Cuba Gooding Jr. sells in Pacific Palisades for $9.8 million


Cuba Gooding Jr. has sold his house in Pacific Palisades for $9,828,300. Yes, yes, someone showed him the money, to borrow his line from “Jerry Maguire.”

The nearly one acre of grounds is set up for family fun. A sunken trampoline -- think user safety -- sits in the lawn, there’s a swimming pool and the sports court can double as a lighted roller hockey rink or a basketball court.

The contemporary English-style two-story house features French doors, five fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a media room, seven bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar and upstairs and downstairs laundry rooms – another great idea. The guest suite is detached and there’s a six-car garage/gym.

Gooding, 46, was in the 2013 films "Lee Daniels' The Butler," "Absolute Deception," "Life of a King" and "Machete Kills." He won an Academy Award for his supporting role in "Jerry Maguire" (1996). Look for him this year in "Carry Me Home."

He bought the property in 2000 for $3.5 million, public records show.

David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was the listing agent. Joanne Vuylsteke of Nourmand & Associates represented the buyer.,0,2979860.story#ixzz30t3wQsIH
