LOS ANGELES — Actor Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda, have listed a house they own in Hollywood Hills West at $2.25 million.

The Midcentury Modern-style home features walls and doors of glass, hardwood floors and beamed ceilings. The 2,879 square feet of living space includes four bedrooms and 2.75 bathrooms.

Set in a canyon and surrounded by lush landscaping, the house has a gated motor court and pedestrian gate for added security. A waterfall cascades into a koi pond.

Bateman, 45, is known for a succession of television roles on shows such as “Silver Spoons” (1982-84), “Valerie” (1986-91) and “Arrested Development” (2003-13). His film work includes this year’s “This Is Where I Leave You” and “The Longest Week.” He stars in “Horrible Bosses 2” due out in late November.

The Bate­mans bought the property in 2002 for $885,000, records show.

He’ll no longer host here

Jimmy Kimmel, 46, host of the late-night television show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” since 2003, has sold his home in Hollywood Hills for $2,178,200.

The Hollywood Regency-style house, built in 1947 and updated, sits on a knoll with views that take in the Griffith Observatory, the Hollywood sign and the surrounding hillsides.

A path that leads to the front door crosses over a water element. Inside, vintage details include a floor-to-ceiling leaded-glass bay window and oval leaded-glass windows.

The 3,605 square feet of living space contains formal dining and living rooms, a bar, five bathrooms, four bedrooms and a bedroom converted to a sound studio with a recording booth.

An outdoor kitchen features a pizza oven, a beer keg dispenser and a barbecue with a smoker. The grounds have a swimming pool and a spa.

He bought the house in 2002 for $925,000, records show.

Crow leaves nest

The Grammy-winning Sheryl Crow, 52, has parted with her compound in Hollywood Hills West for $11.085 million. She originally listed it two years ago at $15.95 million.

The 10.28-acre property includes a Spanish Revival-style main house, a Craftsman home and a cottage constructed in the late 1800s.

The remodeled and restored main residence, built in 1924, has a two-story foyer with wrought-iron stair railings, beamed ceilings, a library/wine cellar, a music room, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The stairs to the living room include the original Spanish tiles.

The Arts and Crafts-style house, built in 1909, has authentic period hardware and fixtures, four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The cottage dates to 1885 and contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The singer-songwriter-guitarist lives in Tennessee, where she owns several properties in the Nashville area.

Marvel-ous opportunity

No doubt Marvel Comics’ Stan Lee would like to see some action on the house he has listed in Hollywood Hills West at $3.75 million.

Set off a cul-de-sac, the walled and gated home is being marketed as a build/develop opportunity.

Built in 1945, the existing house has about 2,500 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and six bathrooms, according to tax records. There’s a fireplace in the living room.

The house opens at the back to a swimming pool and spa with a red-brick surround. The fifth-of-an-acre site has cityscape and greenbelt views.

Lee, 91, co-created comic book superheroes such as Spider-Man, the Hulk and the X-Men. He played a mail carrier in “Fantastic Four” (2005). He most recently served as executive producer on the series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

He bought the house in 2006 for $3.599 million, records show.
