Actor Harrison Ford has sold his compound in Brentwood for $8.195 million.

The Colonial Revival-style house, designed by Gerard Colcord and built in 1951, sits at the end of a long gated driveway. On more than three-quarters of an acre with mature trees and three detached guest suites, the two-story main house has been restored and remodeled in keeping with the original design.

Features include paneled walls, four fireplaces, extensive built-ins and a bomb shelter. There is a swimming pool and a detached workshop.

Ford, 69, played Han Solo in the original "Star Wars" trilogy. He also starred as adventurer Indiana Jones in that film series. A fifth installment is reportedly in the works.

Last year Ford starred in "Cowboys & Aliens." His movie "42," about baseball's Jackie Robinson, will be released in 2013.

Public records show that the actor bought the property in 1983 for $1 million. He put it on the market in April for $8.295 million.

David Offer of Prudential California Realty in Brentwood represented Ford and the buyer.
