Listed for $3M, the property comes with a recording studio, detached guest-house, and thriving garden.

A chic home once owned by actor and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is now up for grabs in Los Angeles. Tucked away in the Hollywood Hills, the property was designed in 1933 by architect Ralph S. Loring. Over the years, it has attracted multiple celeb residences, with actor Mark Ruffalo owning it from 2004 to 2009, then passing the keys to Deschanel.

A mini-compound at 3295 Bennett Drive has allured many A-list stars throughout the years. The property occupies three lots, offering a half-acre gated oasis in the heart of the Hollywood Hills. Here, a living area in the newly renovated main residence is fitted with a bow-truss ceiling.
