Amy Smart and Carter Oosterhouse find a spot with a view in Malibu


Actress Amy Smart and her husband, DIY television personality Carter Oosterhouse, have bought a spot near the Carbon Beach section of Malibu for $2.9 million.

The ranch-style house sits on about three acres of grounds and overlooks Billionaires’ Beach, a famous stretch of coastline known for its ultra-rich residents.

Built in 1948, the home has beamed ceilings, three fireplaces, three bedrooms and four bathrooms in nearly 3,500 square feet of space. Another fireplace sits outside next to the swimming pool.


Outdoors, there’s a two-bedroom guest house and a detached garage. Large swaths of lawn and mature trees complete the coastal setting.

The purchase, which closed in December, was made through a blind trust. Carol Bird of Partners Trust Malibu was the listing agent. Branden and Rayni Williams of Hilton & Hyland, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, represented the buyers.

The 40-year-old Smart has television credits that include “Felicity” (1999-2001), “Smith” (2006-07) and “Justified” (2014). More recently she appeared on the series “Maron” and in the horror film “Patient Seven.”

Oosterhouse, 40, gained fame as the carpenter on “Trading Spaces” from 2004 to 2007. He has since hosted home-related shows including “Million Dollar Rooms” and “The Great Christmas Light Fight.”
