Soap Star Maurice Benard and his wife Paula have put their Hollywood Hills home on the market for $2.9 million. Situated on over an acre of land, this custom-built home boasts nearly five thousand square feet of living space. The three bedroom, three bathroom structure is made up of pitched ceiling beams, wood floors, and walls of glass to frame the 360 degree city and treetop views. Along with a top-of-the-line Chef's kitchen, the home has been designed with granite countertops, wood cabinets, a master suite with walk-in closets, a screening room, a media room, and a private gym that doubles as a maid's quarters.

Maurice Benard is most recognized by his role of Sonny Corinthos, Jr. on ABC's General Hospital. Benard also played Desi Arnaz in the biopic, "Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter." After being diagnosed with bi-polar disorder in his early twenties, Benard has become an advocate for the education and treatment of the bi-polar disorder. He married Paula Smith in 1990, and they have four children together.
