Studio bigwig Chris McGurk’s real estate adventures have entered a new chapter with the purchase of a house in the Hills for $9.65 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The deal comes just six months after the Cinedigm chief ditched his cookie-cutter compound in Beverly Hills.

The brand-new spec home, developed by Thomas James Capital, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and spans about 5,700 square feet. Thomas James bought the 10,800-square-foot lot for $4.3 million in 2014, according to listing agent Steve Frankel of Coldwell Banker.

The Devlin Drive home features a gym, a living room with retractable floors, a media room, 12-foot ceilings and a wine room “big enough to eat a meal in,” Frankel said.

Outside, there is an infinity pool with spa, outdoor kitchen and lounge area.

McGurk was represented by the Agency’s Blair Chang in the off-market sale. Chang declined to comment.

In June, the Hollywood studio veteran, who was the president of Walt Disney Studios and COO of MGM before being named chairman and CEO of Cinedigm in 2011, unloaded a 10,600-square-foot home in Beverly Hills for $16 million. Two months later, he sold his Malibu beachfront home for about $6.95 million.
