Actress-entrepreneur Jessica Alba has sold a home in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for the asking price of $6.195 million. The Spanish-style residence had been on the market for about three weeks, records show.

The two-story house, built in 2007, sits on about half an acre of grounds and features a lagoon-style swimming pool and a waterfall feature. Recently remodeled, the 5,364-square-foot house has an updated kitchen, a step-down office/library, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. An artistic tiled fireplace draws the eyes in the master suite.

French doors in the common areas lead to a patio outfitted with a pizza oven and an outdoor kitchen. There’s also a self-contained guesthouse with two bedrooms and a kitchenette.

The actress’ father, Mark Alba of Alba Realty, and Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage were the listing agents. Jeanne Valvo of Core Real Estate Group represented the buyer.
