Actors Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky, who call Australia home, have swung a pair of deals in Malibu, selling their house for $7 million and buying another property nearby for $3.45 million.

On the sale side, the couple saw a solid return on investment in the deal for their Point Dume-area home. The renovated Victorian formerly owned by Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski fetched $500,000 over the asking price, or $2.2 million more than what Hemsworth and Pataky paid for it three years ago: $4.8 million.

Set behind gates on a full acre, the 6,800-square-foot home has an updated kitchen, a library and an atrium. Front-facing windows and wide verandas take in ocean views.

Five bedrooms and six bathrooms are included on three floors. A three-car garage has been outfitted as a home gym.

As for their new residence, it’s a different vibe and a smaller size than their previous address.

The 4,600-square-foot contemporary, built in 1979, is boxy with tall ceilings and long windows and doors. Rooms open to views of the mountains and ocean.

A decked-out kitchen features commercial-grade appliances, quartz counters and a 750-bottle refrigerated wine cellar. The open-plan space has a home theater/family room, four bedrooms and polished concrete floors that open to a deck with a glass fireplace.

Terraced gardens, mature trees and a greenhouse make up the grounds.

Hemsworth, 32, plays the mythological superhero Thor in the Marvel films and will star in “Thor: Ragnarok” next year.

Pataky, 39, was in last year’s “Furious 7” as well as the two previous installments of the “Fast & Furious” franchise.
