Scarcely one year ago, Hollywood actress Jameela Jamil and her longtime partner James Blake dropped an impressive $6.4 million to buy a hulking mansion sited atop L.A.’s famed Mulholland Drive, directly overlooking the entirety of Hollywood.
The English couple—she famous for her roles in films and TV show projects such as “The Good Place,” “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” and most recently, “Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin,” he a Grammy-winning musician—are already moving on from their still-relatively-new Hollywood Hills home, having flipped the place back up for sale with a $7.2 million ask. Rick Ojeda of Carolwood Estates holds the listing.

Clinging precariously to the side of a nearly sheer cliff, the house appears to be a relatively humble, single-story structure from the street, but it drops down mullet-style to four full levels out back, encompassing a nearly 7,000 square feet of mansion-sized living space. There are a total five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms on tap, per tax records.
Originally built in 1989, the home’s dated architecture was given a thorough contemporary makeover by Dalinger Designs just prior to Jamil and Blake’s purchase. Today, the hillside structure is described in the listing as “Villa de Vistas, an extraordinary Contemporary Mediterranean compound … with an earthy flair.” And indeed, the home’s views are unquestionably extraordinary, with walls of glass spanning the entire back of the residence and framing unstoppable vistas of nearby canyons and distant city lights.
A convenient elevator ferries residents and guests throughout all four of the home’s level. The front door opens into a vast main living area with a wood-paneled kitchen—naturally complete with commercial-grade stainless appliances—and an adjoining fireplace-equipped living room and indoor/outdoor living space. Just below that, a 2,000-square-foot master retreat is loaded with amenities, boasting a fireplace, lounge area, spa-style bathroom and a walk-in closet bigger than many studio apartments.
Below the master are various guest bedrooms, all of them equipped with ensuite full bathrooms. The home’s lowest level is recreation-themed, sporting a movie theater, gym and a wellness center with a sauna. Out back, a pool and spa overlook the aforementioned views. Other amenities include state-of-the-art home automation and surveillance systems, plus a three-car garage and a lounge space that could be converted into a recording studio, per the listing.
In addition to their for-sale Hollywood Hills manor, Jamil and Blake also own a spacious second home in Georgia, down in the Atlanta suburb of Fayetteville.
