The actress, whose new film Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out in May, just dropped $3.88 million on a home in the upscale Los Feliz area, Variety reports.

The 3,500-square-foot home has four bedrooms, six bathrooms and views of the Hollywood sign. An open kitchen and family room flow into a step-down living room and media room that in turn open onto the yard, which features a large swimming pool, eight-person spa and cabana.

The master suite includes a fireplace plus a bathroom with a skylight and a balcony with a view. Like many homes in the area, it overlooks a deep canyon.

Johannson sold another Los Feliz home, where she'd lived with then-husband Ryan Reynolds, for $3.5 million in 2012. Variety reports she lost $3 million on a 1930s-era Spanish casa back in 2010.
