'Avenger' Jeremy Renner sells Old Hollywood home for $4.3 million

'Avenger' Jeremy Renner sells a renovated home with Old Hollywood history

Actors and home renovators Jeremy Renner and Kristoffer Winters have sold their latest project in Hollywood Hills for $4.3 million.

Built in 1926, the traditional-style house was once home to early filmmaker Preston Sturges, who helped define the screwball comedy genre in the 1930s and won an original screenplay Oscar for “The Great McGinty” in 1940.

Renovated and restored, the 7,000 square feet of living space feature an 1,800-square-foot great room with the original copper-topped bar and a fireplace -- a nod to its Old Hollywood grandeur. Two stories of living space  include a family room, an updated kitchen and a formal living room with a marble-lined fireplace.

There are a total of five bedrooms and six bathrooms, while a detached guesthouse adds another kitchen, a dining area and three bedroom en suites in 1,200 square feet of space.

Outdoors, a rooftop terrace takes in views of the cityscape and landscaped grounds with a fountain feature.

The property previously sold in 2009 for $1.35 million. It came on the market in February for $4.795 million and was offered furnished.

Branden Williams and Rayni Romito Williams of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, were the listing agents. Stephen Resnick, also of Hilton & Hyland, represented the buyer in the sale.

Renner, 44, is known for his role as Hawkeye in the Marvel cinematic universe. Among his other film credits are “American Hustle” (2013), “The Bourne Legacy” (2012) and “The Hurt Locker” (2008). Renner will reprise his role as William Brandt in the summer blockbuster “Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation,” due out in August.

Winters, 41, runs an interior design firm that bears his name. As an actor, he has appeared in “The Hurt Locker” as well as the 2010 film “Fair Game.”
