The “California Gurl” is saying ciao to her Hollywood Hills home.

Pop star Katy Perry sold a property on Mulholland Drive to restaurateur Michael Chow, according to real estate blog Yolanda’s Little Black Book. Chow paid more than $9.4 million.

Perry owned two properties next door to each other, adjacent to the Runyon Canyon trail entrance. Chow purchased the larger of the two, which includes a Spanish-style house with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and more than 7,400 square feet.

It was long owned by Walmart heiress Sybil Orr, who sold it to oil heiress Aileen Getty, who later purchased the smaller house next door. Perry paid Getty $11.2 million for both properties in 2013.

The larger, 2.33-acre property is walled off, and includes a gated driveway with a security guardhouse, a guest house, fitness building, outdoor amphitheater and a pool.

Chow is the co-founder of the Mr. Chow restaurant chain, which started in London and later expanded to Beverly Hills, New York, Miami, and Las Vegas. He owns a 30,000 square-foot mansion on South Mapleton Drive in Holmby Hills, which was listed in October for $78 million.

Perry has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, and owns a $19-million estate in the Beverly Hills Post Office enclave.

She also was involved in legal drama over a convent near Los Feliz. She paid $14.5 million for the location, but the nuns rejected the offer and sold it to a different buyer.

Perry was later cleared to acquire the eight-acre estate, but the transaction hasn’t officially closed. [Yolanda] – Gregory Cornfield
