Even for Los Angeles, it's an impressive star-studded cast. Roger Moore owned the Beverly Hills Post Office Spanish hacienda in the '80s and '90s, then Candice Bergen bought it, and now the new owner is Cameron Diaz.

The property was quietly shopped around to agents as a pocket listing for $10.25 million, but the sales price has not yet been reported on the L.A. County Tax Assessor's website. Occupying about 3 acres in a gated community, the compound has a 5,000-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and four bathrooms and a 2,000-square-foot guesthouse with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to online marketing information. Interior details include beamed ceilings, arched windows and arched passageways between rooms.

Brick defines the alfresco dining area and surrounds the swimming pool and spa. Sweeping stairs lead down to an expansive lawn. There are fruit trees, a tennis court and a gazebo beside a stream.

When Bergen bought the property from Moore in 1996 for $3.4 million, it had only 1.5 acres of land, Times archives indicate. Bergen expanded the property and renovated the 1949 estate, which was featured in Architectural Digest.

Diaz, 37, starred in "Knight and Day" (2010), "My Sister's Keeper" (2009) and "Something About Mary" (1998).

The Emmy-winning Bergen, 64, was in "Boston Legal" (2004-08) and "Murphy Brown" (1988-98).

Moore, 82, owned the estate for about a decade. He played secret agent 007 in seven of the James Bond films and starred on the TV series "The Saint" (1962-69).
