(MCT)—“Twilight” film series vampire Robert Pattinson found a warm body to pay $6.375 million for his Los Feliz home. Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” is the new owner.
The 1922 Spanish Colonial-style house has a formal entry, a library/study, a den, three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 4,026 square feet of space in two stories. Antiqued tile and stone, hand-carved wood and stenciled ceilings maintain a vintage vibe.
The 1.5-acre sloping lot, enclosed by walls, features a lagoon-style swimming pool, waterfalls and fountains. Stunning terraced gardens follow the hillside down to the home, which has cityscape views.
The property was purchased by Pattinson in 2011 for $6.25 million. An earlier owner of the house was Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Parsons also has listed his old Los Feliz house.
Priced at $1.85 million, the 1942 traditional home sits on a hillside with city views. The 2,827 square feet of open-plan living space on two levels includes a formal entry, an office, a breakfast area, three bedrooms and four bathrooms.
There are fireplaces in the living room and dining room and on the entry patio.
The actor bought the home in 2009 for $1.3 million.
Pattinson, 27, starred in the 2012 films “Cosmopolis” and “Bel Ami.” He will be in the upcoming films “Maps to the Stars” and “The Rover.”
Parsons, 40, has won three Emmys and a Golden Globe award for his work on the sitcom, which premiered in 2007. He will be in the upcoming TV movie “The Normal Heart.”
