Martin Lawrence's Home
There are those who will tell you that fame and fortune is not
all that it's made out to be, but for those of us on the outside
looking in, that seems a little hard to believe. This is especially
true when you look at all the trappings that come with fame, with
most of us especially interested in the homes occupied by the
Interior of Martin Lawrence House
If you don't
believe that to be true, take a trip to that part a world
and see how many bus tours there are that will take you
around the neighborhoods of the rich and famous.
One of the homes that you may see when you are out and about
is the one that belongs to comedian and actor Martin Lawrence.
The star of hits like Bad Boys and Big Momma's House has parlayed
his success into an incredibly beautiful property in the heart
of Beverly Hills.
You might believe that Mr. Lawrence has it made when you see
that home, but just like us, celebrities have real world problems
that can turn a happy home into something they can't wait to be
rid of. Such is the case with Martin's sumptuous property.
When Martin and his wife divorced, it quickly became obvious
that the 15,000 square foot property might be just a little too
big for one person. While Mr. Lawrence decided whether or not
to put the house on the market, he took to trying to rent it out
for a modest $200,000 per week.

When no-one was willing to pay that price, the home went on the
market at the rather eye-popping list price of $26.5 million.
What exactly does that kind of money get you? Let's take a look
Well, you definitely get plenty of room to move. Besides the
huge interior space, there is also the 2.2 acres of land that
the mansion sits on. Included on the land are an incredible garden
space, sunken tennis courts, and an outdoor kitchen that is the
perfect place to entertain guests.
Don't worry about too many people coming over at one time, as
there is an oversized motor court that has plenty of parking spots
for your Hollywood friends.
The first thing that hits you when you walk through the front
doors, besides the sheer size of the place, is the marble entry,
with a large staircase curving up to the left of the lobby. All
told, there are 7 bedrooms on the property, but why would you
want to sleep when there is a movie to watch in the theater room
that even has its own concession stand?
You will also find a wining and dining room, a games room, and
a massive eat-in kitchen, all of which are beautifully decorated.
If this all sounds like somewhere you could make home, all you
need to do is come up with a cool $26.5 million.
