The Hollywood Hills home of late horror filmmaker Wes Craven proved to be one in-demand property.

Listed for sale in April by his widow, producer and production manager Iya Labunka, the Midcentury compound quickly sold for $3.525 million — $230,000 above the asking price.

The flat-roofed post-and-beam, built in 1958, has a chain of ownership that also includes actor Steve McQueen.

Found at the end of a gated drive, the home has a Zen-inspired fountain and lush vegetation at the entrance. Inside, the 3,594 square feet of open interiors has clean lines, built-ins and tongue-and-groove ceilings. Walls of glass take in canyon and city views.

A living room with a fireplace, a dining area, an updated kitchen, three bedrooms and three full bathrooms lie within the home. There are two offices, each with a private patio. A separate guest quarters has a private entrance.

Fountains, koi ponds and a saltwater swimming pool and spa fill grounds of less than half an acre. There’s also a three-car garage.

Craven, who died last year at 76, was a prolific director. Among his film credits are “The Hills Have Eyes,” “Nightmare on Elm Street” and the “Scream” series.

He bought the property in 1992 for $1.2 million.
