Eddie Murphy has sold his Californian house for $6.1 million.
The 'Beverly Hills Cop' star shared the 10-bedroom mansion in Granite Bay, California, with his ex-wife Nicole, who filed for divorce in 2005 after 12 years of marriage.
The couple - who purchased the property in 1998 - used it as a holiday home with their five children Bria, 19, Miles, 16, Shane Audra, 14, Zola Ivy, 9, and six-year-old Bella Zahra.
It features a home theatre with an arcade, tennis court, gymnasium, swimming pool, spa and outdoor kitchen complete with a barbecue.
The 11,000 sq ft mansion has views of the nearby Folsom Lake, and is situated on 2.5 acres of land.
As well as 10 bedrooms, the property comes with a detached 5,200 sq ft guest house which has two additional suites.
Nicole - who legally separated from Eddie in October 2006 and is now rumoured to be dating American football star Michael Strahan - has also reportedly put her own house, located in Calabases, California, up for sale for nearly $10 million.
The sale comes shortly after Eddie split from 'wife' Tracey Edmonds. The couple 'married' in a ceremony on a private island near Bora Bora, but split two weeks later before they made their union legal in the US.
The 46-year-old actor also has a 17-year-old son, Christian, from his relationship with Tamara Hood, and an eight-month-old daughter, Angel Iris, with Spice Girls star Mel B.
