Northern Ireland actor Jamie Dornan has sold his sprawling Los Angeles home for around £2.3m amid reports he is now primarily based in Europe.

The Fifty Shades star bought the glass house back in August 2016, and after an unsuccessful attempt to rent it out for £10,000 a month, has put it up for sale.

The Los Angeles property is listed on the website of luxury estate agent The Agency with a sale price of $2,995,000 (around £2.3m).

While the price is below the $3.19m it had earlier been listed for, the Co Down actor is still set to net a profit on the home, having purchased it for around £2.2m two years ago.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal ahead of the sale, Jeff Kohl - who sold the property on behalf of luxury estate agent The Agency - declined to comment on why it was being sold, but did say Dornan is now primarily based in Europe.

The 2,510 sq ft residence has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, with the master bedroom opening out onto the pool.

Located on Nichols Canyon Road in the Hollywood Hills, it was originally built in 1959 and underwent an overhaul under the eye of architect Val Powelson in the Sixties.

The property's listing reads: "Natural light from the distinctive glass box atrium floods all common areas of the house, while the atrium's water feature resonates tranquillity.

"Further epitomizing the indoor-outdoor California lifestyle, floor-to-ceiling glass doors open directly to the expansive pool and spa area with a substantial adjacent deck and fire pit, perfect for entertaining."

Jamie Dornan is married to film composer Amelia Warner, and they have two children.

The 36-year-old is set to have a third child with his wife, who he affectionately calls 'Millie'.

The couple are already parents to daughters Dulcie (four) and two-year-old Elva.
