Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is selling his ‘starter home’ in Northridge, California for $729,000. Purchased by the budding actor on February 10, 1999 for $439,000, the now bonafide star is ready to part with the 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,538 square foot home at 19356 Vista Grande Way if someone can “show him the money” and come in close to his $729,000 asking price.
It’s pretty clear Cuba hasn’t made this home his main priority in the past few years. The listing photos suggest that the home needs some major upgrading and even the listing language says that the home “needs TLC” and will be sold “as-is.” This is the perfect purchase for someone who wants to take on the renovations in order to live in a home with a pool in a family-friendly neighborhood.
Like any celebrity with hit after hit, Cuba upgraded his living situation and moved into a 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 6,753 square foot mansion in Pacific Palisades that he purchased on May 31, 2000 for $3,500,000.
In case you were wondering, Cuba’s listing agent isn’t named Jerry Maguire, it’s actually Bernie Leibovitch of Rodeo Realty.
