'Cougar Town' actor Brian Van Holt picks up a tidy dwelling in Venice

Brian Van Holt of “Cougar Town” has bought an updated cottage in Venice for $1.705 million.

If the Spanish-style house is short on space at 1,329 square feet it has abundant character. Built in 1924, the single-story home features barrel ceilings, a dine-in kitchen that opens to patio space and an enclosed porch that serves as an office nook.

Beyond the arched doorway are an open-plan great room with a fireplace, a bonus room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. An additional bedroom is in the converted garage.

Tiered patios, a conversation pit, a play area and lawn make up the yard.

Van Holt, 45, played the houseboat-dwelling Bobby Cobb during the 2009-to-2015 run of "Cougar Town." Last year he starred in the miniseries “Ascension.”

The property previously changed hands in 2003 for $549,000.

Robin Walpert of Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent. Solo Scott of Re/Max Estate Properties represented Van Holt.
