A turnkey home owned by actors and home renovators Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters has come on the market in Hollywood at $4.795 million.

Rich in Hollywood history, the 1926 Traditional-style two-story was once the home of early filmmaker Preston Sturges, who was known for directing screwball comedies and won a best original screenplay Oscar for "The Great McGinty."

Set in a Runyon Canyon foothill area, the 7,000-square-foot Hamptons-inspired house is secreted behind mature hedges.

Restored to reflect its earlier grandeur is an 1,800-square-foot great room with the original copper-topped bar and fireplace. Other living spaces include a family room, an updated eat-in kitchen, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. A 1,200-square-foot attached guesthouse has a kitchen, a dining area and a patio.

The rooftop terrace takes in cityscape views.

Renner, 44, has an impressive acting dossier including such films as "American Hustle" (2013), "The Bourne Legacy" (2012), "The Avengers" (2012) and "The Hurt Locker" (2008). He is in the 2015 films "Mission: Impossible 5" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Winters, 41, was also in "The Hurt Locker" and in the 2010 film "Fair Game." In recent years, he has turned to home renovation full-time and runs an interior design firm bearing his name.

The property was purchased in 2009 for $1.35 million. The Connecticut-vibe house is available furnished.

Branden Williams and Rayni Romito Williams of Hilton & Hyland are the listing agents.
