Paris Hilton is expanding.

After unloading her 3,000-sq.-ft. Hollywood Hills home last month, the hotel heiress, 26, is more than doubling her living space with the purchase of an almost-7,000-sq.-ft. Beverly Hills mansion in the gated Mulholland Estates, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The new place, built in 1991, is said to offer more privacy, as well as five bedrooms, 5½ bathrooms and a fitness room that Hilton intends to convert into a shoe closet, her uncle and real-estate agent, Mauricio Umansky of Hilton & Hyland (which is affiliated with Christie's Great Estates), tells the paper.

The Mediterranean-style house on more than three-quarters of an acre was also a bit of a bargain for Hilton: $5.9 million, which was below the original $6.25 million asking price.

Her uncle also says that Hilton looked at more than a dozen properties before settling upon this one, which also offers shared tennis courts.

Her former residence, which went on the market in July for $4.25 million, has been sold to an unidentified buyer who has signed a purchase contract for $4.2 million, says the Journal.

Hilton's new home, in Mulholland Estates

In June, following her release from jail after serving a sentence for violating probation in an alcohol-related driving case, Hilton rented a Malibu beach house.

Meanwhile, Hilton currently is in Toronto, where the annual film festival opened Thursday night.

In the wee hours of Thursday morning she was inside a Queen Street West hot spot called Ultra Supper Lounge, which was promoting Rich Prosecco, a fruity sparkling beverage for which she serves as spokesperson.
