Tyler Perry is well known in the entertainment industry for consistently creating hilarious TV shows and movies, but his talents don’t stop there. The actor-writer-director-producer does it all, including strategically buying and listing homes. Less than six months after picking up a Beverly Hills Post Office manse for $14.5 million, the star is looking to make a sweet profit listing it for $16.995 million.Serena Williams purchased a more modest dwelling in the same area last October
, where she and her husband may be nesting with their adorable daughter.While its unclear if Perry made any significant changes to his contemporary 17,245-square-foot house, there’s no question that it’s an impressive estate. Sitting on 4.25 acres of land behind gates, the massive residence boasts 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms as well as a motor court that can hold 30 cars. Full glass walls and a unique angular shape make the exterior one-of-a-kind. Inside, vast open spaces are dramatic yet airy with ample natural light and mountain views. Listing photos mostly display the house without furnishings, but eclectic features like a large crystal light fixture in the dining room send the imagination soaring.A Koi pond and stream meanders throughout the property, while more typical outdoor luxuries like a pool, tennis court, and large dining terrace also have a place.Joshua Altman and Matthew J.
