Actor Johnny Knoxville -- he of "Jackass" fame -- has sold his three-bedroom, Mediterranean-style villa in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills area for $1,816,000.

 

In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Knoxville's sale of the 2,946-square-foot house at 2481 Hollyridge Drive in the Hills. Records show that Knoxville, whose real name is Philip Clapp, sold the house on August 7, with the deal being recorded on September 26. The buyer is not a celebrity.

Back on July 28, we exclusively had reported on Knoxville's listing of the house, which is at 2481 Hollyridge Drive in the Hills. We assume that Knoxville sold the house as part of the divorce that he has been going through, although we don't know that for sure.

In something of a shocker, Knoxville sold the house for *above* his $1,695,000 asking price.

Built in 1924, the house has three baths, a great room with a vaulted ceiling and arches, a large circular dining room, a redone kitchen with honed marble counters and stainless steel appliances, and a large master suite with a fireplace and an "Ann Sacks"-style bath with a steam shower, according to public records and listing information. Other features include a media room, and a second bedroom/office with an en suite bath, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the gated, 0.21-acre, street-to-street property include a courtyard setting, a grassy yard with gardens, and a large pool, according to public records and listing information.

Knoxville purchased the house in August 2001 for $943,500, according to public records. Check out an online listing sheet for the house -- complete with photos.

For now, at least, Knoxville continues to own another 3,744-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills. We'll keep you posted on any changes to the status of that home.
