It was confirmed last week that one lucky buyer had snapped up her jaw-dropping Los Angeles mansion.

And Rooney Mara's mystery purchaser has been unmasked as celebrity counterpart Kelly Osbourne, with the daughter of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy shelling out $3.575 million on the Los Feliz property.

Rooney - who has moved in with boyfriend Joaquin Phoenix - has walked away with a cool $125,000 profit after purchasing the mansion from Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgard for $2.9 million back in 2015.

The pad is cheaper than Kelly's last property, with the TV presenter having quietly purchased a luxury condo at the star-studded Sierra Towers building, located on the border between West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, in 2014 in an off-market deal for exactly $4 million.

It isn't difficult to see why the property was an easy sell, given its modern-style design over a sprawling 2,340 square foot, situated on a quiet and idyllic cul-de sac. 

The 32-year-old actress has put her beautifully restored two bedroom, two bathroom home back on the market with a generous price drop that's just shy of $500,000, after purchasing the property from Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgard for $2.9 million back in 2015.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star originally listed her home back in May 2017 for £3.895 million, with the plush pad boasting an open plan layout and incredible views of the city's bright lights and the rolling hillsides of Los Angeles.

Despite it's floor to ceiling windows flooding the airy property with light, fittings like it's stylish fireplace ensure the house maintains a warm and cosy feel.

The kitchen has a large centre island unit and unique pale, seafoam-green cabinetry, with white terrazzo floors running through the house’s gathering areas, including the living room and kitchen.

Rooney has seemingly decided to list the property after moving in with her actor beau, a revelation that Joaquin made during an interview last September.

Despite the pair keeping coy about their private life, Joaquin confirmed to T Magazine that he is living with the actress, and revealed that they favour the simple life.  

According to the Gladiator star, they are usually in bed by 9pm and up at 6am and choose to spend most of their time watching documentaries on Netflix.

The pair - who have been friends for some time - struck up a romance while shooting upcoming movie Mary Magdalene, which sees Rooney in the leading role and Joaquin star as Jesus.

Speaking about why he came aboard the project, he confessed Rooney was part of the decision, revealing: 'I was looking for something meaningful. I was looking for an experience. I was friends with Rooney.'
