The sale will be the third property he has traded in just over three years.

In November the TV host and author listed the Hollywood Hills house for $2.995 million but got no takers. He took the ranch-like house off the market over Christmas but put it back for sale on Monday January 14 dropping the asking price to $2,875,000.

Last year the landscape gardener and author sold property in Queensland and in 2015 he let go his beloved house in Avalon with its distinctive whale-tail design.

The Backyard Blitz host and Logie winner has been involved in a long-running legal dispute with his former business manager Mike Curnow and last year he put his media and design company into voluntary administration.

The NSW Supreme Court ruled in Mr Curnow’s favour in May of last year after a five-year battle, leading Mr Curnow to ask for payment.

The day before the payment period lapsed Mr Durie put his company, JPD Media and Design, into voluntary administration.

The latest property to hit the market is a mid-century ranch in the US which Mr Durie remodelled, added a home office and turned into a real Outdoor Room retreat.

The three-bedroom home is in the Laurel Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills with feature walls, floor to ceiling glass and a sprawling outdoor area.

Real estate agent Rob Kallick said Durie has completely reimagined the home while preserving its vintage details.

The house has a strong outdoor focus with swimming pool and daybeds, firepit and pavilion in true Durie outdoor living syle.

In 2015 Mr Durie sold his designer Avalon home that he helped create with acclaimed architect Walter Barda. The Plateau Rd house was listed for sale two years after being built, and had a mid-$4 million price guide. However its initial auction day was cancelled because of lack of interest and the striking house with furniture designed by Jamie Durie sold five months later for $3.75 million.

Mr Durie, 48, was awarded the Order of Australia in 2012, came to fame with television shows such The Block and Backyard Blitz and started his career as a male stripper. He has also written 11 books and his property and landscape design shows are broadcast all over the world.
