James Franco Sells Sunset-Strip House For $3.3M (PHOTOS)

The LA Times reports that James Franco of "Spider Man" and "Milk" has just sold his Sunset-Strip Spanish Style villa for $3.3 million. The smoldering actor, who is to play Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming film "Howl," first purchased the 4000 sq. foot sanctuary in 2006 for $2.325 M and is making a killing in this transaction, despite the economic climate. With scenic city views, vaulted and beamed ceilings, and a custom marble bathtub, this three-bedroom private gated property is an idyllic combination of cozy and chic, and a perfect reprieve from the Hollywood bustle.
