E.L. James is putting some of those hard-earned erotica dollars to good use.

The “Fifty Shades of Grey” writer, whose real name is Erika Mitchell, has shelled out $7.25 million for her contemporary five-bedroom fantasy pad in Hollywood Hills, Trulia reported.

The 5,616-square-foot bungalow features a media lounge, stone and hardwood floors, a chilled wine cellar, five bathrooms and of course, a wet bar. The property’s bedrooms are all suites and the master suite has its own terraces. The house was built just this year, according to The Openhouse.

Steven Dubin of Teles Properties was the listing agent.

British-born Mitchell is no stranger to the second home market. She bought a $1.5 million vacation home in the seaside resort of Polzeath in Cornwall, England in 2013. [Trulia]Cathaleen Chen

Correction: An earlier version of this story misstated that the property is in West Hollywood
