Fast-chatting comedian, Chris Tucker, has been a Tarzana, CA resident since 1996 when he purchased his first Mulholland Park Estates home for $1,113,500. That’s right – his first. According to The Real Estalker, this wasn’t Tucker’s only Tarzana real estate transaction. After earning a jaw-dropping $20 million for his second performance as Detective James Carter in “Rush Hour 2,” the karate-chopping actor dropped $2.4 million on a second Tarzana property that just so happened to be right next door to his current home.
The 38-year-old actor was a two-house homeowner in the elite neighborhood up until 2008 when he sold his second purchased property, a 6,549-sq ft, 5-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home, for $3,800,000. Now, it appears Tucker is ready to cut the rest of his Los Angeles real estate ties as he stuck a $2,499,000 listing price on his long-time Tarzana home earlier this month.
Tucker’s Tarzana home features “unobstructed views overlooking the San Fernando valley,” nearly 6,400-sq ft, 7 bathrooms, a large living room, dining room, office, spacious kitchen, master bedroom with a sitting area, fireplace and balcony, and 4 additional bedrooms, all of which are junior suites with their own en suite bathrooms. Outdoor amenities include a basketball court, motor court, and pool all situated on a beautifully landscaped .73-acre lot.
Tucker won’t be rushing to find a new mansion in the Sunshine State. He still owns two properties on the opposite side of the country — a 13,227-sq ft mansion in McDonough, GA and a 5,907-sq ft home in Montverde, FL.
Tony Truisi of Coldwell Banker, Beverly Hills, holds the listing.
