Actor Steven Seagal is selling his bulletproof mansion in Scottsdale for $3.395 million.
The 8,973-square-foot home at 9325 E. Brahma Road in Scottsdale is featured on TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, which shows 10 celebrity homes on the market across the country.

“The way the house was built, the windows are cantilevered out,” said Eriksen, associate broker and residential luxury advisor for Engel & Volkers in Scottsdale. “When you walk to the edge of the living room, the windows on each side of you slant inward so you feel like you’re standing outside looking both ways. The house itself was built just incredible. On one side, where it’s built into the mountain, it’s almost though you have a garden and privacy and large rocks.”
Even so, she said, the property was built in 2001 and needs some upgrades.
Records with the Maricopa County Assessor’s Office show Seagal’s family trust paid $3.5 million for the property on Oct. 1, 2010.
A team — including the builder Tim Beringer — has been working to ensure that an elevator can be built in the 4-story home, Eriksen said.
“It took us 8.5 months to get it to where we repainted and recarpeted,” she said. “We did that but left the rest the way it was. It’s a gorgeous home. But somebody may want to come in and do their own updating.”
Eriksen said her team put the house on the market about two weeks ago and has been showing it nonstop since, especially to out-of-state buyers flying in to take a look.
The home is about a 15 or 20 minute drive to Carefree and 35 to 40 minutes to DC Ranch in Scottsdale.
“It’s almost at 3,000 feet altitude,” Eriksen said. “The breezes coming through are so much cooler.”
In her 32 years of selling real estate, Eriksen said this is one of the most special properties she’s been involved with.
“By how it is and what it is and just the general feeling of it, it’s got some good mojo,” she said. “It’s priced right. The house is priced right.”
