Jake Gyllenhaal, who stars in the recently release thriller “Nightcrawler,” has sold his gated compound in Hollywood Hills for $3,262,500.

The single-story home, which was built in 1948, sits on nearly two acres with expanses of lawn, mature trees, a swimming pool and a detached office. There are canyon, mountain and cityscape views.

The 2,826 square feet of living space, crowned by vaulted beamed ceilings, include a central hall, a den, a family room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Gyllenhaal, 33, has starred in such films as “Source Code” (2011), “Zodiac” (2007) and “Brokeback Mountain” (2005). He will be in the upcoming films “Nailed,” “Southpaw” and “Everest.”

He bought the celebrity-pedigree property in 2005 for $2.5 million. Among former owners is Michael Balzary, a.k.a. Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Denny Kagasoff of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. David Gray of Partners Trust Beverly Hills represented the buyer.
