Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz has listed her Sunset Strip-area home at $3,695,000.
Described as "Balinese modern," the one-story house has intricately carved entry doors that open to a courtyard with a fountain. Another set of double doors lead to the open-plan interior, which has bamboo floors, skylights and French doors along the back. A living room, a dining area, a breakfast area, an office, three bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms lie in more than 3,300 square feet of living space. An expansive patio with heaters and seating areas surrounds the pool. An outdoor bed sits on the lawn.
Cruz, 36, won an Academy Award for best supporting actress in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008). She starred in the films "Volver" (2006) and "Sahara" (2005) and will play opposite Johnny Depp in the 2011 film "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides."
Public records show Cruz bought the property in 2005 for $3,138,030.
Brett Lawyer of Sotheby's International Realty's Sunset office has the listing, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
