Eddie Murphy is known for playing a fictional royal, but his real-life fortune also matches that of a king. Take a look at one of his most lavish possessions - a $20 million mansion.
Renowned actor Eddie Murphy is one of the most successful entertainers of his generation. His meteoric success is evident in his jaw-dropping North Beverly Park mansion.
The 60-year-old actor is a proud owner of the $20 million home that boasts 10 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. He built the mansion on a 3.7 acre lot in 2003.

Murphy purchased the lot for $10 million before spending another fortune to build his home. He happily resides in his massive abode with his fiancée Paige Butcher and his children.
"I am so blessed with my kids. I don't have one bad seed."

His children are equally blessed to have a father who could afford a luxurious home in an exclusive community in Beverly Hills. Not an ordinary house, the mansion features a cinema and a bowling alley.
An active lifestyle seems important for the huge family, judging by their home's amenities. It boasts of an outdoor pool, a basketball court, and a tennis court.
Murphy recently thrilled satisfied fans once again after talking about a third sequel.

Given his past box office hits, it is not surprising Murphy could own such a dreamlike treasure. His level of success even recently earned him an induction into the NAACP Image Awards Hall of Fame.
The award-winning actor has been gracing the big screens in the past four decades. Born in Brooklyn, Murphy burst into the entertainment scene via the comedy sketch show, "Saturday Night Live."

He etched his name in Hollywood with the 1988 box office hit "Coming to America," where he played the hilarious and lovable Prince Akeem from the fictional kingdom of Zamunda.
The much-anticipated sequel, "Coming 2 America," was released digitally in March this year and Murphy recently thrilled fans once again after talking about a third sequel.
The Emmy-winning actor sat down with costume designer Ruth E. Carter to chat about their latest collaboration. Murphy was so pleased with Carter's work he asked her to return for a third film.
Carter made history after becoming the first woman to win an Oscar for costume design for her exceptional work on the critically-acclaimed film, "Black Panther."
