UPDATE: Eddie Murphy

In other New Jersey celebrity real estate news, wildly rich actor/comedian Eddie Murphy has chopped the asking price of his Englewood, NJ estate to $14,990,000.

The 4+ acre Brayton Street estate was originally listed five years ago with an astounding $30,000,000, a price that by December of 2006 was reduced to $22,000,000 and then again to $19,500,000.

The colossal Colonial style beast–known by the cutesy name of Bubble Hill–measures 25,000 square feet and contains 32 rooms with 8 bedrooms, 12 terlits in 8 full and 4 half poopers, an indoor swimming pool with an arched glass roof, two lane bowling alley, a paneled billiard room, full sized racquetball court, a professional recording studio, a carriage house with a home gym, at least three fireplaces, garaging for at least 5 autos, and, of course, an elevator because people this rich do not use stairs.

Bubble Hill is not the only large and lavish estate Mister Murphy has on the market. Back in June of 2007 Your Mama discussed Clove Hill Farm, Mister Murphy's 205-acre spread in upstate New York. At that time, the 5 bedroom and 5.5 pooper property in rural Poughquag, NY was listed with an asking price of $8,995,000. The price tag now stands at a significantly reduced $5,995,000.

As far as we know, Mister Murphy's primary residence continues to be an 18,598 square feet behemoth in the guard gated Beverly Park development in Beverly Hills, CA that records indicate includes a staggering 10 bedrooms and 17 poopers.

Good luck dumping this place for 15 mil. He has still got a sense of humor!

Nice house, but there are a lot of BEAUTIFUL houses for way way less.
Hope, his money manager is better than Nic Cage's.

Down and out in Englewood, NJ.

Now that the Wall St criminals are getting their big bonuses again, he should have no problem selling this now.

After glancing at the photos, I had to look at them very closely as I am sure that Meadow and JJ Soprano must be in this house somewhere.

Sorry, that place looks like First Colonial Savings, complete with a drive-up window out front. Inside, 100% pure DirectBuy. Plus imagine all the dresses Scarlett coulda got outta those curtains.

Does anyone know what Murphy paid for either the NY or NJ pile, and when he bought them?

OOOOO, I loves Mr. Murphy! I want to have another eight of his babies: bang, Bang, BANG!!! We'd put one of our new bambini in each of his over-ten-thousand-foot houses! They wouldn't go to waste at all.

That house and I know it well was built by a mobster, there use to be an old house up there owned by the Sykes family...old Englewood money and then this Mob guy bought it had all of those bricks imported from Georgia he later got indicted on Tax fraud and the family lingered for a few years before selling to Mr. Murphy for a song.
The home use to have a Bronze Sign on it saying Bubble Hill that is now gone since he is trying to sell to a more gentrified crowd. It sits seconds from the George Washington Bridge but the taxes are crippling. If he brings it below 10mill he will sell it.

People hate on NJ so much, but in all of the USA, pretty much all the content of this blog is from LA, NYC, and Jerz.
