The Lowdown: The Boston Celtics logo in the middle of the sports court was the first clue that the seller of this house might hail from the Bay State, and he does: until last week, it belonged to Mark Wahlberg. Marky Mark took time out of his busy pants-dropping schedule to sell off this secluded estate with five bedrooms in the main house, a two-bedroom guesthouse, and "formal dining and living rooms fit for entertaining all with beautiful canyon views and dramatic sunsets, a grand 35mm digital projection theater/screening room, a detached professional two story gym with a boxing ring, and a sports court fit for basketball, tennis, or racquetball. The property also has a putting green, a lavish waterfall pool with a grotto, and cabanas." We're sure he's relieved he won't be making yet another appearance on our year-end celebrities who couldn't sell round-up.

The Lowdown: This house was designed in 1924 by John De Lario, Hollywoodland's lead architect, and it's really rather grand. "Highlights include the breathtaking two-story entry, formal living room, stately dining room," a stone-walled kitchen, big motor court, lawns, and a pool. Looks like it's been recently renovated, helping to make the seller a tidy profit: it last sold in 2008 for $5.49 million.
