The Northridge compound where late comedian and actor Richard Pryor made his home for years has been sold to former pro football player Rashard Mendenhall for $2.5 million.
The 2.2-acre walled and gated property in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood features a Spanish-style main home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It features a kitchen with a tiled island, a library, a billiards room and a wine closet.
In the family room, there's a sunken wet bar. The master suite has French doors that open to a balcony overlooking the grounds.
A guesthouse, a pool house, a dance studio and a playhouse are among the other structures on the estate. In all, the buildings combine for more than 9,000 square feet of living space.
Out-of-the-ordinary features include a kennel and event parking for more than 25 vehicles.
The property previously changed hands in 1989 for $940,000, records show.
Mendenhall, 29, was in the NFL for six seasons, splitting his time between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals. He works as a writer for the HBO series "Ballers."
Pryor, who died in 2005 at 65, was a stand-up comedian and actor whose credits include "Silver Streak" (1976), "Brewster's Millions" (1985) and "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" (1989).
Neil McDermott and Beate Kessler-McDermott, both with Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, handled the sale.
