Jake Gyllenhaal Sells His Secluded Hollywood Hills Home
Going, going, Gone! Jake Gyllenhaal has sold his gated Hollywood Hills house. Gyllenhaal morphed into an A-list actor during his tenure in Hollywood, and off-screen, he’s been a very popular choice for a semi-temporary boyfriend by many actresses and singers, including Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Rachel McAdams and others.
When he’s not stepping out with the hottest young thing in Hollywood, Gyllenhaal holed up in this gated compound on almost 2 acres of land since 2005, when he paid $ 2.5 million for the home. Perfect for staying out of the limelight, the home is located down a private drive and has sensational panoramic views. (See the slideshow below.) Insiders even say the views from Gyllenhaal’s backyard are some of the best in L.A. The lushly-landscaped, estate-size lot has trails and a large, sprawling grassy yard. Gyllenhall had been asking $ 3.5 million for it, Zillow reported.
The one-story home itself didn’t have the modern appeal of some of the newer homes on the market, but that didn’t stop a buyer from stepping in and snapping up the property. What it lacks in modern amenities and of-the-moment trends, it makes up for with charm, space and light throughout. The home also embraces the sprawling acreage and opens up to a large swimming pool and multiple entertaining areas.
When the home first went up for sale in September 2014,The Real Estalker hinted that Jake may have been renting the place out for the last couple years and living elsewhere. He has recently been spotted house-hunting in New York. With his West Coast property pending and the sale about to be final, Jake’s free to make a home on any coast!
Denny Kagasoff of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services held the listing.
