The Hollywood Hills home of celebrity photographer Cliff Watts has already found a buyer, just two months after hitting the market for $4.5 million.

The 2,754-square-foot home, built in 1953,  has four bedrooms and three bathrooms with a guest house overlooking a large Koi pond and porch, which is surrounded by bamboo, Variety reported.

It once belonged to conservative nuclear arms strategists Albert and Roberta Wohlstetter. The couple even had a phone line directly from their house off Woodstock Road to the Oval Office, according to Variety. The husband-and-wife team commissioned architect Josef Van der Kar, known as a card-carrying Communist, to design the house.

The Wohlstetter family owned the property until 1999, when they sold it to Watts for $850,000. The identity of the new owner was not clear.

Watts has worked with a number of celebrities including Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie and James Franco.  [Variety]Subrina Hudson
