Cher’s mansion is back on the market – this time with a hefty price chop.

According to Robb Report, Cher lived in the home for over a decade before selling the house to comedian Eddie Murphy in the late 1980s. The 11-bedroom, 17-bathroom estate joins other celebrity homes on the market, including Bruce Willis’ Turks and Caicos estate and a Beverly Hills estate previously owned by Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. The property – listed for $US85 million two years ago – is now listed for $US48 million, just one example of drastic real estate discounts in the past year.

The estate is 15 miles outside of Los Angeles in the Benedict Canyon area, just a 10-minute drive from The Beverly Hills Hotel and other nearby sites.
