Elijah Wood sells up in Santa Monica

Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood is selling the home he bought from actor Dylan Mcdermott.

Elijah Wood has placed the Santa Monica, California property he bought in 1999 on the market for $1.85 million.

The Spanish-style home was built in 1924 and comes with a guesthouse, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Due to the ongoing housing crisis, Elijah Wood won't be making much of a profit from the sale - records, obtained by the Los Angeles Times newspaper, show he bought the home for $1.45 million 12 years ago.
