Orlando Bloom has sold this home in the Hollywood Hills. Nourmand & Associates
Actor Orlando Bloom has sold the Los Angeles home that was famously targeted by the "Bling Ring," a group of adolescent thieves portrayed in a recent film.
Mr. Bloom sold his home, located in the Outpost Estates area of the Hollywood Hills, to an undisclosed buyer for $3.9 million, according to sources with knowledge of the deal. The closing was last week.
Built in the 1940s, the roughly 3,250-square-foot house has four bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms. The gated estate sits on ¾ of an acre with a view of the Los Angeles skyline. It has a terrace, vegetable garden, pool and spa.
The "Lord of the Rings" actor bought the house in 2007 for $2.75 million, according to public records. It was later burglarized by the "Bling Ring," a group of adolescents who used the Internet to locate celebrity homes. Their story was made into a book and the 2013 film "The Bling Ring."
The home was initially listed last year for $4.5 million; the price was then reduced to $3.995 million. At the time of the sale, the home had been taken off the market.
Venessa Blair of John Aaroe Group represented the seller, and Rochelle Atlas Maize of Nourmand & Associates represented the buyer.
Mr. Bloom's representatives didn't respond to requests for comment.
