Within a three-week time span, Larry Hagman’s longtime mountaintop home in Ojai, Calif., and his Santa Monica penthouse both sold — each for $5 million.

The 43-acre Ojai spread, befitting “Dallas” oilman J.R. Ewing, had been listed in 2009 at $11 million.

The Mediterranean-style estate was designed and built for Hagman and his wife, Maj, in 1992. The off-the-grid property has solar systems providing energy for the main residence, the well and the caretaker’s home, while creating surplus power. ‘

When Hagman installed the system in 2003, his annual electric bill went from $37,000 to $13.

Set behind iron gates, the 17,516-square-foot main house features murals, an indoor pool and spa, seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The compound includes a two-bedroom guesthouse, a separate office, an outside pool connected by streams to two ponds, a private helipad and more than 200 avocado trees.

In Santa Monica, the two-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse is in a 10-story building constructed in 1963 and includes 3,029 square feet of living space. The contemporary-style condo has three parking spaces and views of the ocean.

Hagman, who died last year at 81, entertained generations of television viewers as astronaut Tony Nelson on “I Dream of Jeannie” (1965-70) and as Ewing on “Dallas” (1978-91). He reprised his role as the Texas oilman on the current TNT series
