"Gulliver's Travels" star Jack Black has purchased Flea's Los Feliz-area home for $5,965,000, Redfin.com shows.

Sitting on a flag-shaped lot of more than half an acre, the two-story 1915 house had been renovated by Flea (a.k.a. bassist Michael Balzary) of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who added a Topanga Canyon ambience. The kitchen was infused with a hippy vibe.

Seven bedrooms and three bathrooms are included in the home's 6,500 square feet of living space. There is a swimming pool, a large motor court and solar roof panels. Flea, 48, bought the house in 2008 for $3.85 million, according to public records. He also owns a home in Malibu.

Black, 41, plays the title role of Lemuel Gulliver in the comedy adventure, which was released on Christmas Day. The film follows his starring role in "School of Rock" (2003), his voice work in "Kung Fu Panda" (2008) and his part as half of the rock duo Tenacious D.

The property was sold outside of the Multiple Listing Service as a pocket listing.
