Orlando Bloom and wife Miranda Kerr are cutting ties with their Hollywood Hills home, where they fell victim in 2009 to Los Angeles' infamous "Bling Ring" burglars.
The actor listed the home, located high in the hills near Mulholland Drive, for $4.5 million on Thursday. According to the official listing, double walnut doors open up to a home with an open floor plan, fireplace and custom kitchen. There are four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, and the master suite leads into the backyard. Outdoors, there's a pool with a swim machine and spa, as well as a built-in barbecue and loggia to take in the city views.
The home sits in a gated compound surrounded by ferns and other foliage, which along with the security cameras, make the property a hidden fortress.
The Bling Ring teens broke into the property in July 2009 and made off with rolex watches, designer dresses and purses. In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Bling Ring member Nick Prugo said the group was drawn to Bloom's home because one of them wanted "Victoria’s Secret model clothes" (Bloom was dating Kerr at the time).
Bloom's security cameras caught the group of teens making multiple trips to and from his home, carrying away large bags of his belongings.
In 2012, when director Sophia Coppola decided to turn the Bling Ring saga into a movie, Bloom turned down Coppola's request to do a cameo in the film.
"She asked me to cameo in the movie, but I said it was too close to home for me to want to be involved," Bloom told Britain's Hello! magazine.
Real estate blog Redfin.com, which first reported on the listing, notes that Bloom had been renting out the home since Aug. for $16,500 a month. Now it appears that Bloom is looking to make a permanent break from the property. He initially purchased the home in 2007 for $$2.75 million, according to public records.
