Actor Johnny Galecki, best known for his role on the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, is shopping at his Spanish-style Hollywood Hills mansion for $11.9 million.
The list comes as no surprise. Galecki began looking for a tenant for the site last year and put it up for rent at $45,000 a month.
He paid $9.2 million for the property in 2015, becoming the newest actor to occupy the home. Ben Stiller owned the home for over a decade, during which time he oversaw an expansion and restoration by Roman & Williams, a design firm that worked with Stiller on the set of his 2003 film Duplex, before major projects for the Ace Hotel in Brooklyn and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
In 2011, Stiller sold The Green Sanctuary for $7.325 million to action star Jason Statham, who passed it on to Galecki four years later.

The loggia. (Hilton & Hyland)
Originally built in 1929, this private villa is tucked away behind walls and wooden gates on half an acre of tropical landscape. Pathways wind through the grounds and lead to fountains, arches, gardens, lawns and a mosaic-tiled swimming pool. Behind the house a loggia connects to a guest house.
The living spaces ooze Spanish style. Dark beams hang above colorful tile floors in the common spaces, which include a living room with a dramatic wall of built-ins and a whitewashed brick kitchen.
Elsewhere are six bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a movie theater, an office, and a game room in 7,415 square feet. Another highlight is the speakeasy pub, where tin ceilings tower over a spacious bar.
