LOS ANGELES — After going on a real estate shopping spree over the last two years, Kylie Jenner of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” has switched into sell mode.

The 19-year-old reality television star recently parted with a home in Calabasas for $3.15 million and now has one of her three homes in Hidden Hills on the market.

The house Jenner just sold was originally built in 2006 but was extensively updated during her two years of ownership.

Ebony-stained floors, designer tile work and crystal hardware are among the new-look details. One of the six bedrooms was refashioned as a “glam room.” Separate walk-in and accessory closets highlight the redone master suite.

A covered loggia, a swimming pool and spa, and a cabana with a bar/barbecue make up the grounds.

In nearby Hidden Hills, a ranch-style house that Jenner bought last year for $4.5 million is now for sale at a $900,000 markup — $5.4 million.

Sitting on more than 3 acres, the 2012-built home has 5,154 square feet of living space. Wide-plank flooring, wainscoting and light hues give the single-story floor plan an East Coast vibe.

Other features include a center-island kitchen, a theater room and a great room with wet bar. There are four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.

Jenner is largely known for her family’s reality series, which follows the lives of her siblings, in-laws and parents. Last year she launched the makeup line Kylie Cosmetics.

Swapping spots: Matthew Perry has purchased a full-floor penthouse in Century City for $20 million, or about $2,146 per square foot, according to real estate sources with knowledge of the sale.

The actor, who is currently selling a home in Hollywood Hills West, purchased the 9,318-square-foot unit in July through a blind trust, records show. It had been listed for $26.5 million.

Found within the Robert A.M. Stern-designed Century building, the residence features floor-to-ceiling windows, a living room with two fireplaces and a center-island kitchen. The formal dining room can seat as many as 25 guests.

Perry, 47, is known for his role as Chandler Bing on the long-running sitcom “Friends.” He is asking $13.5 million for his home in the Bird Streets section of Hollywood Hills West.

Billionaire gets off the beach: Music and movie mogul David Geffen, fresh off the $85 million sale of his Malibu compound, has sold another home in the beach community for $8 million.

The oceanfront home, built in 1956, sits on “Billionaires’ Beach,” a stretch of Pacific Coast Highway known for wealthy homeowners such as Larry Ellison, Eli Broad and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Entered through a gated courtyard, the 1,473-square-foot house includes a living room with a fireplace, a kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Glass doors in the dining area open to a surf-facing deck that overlooks 45 feet of beach frontage.
