Writer-director James Gunn of "Guardians of the Galaxy" film fame has sold his home in Studio City for $1.875 million — just shy of his asking price of $1.895 million.

The traditional two-story came up for sale in March and had an offer pending after about 10 days. Gunn bought the property in 2002 for $875,000, property records show.

Built in 1956, the 3,825-square-foot house was recently updated and features light hardwood floors, raised ceilings and fireplaces in the kitchen, living room and den. A formal dining room, a breakfast nook, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms are among the other rooms.

Outdoors, landscaped grounds include a raised patio area, lawns, palms and mature trees. A swimming pool and a detached office/studio complete grounds of about a third of an acre.

His first foray into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Guardians of the Galaxy" (2014), grossed more than $770 million worldwide.
