Actress, model and animal activist Denise Richards has sold her home in the Hidden Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles for $4.75 million.

That’s a hair above the $4.395 million she paid for the acre-plus estate in 2007 and about $3 million less than her original asking price from two years ago — $7.749 million.

The fenced and gated spread centers on a traditional-style home that was built in 1991. The house has more than 8,300 square feet of interiors that includes six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a formal dining room and an over-the-top kitchen with a pizza oven.

Custom details are evident in the living room, which pairs black walls with blood-red accents. Two temperature-controlled and glass-enclosed wine walls flank the fireplace in the den/tasting room. A chandelier-topped dog hotel with built-in kennels and a pet-washing station is another feature added by Richards.

Outdoors, there’s a lagoon-style pool with two swimming areas, a grotto and waterfall features. A separate, 800-square-foot entertainer’s pavilion holds a kitchen and dining area. Lawns and formal landscaping fill out the grounds.
