Jaume Collet-Serra and his new home on Sunset Plaza Drive

Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra’s new house is anything but scary.

The contemporary-style abode in Hollywood Hills West, which he bought for $5.05 million, features an open-plan living area and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that open to to patios and balconies throughout the 3,000-square-foot home.

Last listed at $5.3 million, the 1938-built abode contains four bedrooms and five bathrooms, spanning 3,000 square feet, the Los Angeles Times reported. The renovated house also has a breakfast nook, chef’s kitchen and a projection screen in the living room. Outdoor entertainment space includes a pool, barbecue and decking.

Coldwell banker’s Ginger Glass had the listing. The buyer was represented by Jonathan Massabran of Capital Investment Realty Group.

Collet-Serra is behind the 2005 remake of “House of Wax,” as well as the films “Unknown” and “The Shallows.”
