Singer-actress Selena Gomez has sold her picture-perfect house in Tarzana for $3.45 million.

The Traditional-style home is entered through a blue stone patio with a fountain. Bay windows flank the red front door, which opens to a high-ceiling entry with a center hall. A coffered-ceiling dining room sits off one side of the hall and a living room with a fireplace off the other.

The two-story, 6,630-square-foot house includes a great room, a card room, a media room, six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The less than an acre of gated grounds contains a guesthouse and a swimming pool with a spa.

Gomez, 22, released “Stars Dance,” her first solo album, last year. She earlier recorded as part of Selena Gomez & the Scene. Gomez was on the television shows “Wizards of Waverly Place” (2007-12) and “Barney & Friends” (2002-04).
