“The Lord of the Rings” star Elijah Wood has succeeded in his quest to find a buyer for his Santa Monica house. It has sold for $1,758,800.
The Spanish-style home, built in 1924, was listed as a remodeling opportunity. The front door opens into a round foyer with a British brewery cast-iron tile floor. Including a guesthouse with an office attached to the two-car garage, the property has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,130 square feet of living space.
Wood, 30, played Frodo Baggins in the “Lord of the Rings” (2001-03) trilogy. He stars in the TV comedy “Wilfred” (2011-present) and will reprise his role as Baggins this year in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and next year in “The Hobbit: There and Back Again.”
The Middle-earthling put the house up for sale in August at $1.85 million. Public records show Wood bought the house in 1999 from actor Dylan McDermott for $1.45 million.
Roya Kianmahd of Keller Williams in Santa Monica handled both sides of the transaction.
