This sprawling estate in Beverly Hills Post Office has the star-studded roster of previous owners that one might expect from this part of town: Cher owned it in the 1980s and sold it to Eddie Murphy in 1988, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The present owner and her now-late husband bought the approximately 16-acre property the 1990s, when it was mostly just the main house; they bought neighboring lots and built out what is now a full-on luxury compound that includes a four-bedroom, Moroccan-inspired guest house, tennis courts, and trails throughout the property. There are also high-end equestrian amenities, including a fancy barn and stables. (Yes, a fancy barn.)

The main house measures about 20,000 square feet. It's in the midst of a renovation—and is being sold that way.

"A new owner would need to build out the kitchens, bathrooms and finishes," listing agent Aaron Kirman tells theWSJ. Regardless of the partially-finished status of the main house, the property is listed for $85 million.
