HULK HOGAN HAULS FAMILY MANSION OFF THE MARKET

Hulk Hogan's mansion, once on the market for $25-million, is no longer for sale.

Not only that, the Hulkster said Wednesday he really didn't leave the area.

But Hulk, what about that classic episode of Hogan Knows Best where your family packs up the dogs, ferrets and critters to move to Miami Beach?

"That's just TV,'' said the 53-year-old wrestling legend, also known as Terry Bollea.

Hogan said he's been staying at his Clearwater Beach house and has been taping the show, which is on its third season, in Miami Beach. He bought a $12-million house there in April.

Hogan said he did initially plan to sell the 17,000-square-foot Belleair home to make his life easier. "I was begging someone to give me $25-million for the house,'' he said. "I'm so spread out.''

But earlier this month, Hogan and his family decided not to sell the Belleair house after all.

"They came back for the holidays and said this is home and they love the area,'' said Coldwell Banker Realtor Marcia Ellis, who listed the Hogan's home and sold the original Belleair property to the Hogans 14 years ago.

"It's the home the kids grew up in and they just wanted to hang onto it,'' said Scott Acord, senior director of publicity for VH1.

The Hogans bought the Belleair property, which included an older, Spanish-style house, in 1992 for $2-million.

They had the house demolished and spent four years building the two-story Belleair mansion, which looks like a medieval French chateau. The home overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway and has a guest house, boathouse, pool and waterfall, maid's quarters and four-car garage.
