Mike Judge, creator of "King of the Hill," recently purchased a Santa Monica estate.

The star and creator of the animated TV series "King of the Hill" recently purchased a home in Santa Monica, California, for $4.45 million.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Mike Judge, who did the voice of Hank Hill on "King of the Hill" for 13 seasons, purchased the California estate from Richard Taite, who is the chief executive of the Cliffside Malibu rehab facility.

The home, which was built in the mid-1970s, is two stories and has a contemporary Mediterranean style, according to the Times. It has four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, three stone fireplaces and a gym, with 3,700 square feet of total living space. The home also features a detached office, which can be used as a guesthouse.

Richard Taite purchased the property in 2009 for $3.6 million and had the estate originally listed for about $4.9 million, the Times reported. The executive is now packing up to move to another residence.

Judge, who is 49 years old, has won two Emmys for his work and was also the creator of "Beavis and Butt-Head." He also was writer and director of the 1999 film "Office Space."

The average home value in Santa Monica is $806,700, according to Zillow.
