and clothes.

Elizabeth - It's always fun to take a look inside a former celebrity home and see how the stars may have lived.  I hope buyers looking for a trophy property will call you. You're in the know when it comes to luxury properties!

Hi Elizabeth.  I would have bought it but the color purple turns me off
