‘Walking Dead’ actor Jon Bernthal gets top dollar for Venice cottage

Actor Jon Bernthal of “Walking Dead” and “Fury” fame has sold his storybook cottage in Venice for $1.95 million -- $55,000 over his asking the price of $1.895 million.

Bernthal and his wife, Erin Angle, bought the house in 2010 for $1.012 million.

Built in 1926, the renovated country English home is distinguished by a steep roofline, a curving staircase and a breakfast nook.

The home’s 1,874 square feet of space features formal living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Curved doorways, original wood floors and a wood-burning fireplace are among the period details.

French doors open to a covered patio and a fire pit, set off by vibrant landscaping. Elsewhere is a built-in barbecue.


Tami Pardee of Pardee Properties was the listing agent, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Mark Andrew Smith of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.

Bernthal, 38, is known for his role as Shane Walsh in “The Walking Dead.” He has also appeared in the crime noir TV series “Mob City” as well as the Netflix original series “Daredevil” as the Punisher.

Among his film credits is “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013), “Fury” (2014) and the upcoming “Sicario,” due out later this year.
