Television and film director Rich Moore, whose credits include “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Zootopia,” has bought a home in the Whitley Heights area of Hollywood Hills West for $2.11 million.

The Mediterranean-style  house, built in 1998, sits in a small, gated enclave with a Moroccan-tiled swimming pool and spa, lawns and an attached two-car garage.

Inside, the 3,500 square feet of living space includes a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, a country-style kitchen, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Arched doorways, coved and beamed ceilings and hand-painted tiles are among the interior details.


Balconies off several of the bedrooms take in views of the Hollywood sign and downtown L.A.

The property was listed at $1.995 million prior to the sale, records show. It previously changed hands more than a decade ago for $1.1 million.

Tim Swan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties was the listing agent. Michele Downing of Partners Trust Real Estate represented the buyer.

Moore, 53, won Emmy awards for his work on the animated series “The Simpsons” and “Futurama.” He is co-directing the sequel to “Wreck-It Ralph.”
