Fashion model and actress Amber Valletta has sold her Santa Monica, Calif., home of more than a decade for $5.015 million, or $20,000 over the asking price.

The Monterey Colonial-style house, built in 1927 and awash in colorful details, features a clay-tile roof, blue trim and a garden courtyard. Overlooking the courtyard, which has brick pavers and accents of vintage Mexican tile, is a sun porch.

Some 2,400 square feet of living space, styled by interior designer Ross Cassidy, offers a range of original and artistic features. There are white-painted beams in the living room, and powder blue-hued built-ins and striped ceilings in the library. Horizontal wood paneling and a marble-topped island lend a contemporary vibe to the kitchen.

The original wrought-iron staircase leads upstairs, where the master suite keeps the eye moving with red walls and ceilings lined with hand-painted wallpaper. Including the guest cottage, there are four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in all.

The 42-year-old Valletta has worked as the face of such fashion brands as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Prada and Gucci. Among her film credits are “Hitch” (2005) and “Transporter 2” (2005). She previously had a recurring role on the TV drama “Revenge.”
