Actor Mark Wahlberg sold his almost $90 million Los Angeles mansion and moved to Nevada for a “better life” where he can “work from home,” he said Tuesday.
Wahlberg, 51, revealed the life-changing news of his move on Tuesday’s episode of “The Talk,” where he explained how he’s managed to find a balance between his epic career and family. “Every free moment that I have, I’m at home. I moved to Nevada where after this gubernatorial election, hopefully it will go to legislation and get a bill passed so we can get tax credit for the state,” Wahlberg explained, adding that he hopes to build “Hollywood 2.0” alongside a number of other big professional pursuits.
“I want to be able to work from home,” Wahlberg explained. “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.” He added that he wants to give his four children with wife Rhea Durham “a better life and follow and pursue their dreams.”
Wahlberg placed his enormous Beverly Hills estate on the market in April for just shy of $90 million, according to the New York Post. The huge home, which bought in 2008 for $8.25 million, was roughly 30,500sq ft. (RELATED: Marvel’s Frank Grillo Rips LA Crime After His Boxing Trainer Is Shot And Killed Outside Weed Store)
He recently purchased a large plot of land in Summerlin, just outside of Las Vegas, for $15.6 million in July, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. “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 noted.
