Mark Wahlberg admitted that he moved his family out of their opulent $90 million California estate in search of a “better life.” On Tuesday’s “The Talk” episode, Wahlberg discussed the “biggest challenge” he confronts in juggling his career and being a family man.
Wahlberg, 51, stated, “I want to be able to work from home. I moved to California many years ago to pursue acting, and I’ve only made a couple of movies in the entire time that I was there. So, to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, or my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us.”
Additionally, Mark Wahlberg has four children: Ella, 18, Michael, 16, Brendan, 13, and Grace, 12with his wife of 13 years, Rhea Durham.
Furthermore, Wahlberg put his Beverly Hills house on the market in April for a staggering $87.5 million. He paid just $8.25 million for the enormous 30,500-square-foot estate back in 2009.
The mansion has a home theatre, a wine cellar, a five-hole golf course, a tennis court, a skate park, and a separate guest house in addition to its 12 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms.
The “Uncharted” actor bought his family a magnificent mansion in Nevada after deciding to sell his lavish property in California.
Moreover, in July, Wahlberg spent $15.6 million on a house in Summerlin, a suburb of Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“We came here to just kind of give ourselves a new look, a fresh start for the kids, and there’s a lot of opportunity here. I’m really excited about the future,” Wahlberg revealed.
On another note, to create “Hollywood 2.0,” Wahlberg said he intends to construct a “state-of-the-art studio” in his new pad. The actor added that he wants to construct “a shoe factory and a factory for Municipal,” the sports apparel company he co-founded in 2019.
