The buyer is actor Simon Helberg of "The Big Bang Theory."
The restored 4,179-square-foot villa has four bedrooms and 41/2 bathrooms. A fountain stands in the tiled front courtyard of the Mediterranean-style home, built in 1927. Inside, the dramatic two-story entry has wood floors and a vaulted ceiling. The step-down living room features a fireplace and wood-beamed ceiling.
An eat-in kitchen, with stone floors and a center island, overlooks courtyards and the backyard, which has a swimming pool. A sweeping staircase leads to the master bedroom wing, the other bedrooms, an upstairs family room and outdoor terraces.
Mueller, 34, co-starred this year in the Paris Hilton reality show "The World According to Paris." She was on "Entertainment Tonight" in 2008 and 2009.
Sheen, 46, had starred on the sitcom "Two and a Half Men" since its 2003 launch, earning a reported $1.8 million per episode in 2010. He was fired earlier this year. His television and film credits include "Spin City" (2000-02) and "Wall Street" (1987).
Helberg, who recently sold a home in Los Angeles, is one of the five central characters in the ensemble comedy "The Big Bang Theory," which started in 2007. The 30-year-old starred in "Derek and Simon: The Show" (2007).
Public records show the property was purchased for $2.575 million in 2007, before Mueller and Sheen's 2008 marriage. After the birth of twin sons in 2009, they listed the house at $3.697 million. Weeks or months may pass before sale prices appear in public records.
A quiet sale, not a big bang
Actress Kaley Cuoco, who costars as the neighbor of a pair of socially inept physicists on "The Big Bang Theory," has sold her home in Sherman Oaks for $822,500.
The Spanish-style house was built in 1937 but has been updated. Features include distressed hardwood floors, French doors that open to a covered patio and interior arches between living spaces. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,171 square feet.
Cuoco, 25, has starred on the sitcom since 2007. The show has been renewed through the 2013-14 season.
She was also a regular on the series "Charmed" (2005-06) and "8 Simple Rules" (2002-05). She is in "The Last Ride," a film about country singer Hank Williams set for wide release in January.
The property was purchased in 2005 for $1.355 million, according to public records.
Stephanie Vitacco of Coldwell Banker was the listing agent. Eric Lieberman of John Aaroe Group represented the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
No longer the boss in Malibu
Actor Tony Danza has sold his longtime Malibu beach house for $8 million. It came on the market in July at $9.1 million.
The 1949 traditional main house, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, sits on 50 feet of beachfront. The entire second level of the home is a master suite including a sitting area, fireplace and deck. The property also has two detached guest suites for a total of about 3,000 square feet of living space.
Danza, 60, won TV fans with his roles in the sitcoms "Taxi" (1978-83) and "Who's the Boss?" (1984-92). The former professional boxer has since turned to Broadway, playing Max Bialystock in "The Producers" (2006-07).
