“Poor Things” star Emma Stone has sold her century-old bungalow in Westwood — a day before she was nominated for an Oscar for her performance.

The actress sold the 3,300-square-foot house 10 days after listing it for almost $4 million at 1711 Ensley Avenue, the Wall Street Journal reported. The buyer and the contract price were not disclosed.

The “La La Land” and “Cruella” star bought the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in 2019 for $2.3 million.

The two-story, Spanish-style house with a tiled roof and sage trim, built in 1926, is in the Comstock Hills.

After she bought the property, Stone added a guest house and renovated the main house, expanding the home while preserving original details such as its beamed ceilings and tiled courtyard. 

More than 100 people attended an open house the first weekend, listing agent Eric Lavey of Sotheby’s International Realty – Beverly Hills Brokerage, told the WSJ. The property received multiple offers. 

Though L.A.’s real estate market has cooled, Levy said demand is strong for such move-in ready homes priced below $5 million. During the third quarter of 2023, the number of L.A. single-family home sales dropped 2.3 percent year-over-year, while the median sale price dropped 5.2 percent, according to appraisal firm Miller Samuel.

In addition to Stone’s celebrity status, the Westwood home generated buzz because houses in this neighborhood trade infrequently, Levy said. 

“To be honest, people were just really enthralled with the property,” Levy told the newspaper. “I just think the property spoke.” 

In 2022, Stone sold her Malibu home for $4.425 million a month after listing it.

Stone, 35, who has a child with husband Dave McCary, had been using the Westwood home when she and her family were in L.A. 

An Arizona native, Stone bought a house in Austin, Texas. She also has an apartment in Manhattan she bought in 2018 for $3.56 million.

In addition to the Oscar nod, Stone won a Golden Globe for her role in “Poor Things.” She’s set to appear in the upcoming Yorgos Lanthimos’ movie, “Kinds of Kindness.”
