Back in December The Detroit News reported 53-year-old comedian/actor Sinbad was having trouble with his finances and owed more than $8.15 million in delinquent federal taxes.
According to the blog, the U.S. Attorney General’s office was seeking the sale of his plush California pad to settle up some of the massive debt. Well, looks like they got their wish.
On Friday the L.A. Times Hot Property section spilled details about the sale of that very home. The property in gated Hidden Hills has all of the amenities you’d expect of a celebrity residence.
For a mere $3 million, anyone can be the proud owner of:
“…the five-bedroom, five-bathroom country estate, which sits on a hilltop amid mature trees on 2.5 acres. There are fireplaces in the formal dining room and an office/family room, 5,064 square feet of living space, a guesthouse with a kitchen, a recording studio, a pool with waterfalls and a barn.”
Public records show Sinbad purchased the property in 2007 for $1,525,000 which means the actor is looking at a nice profit from the sale, But hey, the guy needs to make some money off the deal.
