Mark Wahlberg left LA mansion for Nevada to give kids ‘a better life’

Mark Wahlberg is putting his family first.

The “Father Stu” star revealed he packed up his things and moved his family out of their plush $90 million California mansion in a bid for a “better life.”

Appearing on Tuesday’s episode of “The Talk,” Wahlberg opened up about the “biggest challenge” he faces while having to balance his career and being a family man.

“I want to be able to work from home,” Wahlberg, 51, said. “I moved to California many years ago to pursue acting, and I’ve only made a couple of movies in the entire time that I was there.”

“So, to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us.”

In April, Wahlberg listed his Beverly Hills home for a whopping $87.5 million. He purchased the colossal 30,500-square-foot estate back in 2009 for only $8.25 million.

The mansion features 12 bedrooms and 20 bathrooms along with a home theater, a wine cellar, a five-hole golf course, a tennis court, a skate park and a separate guest house. 

After deciding to leave his flashy property in The Golden State, the “Uncharted” actor secured an impressive estate in Nevada for his family.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Wahlberg purchased a home in Summerlin, located just outside of Las Vegas, for $15.6M in July.

“We came here to just kind of give ourselves a new look, a fresh start for the kids, and there’s a lot of opportunity here. I’m really excited about the future,” Wahlberg said.

Wahlberg revealed he’s planning on building a “state-of-the-art studio” in his new pad, making it “Hollywood 2.0.” What’s more, the actor said he hopes to build “a shoe factory and a factory for Municipal,” the sports apparel company he co-founded in 2019.
