Chevy Chase, who has been planning to move to Westchester County in New York since last fall, has put his Los Angeles area home of a dozen years on the market at about $2.2-million.

Chase, 51, stars as a Seattle-based prosecutor in the just-released movie Man of the House, co-starring Farrah Fawcett. An original member of TV's Saturday Night Live, he has starred in the National Lampoon Vacation films and has won Emmy Awards as a writer and an actor. He produced and hosted a TV talk show in 1993.

Built in 1980, his country Tudor-style home in Pacific Palisades has four bedrooms plus two maid's quarters in nearly 7,700 square feet. The master suite has a sauna and a fireplace.

There is also a two-story guest house with a recording studio a tennis court and pool on the 1-acre grounds.

In December, Chase listed a 5-acre-plus site near his Palisades house at $3-million. The site and house are in a gate-guarded community.

The couple and their three children have homes in the Hamptons and Aspen.

Actor-comedian Eddie Murphy has sold the Beverly Hills, Calif.-area home he bought from Cher six years ago.

Murphy, 33, has been married to model Nicole Mitchell since March 1993.

Murphy first put the house on the market in 1990 at $9-million, less than two years after he bought it from Cher for $6.3-million. He sold the house for about $4-million, including furnishings that he bought from Cher.

The house, on four acres in Benedict Canyon, has six bedrooms, 10 fireplaces and a gym in 10,000 square feet. It also has a motorized roof, which opens up in the center of the house, and a large koi pond.
