Eddie Murphy’s former Northern California mansion set for auction after it fails to sell for $10m 

The massive mansion that once belonged to actor Eddie Murphy and hit the marker for $10million over the summer, will be auctioned off later this month after failing to sell. 

DeCaro Auctions International plans to auction off the abode on October 27 and it will be fully furnished, the auction house said in a press release obtained by the Sacramento Bee.

The auction will be an absolute one, ‘meaning the estate goes to the highest bidder no matter the price’, the news release stated. It will be held at 9125 Vista De Lago Court at 11 am. 

Remote bidding will be available and there will be no minimum prices when bidding starts. 

Murphy first sold the home in 2007 for $6.1million. The home was listed for $12million in 2014 and $10million in July. 

Like something from a James Bond movie: Eddie Murphy’s former home located in Granite Bay, which is near Sacramento, California, has been listed for $10m

‘This exclusive neighborhood is home to several actors and athletes, and is known for its privacy and seclusion, offering all the best of California living,’ Daniel DeCaro, founder and CEO of the auction house, said. 

The sprawling property is located in Granite Bay, which is near Sacramento,California, and only an hour drive from San Francisco.

The 10 bedroom/14 bathroom palace, which sits atop a hill offering sweeping views of the valley below and the Sierra Nevada mountains, is being offered for $10 million.

The spread was purchased from Nicole Murphy by a real estate investor who now resides in Nevada.

The listing was held jointly by both Nick Sadek of Nick Sadek Sotheby’s International Realty and Jon Kirkpatrick with Chase International.

The white villa is 12,600 square feet and has a 1980s over-the-top feeling to it with it’s light facade and curves in the walls.

Its design roots are Mediterranean, and the house does lend a European vibe, but there are so many modern-day accents that it’s more of a California crossover.

The two story dwelling has floor-to-ceiling windows that have a tint to them to keep up the sun’s harsh rays.

And there is plenty of balcony space. All along the second floor are wraparound balconies ad there is a generous porch on the first floor.

Two sets of stairs lead to the large infinity pool that includes a hot top as well as landscaping with palm trees and rocks. And there appears to be another, more private hot tub off to the side.

Classy: The master bedroom is a movie star's dream because it's not just large but decadent with 1970s accents. The bed rests on a plateau that takes two steps to get up to. The carpet is shaggy and wall to wall for extra comfort on those chilly mornings. And there is a fireplace nearby as well

There is also a lush lawn off near the east wing, but smartly it isn’t too large which benefits the drought prone area.

Inside, there are several rooms that scream luxury.

One room that looks ideal for TV watching is the living room off the kitchen.

It is a two-step down space with wall-to-wall carpeting in a deep mocha brown with large windows looking out over a mountain scape.

There is also a fireplace for those cold Northern California nights and a built-in lounge space by the window.

The built-in enertainment unit looks permanent.

The kitchen is beige and granite with a small island and a large wraparound counter that could seat eight people. 

The kitchen also has two ovens, a hidden refrigerator and a stove top range.
