The estate used to film the VH-1 show “Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch,” starring Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, is on the market in the Beverly Hills Post Office area at $13.5 million.

The gated Tuscan-style villa had been leased to the reality dating series, which premiered Sunday.

Designed for entertaining, the house includes a great room with 28-foot-high coffered ceilings, a drop-down projector and a 15-foot retractable screen. The entry has dual winding staircases. A two-story guesthouse with indoor and outdoor fireplaces is adjacent to the swimming pool and spa area. Combined there are nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms and more than 15,000 square feet of living space. The motor court has parking for up to 100 cars.

The property is being marketed with two adjacent lots priced at $3 million and $1.5 million, for a total of 10 acres.


Ochocinco, 32, was a celebrity contestant this year on “Dancing With the Stars.” He has played for the Bengals since 2001. In his new show he narrows down a field of 85 in search of a mate. Eighty-five is his uniform number and the inspiration for his last name, which he changed from Johnson.

Lynne Duquette and Thomas O’Rourke at Prudential California’s Pacific Design Center office have the listing.
