With an upcoming marriage, model-turned-actress Amy Smart is taking a turn on the Beverly Hills real estate market and has listed her home for $1,399,000. Perhaps “The Butterfly Effect” star is looking for something in need of a remodel; her fiance is Carter Oosterhouse, the “hunky 6-foot-2-inch carpenter” who got his break on TLC’s “Trading Spaces”, and now has his own show on HGTV.
Smart made her major break into film opposite James Van Der Beek in the teen comedy “Varsity Blues” in 1999 and starred in comedies like “Road Trip,” “Starsky and Hutch” and “Rat Race.”
The good-looking pair announced their engagement this April after five months of dating.
Smart purchased her Beverly Glen home in 2002 for $699,000. She appears to be looking to get some cash back on her purchase; her listing price is $700,000 more than her 2002 purchase price. While median Beverly Hills home values are higher than most places in the country, they have been impacted by a 3.7 percent decrease year-over-year.
Smart’s traditional-style home was built in 1949 and includes 2,000 square feet of living space. Smart (or perhaps her handyman fiance Oosterhouse) has upgraded a few spots in the home, including the kitchen and bathrooms, outfitting the kitchen with a new Wolf range and Sub-Zero fridge.
The 2-bed, 2-bath home is on the smaller end for celebrity real estate but each bedroom has generous closet space and refinished hardwood floors as well as a fireplace in the master suite. The home also includes a brick patio, glass-walled conservatory, lush landscaping and pool.
The listing is held by agent of Angela Roessel of Hilton & Hyland.
