Academy-award winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is hoping someone will show him the money for his no-expense-spared, custom-rebuilt home that he just listed at $11.995 million.
Gooding, who brought the "show me the money" line into our vernacular with his award-winning role in "Jerry Maguire" (1996) and more recently starred in "Machete Kills," bought the house in Pacific Palisades, Calif. for $3.5 million in 2000 and pretty much re-did it from top to bottom.
In its current incarnation, the English Country-style manse has a roller hockey rink, boxing gym, state-of-the-art home theater, pool, six-car garage and wine cellar. The master suite has a fireplace, private terrace, marble bath and dual furniture-grade closets.
The seven-bedroom house sits on a treed acre behind gates and at the end of a private lane. The home has steel French doors and windows, hand-distressed wide-board walnut and stone floors, beamed ceilings and five fireplaces. The formal living room has wrap-around windows that open to a loggia with an outdoor fireplace.
David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services has the listing.
