Sinbad lists his Hidden Hills home at $ 3 million


Stand-up comic and actor Sinbad has listed his longtime family home in gated Hidden Hills at $3 million.

A long private driveway leads to the five-bedroom, five-bathroom country estate, which sits on a hilltop amid mature trees on 2.5 acres. There are fireplaces in the formal dining room and an office/family room, 5,064 square feet of living space, a guesthouse with a kitchen, a recording studio, a pool with waterfalls and a barn.

Sinbad, 53, appeared as a finalist on Ed McMahon’s “Star Search” (1983) and went on to work in HBO specials, television series and movies. In film, he starred in “First Kid” (1996), “Jingle All the Way” (1996) and “Houseguest” (1995). On TV, he had the title role in “The Sinbad Show” (1993-1994) and played coach Walter Oakes on “A Different World” (1987-1991). A DVD of the comedian’s Comedy Central concert “Sinbad: Where U Been?” is set for release later this month.

Public records show Sinbad purchased the property in 2007 for $1,525,000.

Marty Trugman and Cara Sheriff of Teles Properties, Beverly Hills, have the listing.
