“Hunger Games” actor Josh Hutcherson wasted no time shedding his Studio City home, selling the place for $1.899 million and finding a buyer after about two weeks on the market. That’s just $900 shy of his asking price, records show.
The buyer is Billy Walsh, a songwriter who’s penned tracks for artists such as Post Malone and the Weeknd, The Times has confirmed.
The place is a bit more traditional than the home Hutcherson sold in February, a treehouse-style Midcentury perched in Hollywood Hills. This property features tiered gardens that approach the gray-colored home, ascending to a covered front porch with whitewashed beams and string lights.

The beams continue inside, topping a dramatic living room with a wall of built-ins. In 1,706 square feet, there’s also a center-island chef’s kitchen, an open-concept dining area with a wine cooler, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Covered in reclaimed wood, the owner’s suite features three closets and a remodeled bathroom.
Out back, a brick stairway climbs to an entertainer’s backyard perched above the property. It includes a kidney-shaped swimming pool and a pizza oven surrounded by a turf lawn and patio.
Besides the “Hunger Games” films, the 28-year-old Hutcherson is known for his film roles in “RV” and “Future Man.” Last year, he had a voice role in the Netflix animated series “Ultraman.”
