Cuba Gooding Jr. just listed the Pacific Palisades home that he’s lived in since 2000 for $11.995 million. The “Machete Kills” star purchased the home for $3.5 million, and made it his pet project after he bought it, undertaking a major renovation that lasted two years.
The seven bedroom, 6.5 bath home features a roller hockey rink, pool, spa, home theater, six car garage, boxing gym, wine cellar and butler’s pantry. Interior details include French doors and windows, walnut and stone floors, beamed ceilings, and a master bedroom with a fireplace, terrace, marble bath, and giant closets. The English Country-style house was built in 1941, and underwent a remodel in 1975, before Gooding Jr. bought it. The resort-style grounds include a private driveway, expansive lawn, and a detached guest house.
On August 9, 2013, Gooding Jr. sold his home in Northridge, CA, for only $735,000. Redfin agent Julie Jacobson toured the home, and left the following Tour Insight: “The home has new paint and carpet, but seems to have mostly original cosmetics otherwise. The den, kitchen and formal dining room all have access to the backyard and a large very overgrown patio. There is one bedroom downstairs, with office built-ins adjacent to the bathroom, and the remaining bedrooms are upstairs, including a master suite with private balcony. There’s also a huge bonus room with hill views and built-ins on the second level. The backyard has a bit of grass, but is mostly patio and pool with some slope over a busy street, but with a lot of mature foliage. The attached garage has an internal entrance that leads to the laundry room.”
