Underwear model turned A-lister turned producer Mark Wahlberg seems to have just the one field he can't seem to crack: real estate. The Massachusetts-born actor has been trying to unload his resort-sized estate in Beverly Hills for almost four years. When it first appeared back in '08, the place was asking $15.9M, but the price has been slowly inching down ever since. Recently relisted at $12.995M, the mansion still stands to make Wahlberg a substantial profit, considering he purchased the place back in 2001 for $4.95M. Not that he needs the money. Despite the stalled sale of this compound, he and his wife began construction of a much larger spread, rumored to measure as much as 45,000 square feet in guard-gated Beverly Park. Where this one sits on 1.73 acres and includes seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, the new one is set to occupy six acres and more than triple the space.
