Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker is chasing sales in Hollywood Hills West.

After listing a two-house compound for about $6 million late last year, the famed actor is now offering the two adjacent properties separately.

The smaller of the two, listed for sale at $1.5 million, is set on a tree-filled lot of about an acre. The three-story house has 2,725 square feet of living space with two living rooms, a dining area, a bonus room, five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

French doors open to an enclosed patio. Up above, a third-floor balcony overlooks the leafy lot.

The larger of the pair, a Mediterranean villa-style home, is listed for $3.499 million. Built in 1998, it features white walls, reddish-tone wood floors and terraces off most rooms.

Within roughly 5,500 square feet of interior are five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a loft gallery. A double staircase anchors gives with to a vaulted-ceiling common area. There are fireplaces in the formal living room and family room.

About three-quarters of an acre of grounds are enclosed by hedges and contain a swimming pool and spa.

Both homes have separate gated entrances and views extending from the cityscape to Santa Catalina Island.

Kelly Sutherland of Coldwell Banker Residential holds the listing for both homes, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

The 56-year-old Whitaker took home a best actor Academy Award for his role in the 2006 film “The Last King of Scotland.” More recently, the Texas native appeared in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Black Panther.”
