Heath Ledger Hollywood Hills House for Sale, Again (photos!)

1The late-Heath Ledger’s Hollywood Hills home is back on the market at $3 million. The new owner hopes that second time will be the charm as the anniversary of Ledger’s tragic death approaches.

Ledger, who starred in “Brokeback Mountain” and one of the Batman movies, died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in Jan. 2008. He was 28.

The Australian actor’s estate sold the house to the current owner in 2008, who apparently never really lived in it. Ledger bought the place from talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in 2005.

The house is a contemporary on a secluded hillside location with an open floor plan and polished concrete floors.

The property is only a little more than half an acre but a large deck, outdoor screening room, grill and fire pit are among the top features.

The property also has a Zen-like manicured garden studded with Sycamore trees.

By Hollywood standards, the house is modest; it has only two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It also has a brick fireplace, beamed ceilings and has an open design.

The estate sold the property for $2.5 million, just as the California real estate market was crashing.

The owner reportedly freshened the property and put it back on the market in November 2009, asking $3.695 million.

But it sat at that price for almost seven months before it was pulled in June 2010.

The listing notes the home’s celebrity status.
