Eddie Murphy’s 32-room Home is no Laughing Matter

Funny-man Eddie Murphy was probably not laughing last week when he sliced the listing price of his Englewood, New Jersey mansion in half after the home was on the market for almost five years without selling.

The extremely successful actor and comedian, and less successful home seller, originally listed his mansion in 2004 for a whopping $30 million, making it the most expensive single-family home in all of New Jersey.

Due to a lack of potential buyers with that amount of money willing to take the home off of Murphy’s hands, he appeared to have no choice but to drop the listing price to a still respectable but significantly lower $15 million, in hope that this will end the five year stretch of no interested buyers.

Murphy’s home is an impressive estate known as Bubble Hill which sits on a five-acre, gated property just 10 minutes from Manhattan. The Colonial-style home features 32 rooms, a bowling alley, indoor pool, racquetball court, elevator and gym.
