The former home of actor Mark Wahlberg in Beverly Hills, Calif., is hitting the market for $28.5 million.

The seller is Don Rufus Hankey, founder of the real-estate development company Knight Development Group and son of the auto-services mogul Don Hankey. The younger Mr. Hankey said he bought the house in 2018 for $12.4 million.

Mr. Wahlberg bought the property through a trust in 2001 for nearly $5 million and remodelled it. The “Departed” actor sold it in 2013 for $10.3 million, according to public records.

The main house on the roughly 1.7-acre property was built around 1984. It measures approximately 9,000 square feet with five bedrooms. The property also contains a two-bedroom guesthouse, an outdoor sports court, a putting green, an outdoor kitchen, and a pool with a grotto and waterslide. A roughly 2,900-square-foot, detached gym with a boxing ring dates back to Mr. Wahlberg’s time.

“It had a lot of land, it was a nice house, and it had some special amenities you don’t see in many houses,” Mr. Hankey said. His wife, Skye Hankey, a real-estate agent with Premier Realty Services, is the listing agent on the property along with Myles Lewis of Compass.

The Hankeys spent about four years renovating the property, they said. To enhance the main home’s canyon views, they knocked down walls and installed more windows. They also redid the floors and ceilings, updated the appliances and added smart home technology.

Outside, they redid stone work and landscaping and repaved the driveway and sports court. They also knocked down an old pool house, and added an outdoor kitchen and a pool bathroom, Ms. Hankey said.

Mr. Hankey said he and his wife considered moving into the home but instead decided to list it after renovations were completed this year. Their primary home is in Florida, they said.

The home is located in a gated community called Oak Pass Road in the wealthy ZIP Code 90210. According to Redfin, the average sale price in 90210 was $7.15 million last month, up 21.7% from the same time last year.

Mr. Wahlberg, who stars in HBO’s “Wahl Street,” now lives outside Las Vegas.

Judge Blocks Effort to Auction Graceland

Family of Elvis Presley was fighting the attempted sale, alleging fraud

A Tennessee judge on Wednesday blocked an allegedly fraudulent attempt to auction off Graceland, the former Memphis home of music legend Elvis Presley and a major tourist destination in the state.

Elvis’s granddaughter, actress Riley Keough , says a company that had planned a Thursday sale was fake and trying to defraud the trust that owns Graceland.

Judge JoeDae Jenkins in Chancery Court in Shelby County, Tenn., granted the injunction to stop the auction, according to a court clerk. The court had granted Keough a temporary restraining order on the sale last week.

The auction was initiated by an entity called Naussany Investments & Private Lending. It had filed a public notice for a foreclosure sale in Tennessee, alleging Lisa Marie Presley , Elvis’s only child, defaulted on a $3.8 million loan it made to her. The group said it now owns Graceland because Presley defaulted on the loan.

Presley, Keough’s mother, controlled the Graceland trust until her death in January 2023 . Keough then took over as trustee.

Lawyers for Keough said Naussany’s loan documents are forgeries, and the firm “appears to be a false entity created for the purpose of defrauding” the trust that owns Graceland, Presley’s heirs or any purchaser of Graceland.

Elvis Presley Enterprises, which manages Graceland, has also said Naussany’s claims were fraudulent. “There will be no foreclosure,” said Elvis Presley Enterprises spokeswoman Alicia Dean . “Graceland will continue to operate as it has for the past 42 years.”

Keough’s lawyer declined to comment.

Naussany Investments and Kurt Naussany, named in the complaint as acting on behalf of the entity, couldn’t be reached for comment. A phone number listed in the complaint didn’t work, and emails sent to associated addresses weren’t answered. The Wall Street Journal couldn’t separately find contact information for a Kurt Naussany. A lawyer for the entity couldn’t be identified.

The Graceland complex in Memphis, which includes an exhibition center and a 450-room hotel, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

Elvis bought the property in 1957, when he was 22 and an ascendant star. He died in 1977 at the age of 42 and is buried on the Graceland property. Graceland opened to the public in 1982.

Lisa Marie Presley’s mother, Priscilla Presley , reached a settlement in 2023 with Keough over who would control the trust. The settlement came after Priscilla Presley challenged a 2016 amendment to the trust filed by Lisa Marie Presley that removed her mother as trustee.
