Actor Mark Wahlberg puts Beverly Hills home on the market

Mark Wahlberg has listed his Beverly Hills home for sale at $13,995,000.

The contemporary Mediterranean, built in 1985, has been updated throughout. In addition to the main house with a two-bathroom master suite and four other bedroom suites, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse and a 2,500-square-foot detached gym with a boxing ring are on the property. The actor trained there for his starring role in "The Fighter" (2010).

The 1.75 acres include a swimming pool with a grotto and waterfalls, a putting green and a sports court.

Wahlberg, 40, is the executive producer of "Entourage" (2006-11) and "How to Make It in America" (2010-11). He was nominated for an Academy Award for his supporting actor role in "The Departed" (2006). Earlier, he appeared in "Boogie Nights" (1997), "Three Kings" (1999) and "I Heart Huckabees" (2004).

The family home was marketed in 2008 at $15.9 million. Wahlberg is selling because he is building a 33,000-square-foot house in a gated community.

Felix Pena of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, and Hillel Sanowicz of Keller Williams Realty, Sunset Plaza, are the listing agents.
