Actors Casper Van Dien and Catherine Oxenberg look to sell in Malibu
“Starship Troopers” actor Casper Van Dien and his wife, soap actress Catherine Oxenberg, have put their marital home in Malibu up for sale at $2.995 million.
The couple, who are in the process of divorcing, bought the house more than a decade ago for $1.6 million, records show.
Set on a bucolic acre above Broad Beach, the Mediterranean villa-style home is surrounded by gates and hedges. Koi ponds, tiered gardens and an orchard filled with various citrus fruit trees fill the palm-topped setting.
The 3,701 square feet of interiors sample from a range of styles and feature reclaimed Douglas fir flooring, Venetian plaster walls and exotic chandeliers. Walls of offbeat art line the walls of the living room, which has a fireplace. A vibrant stone backsplash and counter tops draw the eye in the kitchen.
The upstairs master suite has a fireplace and a walk-in closet for a total of five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. French doors off each room open to a separate garden area.
Outdoors, a large fountain/koi pond acts as a centerpiece for a wide flagstone patio. Elsewhere is a kidney-shaped swimming pool.
Nanette Marchand of Rodeo Realty and Alexander Mayer of Engel & Volkers Westlake are the co-listing agents.
Van Dien, 47, reprised his role as Johnny Rico in “Starship Troopers 3: Marauder” and also appeared in such films as “Tarzan and the Lost City” (1998) and “Sleepy Hollow” (1999). Last year, he appeared on the Web series “Con Man.”
Oxenberg, 54, gained fame on the prime-time soap opera “Dynasty” as Amanda Carrington. More recently, she launched the Body of Bliss, a project aimed to promote sexual healing and education.
