Updated, Monday, May 1, 2017 at 2:09 p.m.: Actor Orlando Bloom purchased a modern estate in Beverly Hills’ star-studded Trousdale enclave for $7 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The 4,000-square foot home on North Hillcrest Road was listed at $7.9 million.

It was recently redesigned by renowned architect Miguel Angel Aragones, who designed Hotel Mar Adentro in Los Cabos, Mexico.

It’s the first residential home by the architect.

The property was purchased in 2011 for $3.2 million under an LLC linked to Aragones, according to property records.

Located in the hillside, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home has an open floor plan with a private shower garden in the master suite, a media room and kidney-shaped pool.

Karen Sanchez and Yawar Charlie of Aaron Kirman Partners and Ethan Peskowitz of Westside Estate Agency were the listing agents.

Jason Oppenheim and Graham Stephan of the Oppenheim Group represented the buyer.

Representatives of the brokers declined to comment.

North Hillcrest Road has recently become a billionaire’s playground. Spec home developer Bruce Makowsky sold a property for $70 million to Swedish video game designer Markus “Notch” Persson in 2014, kicking off a craze of builders competing to out-do one another in the area, The Real Deal previously reported. Hostess heir Evan Metropoulos purchased a mansion for $16 million on the same street earlier this year.
