Actor Ben Koldyke, known for television roles on “Masters of Sex” and “Mr. Robinson,” has trimmed the asking price for his clipped-gable Craftsman home in Santa Monica to about $3.4 million. That’s half a million less than what the home originally hit the market for in February, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

The blue-hued home, built in in 1923, sits half a mile from the water in the Ocean Park neighborhood. Past a covered front porch and a clipped gable roof, the white-walled interior includes a living room with a brick fireplace.

Hardwood floors and old-school chandeliers top the open floor plan, which includes a dining area, a modern kitchen and a family room with a wall of built-ins. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,276 square feet of living space.


A rooftop deck caps the property, taking in views of the coast. Down below, a curated yard ideal for entertaining offers plenty of green space and a patio with a fire pit.

Robin Walpert of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing. The exact asking price is $3.399 million.

Koldyke bought the home nine years ago for $1.45 million, public records show.

The 50-year-old actor has had recurring roles in the sitcoms “How I Met Your Mother,” “Work It” and “Back in the Game.” More recently he appeared in the HBO shows “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Silicon Valley.”
