Big Bang Theory actor Johnny Galecki has just sold his Spanish-style retreat in the Hollywood Hills for $11.1 million, making it the fifth-highest-priced sale in the neighborhood so far this year.
Galecki, who tried to rent it out for $45,000 a month last year, made a profit on the property. Records show he paid $9.2 million for the home in 2015.
Enveloped in a tropical landscape and hidden behind high walls and wooden gates, the lush property has become a hotspot for Hollywood stars over the years. Ben Stiller owned it for over a decade and transformed it into the individual hacienda it is today and sold it to Jason Statham in 2011 for $7,325 million.
The residence offers a world of its own with a 1920’s villa, guest house and loggia surrounded by arches, courtyards, fountains and lawns on half an acre. The main house oozes Spanish style: stucco outside and colorful tiles inside.
