Martin Lawrence

Actor Martin Lawrence listed his 23,816 square foot mega mansion in Virginia for $8.5 million. The grand estate sits on 120 pristine acres in the rolling hills near historic Purcellville.

The 5 bedroom, 10 bath mansion is a sportsman's paradise. The leisure wing includes a bowling alley, basketball court, home movie theater, indoor swimming pool with spa and vaulted ceilings throughout.

The master bedroom, which is accessible by a private staircase, is larger than some houses. The property includes 2 large ponds with a gazebo and enough land for an equestrian facility.

The 52-year-old father-of-3 purchased the spread in late 2005 for $1.25 million, according to If Lawrence sells the property, he will pocket a cool $7.5 million profit.

Lawrence and his wife of 8 years, Shamicka Lawrence, began dating in 1997. She is credited with saving him from a life of drug and alcohol abuse.

  • RealATLPeach36

    A lot of house...

  • SaltineCrackers

    A whole lot of basicness. I'd be surprised if he was able to get more than 5mil in its current state.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I wonder just how much has even been there ????

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    What is th point in having more bathrooms than bedrooms?

  • stav

    I like the fact that he has plenty of land, the house however....I'm not impressed!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Waaay to big!

  • stav

    I use to think about this as well, but the only logical explanation I could come up with is he has a lot of guest.

  • Rayne

    Looks like a bachelor pad.

  • PhillyFacts

    Looks Empty

  • Malcom Flex

    Nice house but the notes/insurance/security would be too much except for a person worth 50 million on up.

  • tintin

    I like Martin and his sloppy looking a$$

  • Sid

    I wonder if they would take stamps?

  • Bonsai

    With all those amenities you don’t ever have to leave the house. ?

  • nyla00


  • nyla00

    I wonder if ole Marty Mar is downsizing. ?

  • Tish


  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    The house seems cold and empty inside

  • Coy little wink

    It looks empty and dated...good luck ?

  • Shira Harding-James

    I love the simpleness of it.
    I wouldn’t pay 8 million though

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!! If you find out lemme know. Pookie and nem are looking to move...

  • Dahl

    Very vanilla...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Is it dated? I really can't tell unless its from the seventies with a bar and wood paneling or something like that....

  • Quitedeliteful

    This house is waay to big. Squatters could be in there and he wouldn't even know it...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Sid

    lol bbqs everyday and I mean single day,just because

  • Quitedeliteful


  • SandraRose

    3 are half bathrooms. 7 are full bathrooms.

  • SandraRose

    Whoever buys this would probably tear it down and rebuild.

  • Queen B


  • angrysolo

    ceilings look mighty low

  • stav

    More than likely!

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    It's so manly...and decorated in the 90s.

    Very nice, though.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Martin at one time made a LOT of money. In the days when they were paying actors who were TOP Box Office draws $20 Million a movie. The studios don't do that anymore. So I assume he is starting to liquidate his assets.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Located in the richest county in America. He gonna get his asking price or not much below it

  • Coy little wink

    The decor mostly...also the wood floors.. newer trend is dark wood...

    There are no pics of the kitchen or bathrooms so I can't say much else ?

  • Kimberly King

    Lovely home (on the outside). He looks cute in that picture... which lets me know it's an older pic from the 90's.

  • Soon2BWife

    It looks big and cold seems like it has not been looking lived in in awhile.

  • Soon2BWife

    Very! The tan/beige is a give away. Gray is the new beige. The trim around the windows is oak, trim around windows is white now.

  • We Can Do This

    For 8.5M, I will have to live in Miami. I need that sunshine to give me that vitamin D on the regular.

  • the guest

    Looks like an 8.5 million dollar time share or AirBnB rental. Sparse, bland, with amenities.

  • Cali

    8.5 Mil? Sure.

  • Peace

    Space and Privacy sold this home. It will again. But he'll be in the same boat as 50cent trying to sell it at that price now. 8milly, good luck with that Marty Mart

  • Quisha Laureen

    I grew up there...not sure why someone would want to live there...its slick boring...but its the richest county in the U.S!! We def. got that check

  • OfficialDime

    He hasn’t been married to Shameika for years. He has a whole wife of 2 yrs that’s a esthetician.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Let down. I hate ugly mega mansions. Beverly Park would never, huh Martin?

  • Chrisian88

    He’s still banking off syndication of Martin. He was also a producer of that show and his films are syndicated on tv a lot too.

  • Nathan Hastings

    Impending divorce?

  • Durbhad CC

    Lol. guess kat williams told the truth martin really does have a basketball court in his house but he didn’t mention a bowling room. Zamn

  • Indies beauty

    If I had the funds, this would be a no... it's low key basic and country.

  • SoulfulLove

    so no matter what wing of the home you are in you are close to the bathroom. Less travel and nobody has to go in a bedroom to use it.


    My thought exactly. Ole Marty Mar knows what he is doing.

  • Blue

    Can somebody let me hold 8.5 million real quick? I'll pay you back friday.

  • Blue


  • Jordan’s Memory

    Who knew he lived on this side of town. I thought he would be living in California somewhere and got as far away from where he grew up as he could. That house is beautiful the closet, pool, bowling alley Yes!!!!! I could definitely have some fun filled nights with family and friends.

  • Anunnaki

    I got 5.00 on it


    I love Martin he seems cool and down to earth!!!


    $5.50 ????happy friday!!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Same here...looks kinda boring ?

  • NorthDeKalb

    I’d rather have a condo in the heart of the city than a mega mansion out in the sticks.

  • Blue

    lmao. Thank u

  • Kanyade

    Lord, huge rooms. Love the basketball court, though.

  • Kimberly King


  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    He's not married. He's currently engaged though.

  • Blue

    lol. You said straight like that

  • ????? Kari ?????????

    Wow very nice.

  • Raymond Isiah

    Martin needs to let me get it for $200.000, he can get another one!! lol

  • Trace da Ace

    nice home!! Hell that is 2 hours from me.....never knew he owned property in VA.....but he is going to have to drop that price if he wants to sell it....wonder how much he is charging to rent it out? #vacahome

  • PL?Y R&B

    That was a smart investment.

  • interestingconcept1

    While that inside is okay the house has no symmetry, built with different materials, ugh.

  • Kimberly King

    Lol no other way to do it

  • Karen Brady

    Tisha said they are re-booting Martin. That's all I know.

  • Mister Fantastic

    That house looks like crap. Looks like they used interior decor off the set of "Martin".

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    It looks like it could use a bit of an update

  • parisjok

    how in the hell could it be so many negative comments on this black man's beautiful mansion and huge land surrounding it? this is a product of his hard work that comes from his GOD given talent that he was able to even buy this home.

    99.9 tenths percent of folks making negative remarks can not buy anything even close to this kind of property no matter how many overtime hours they work on their jobs. no matter what I would love to live, pray, play and entertain in this huge home where family and friends could join me. better go ask somebody

  • Michael Washington

    He looks good...go Martin...big house tho...I'd be scared?

    Smaller house on same property ?

  • Michael Washington

    U hate us ?

    I don't care how much over you so......
