Someone alert TMZ! Harvey Levin has JUST  listed his ultra-private retreat in Hollywood Hills West for $5.3 million … The Times has learned … by studying the new listings on the MLS.

The nearly 3,000-square-foot Spanish-style home has some cool features for the founder of a celebrity news website: gates and hedges that ensure no one is “looking in” from above, according to the Multiple Listing Service post.

Other features include a two-story step-down living room, an office, three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a partially finished basement. Outdoors there’s a swimming pool and spa, lawn and flagstone patio area.

The house has been listed for lease for as much as $20,000 a month during Levin’s ownership. Public records show he bought the house in 1998 for $950,000.
