The sale of Jared Leto’s home in Cahuenga Pass, California, has ended on a high note. The Oscar-winning actor and musician has sold the property for $2.05 million, or $51,000 over the asking price.

Built in 1955, the midcentury spread was previously owned by producer-director Michael McQuarn. Jimmy Durante, the late comedian, is rumored to be another past resident.

The two-story house has about 4,000 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a recording studio. The white-walled living room features ebony wood floors and a wall fireplace. The master bedroom opens to a balcony overlooking the backyard.

Outside, tropical foliage surrounds a stone-rimmed swimming pool, a patio, a built-in barbecue and a fire pit. Concrete steps lead from the pool to an outdoor living room.

Leto, 45, won an Academy Award for his supporting role in the film drama “Dallas Buyers Club” (2013). Last year, the actor starred as the Joker in the summer blockbuster “Suicide Squad.” He is set to appear in the upcoming science-fiction film “Blade Runner 2049.”

He bought the house more than a decade ago for $1.65 million, property records show.
