Nearly two months after Johnny Depp won his bombshell defamation case against Amber Heard, the actress has quietly sold off her California desert oasis, The Post can confirm. 

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom Yucca Valley estate, which sits on 6 acres of land in California, sold off-market. 

Property records show, on July 18, the home traded hands for $1.05 million. 

New Jersey-based Rickard and Carol-Jeanette Jorgensen, who also own property in Nevada and are founders of Jorgensen & Company LLC, are the new owners, The Post has learned.

It is unclear how the Jorgensens discovered the off-market home or if there’s a direct connection to Heard. The Post has reached out for comment. 

Spanning over 2,450 square feet, the previous listing described the estate as “the chance to own a once in a lifetime property.”

Boasting rocks, mountains and desert views, the compound comes with a 110-foot engineered bridge, which leads to a mountainside gazebo.

Features include solid iron front doors, a kitchen with a double griddle stove and wiring for for the whole-home surround stereo system.

The primary bedroom comes with dual walk-in closets and grand stone dual sinks, plus a soaking tub.

Meanwhile, the garage spans some 1,200 square feet.

Heard, 36, purchased the home for $570,000 in 2019. She is walking away with a hefty profit. 

But considering the $8.3 million she was ordered to pay to Depp after being found guilty of defamation by the jury, every penny helps. 

Overall, the “Aquaman” actress was asked to cover $10 million in compensatory damages, plus $350,000 in punitive damages.

After the counter-lawsuit she filed, in which Depp was ordered to pay $2 million and Virginia’s cap on damages, Heard is left to pay $5 million in total — money she says she does not have. 

And she might now be kicking herself for that. 

Newly unsealed court documents now show that Heard walked away from a divorce payout that could have run tens of millions of dollars.

Documents obtained by The Post show that Heard denied requests from lawyers to seek half of Depp’s $33 million he made filming the fourth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” — since it was made while they were married.

In an email submitted to the court, Heard wrote of her decision not to pursue $16.5 million that she was being “amazingly true to [her] word, that this is not about the money.” 

The email exchange never made it to the trial, since a judge refused to let that evidence be admitted during the defamation trial.
