Now that her starter San Fernando Valley home has sold, actress and singer/songwriter Emily Osment — the younger sister of “The Sixth Sense” star Haley Joel Osment, and also the daughter of “Minority Report” actor Eugene Osment — has upgraded to a traditional-style ranch house in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Records show Osment has just doled out almost $2.6 million for her new property, which has four bedrooms and a matching number of baths in a little more than 2,600 square feet of single-level living space. Meanwhile, her former home — a 1930s Spanish-style villa in nearby Valley Village — was recently sold for $1.4 million.
An L.A. native, the 30-year-old film and TV actress made her debut in “The Secret Life of Girls” in 1999 when she was just 7 years old. But her big break came when she was cast as Gerti Giggles in 2002’s “Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams” and its sequel, “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.” She’s also appeared in “Sarah, Plain and Tall: Winter’s End,” as well as “Hannah Montana,” “Young & Hungry,” “The Kominsky Method” and “Young Sheldon.”
As for Osment’s newly acquired home, the white wood-shingled and blue-accented structure is nestled amid a secluded cul-de-sac, on a steeply sloping hillside parcel spanning over a quarter-acre of land. Rebuilt from the ground up in 2020, the stylish open-plan interiors are showcased by blonde hardwood floors, high shiplap ceilings, and numerous windows and skylights.
Especially standing out is a living room displaying a fireplace and built-in shelving unit. Around the corner, a fireside dining area abuts a galley-style kitchen outfitted with quartz countertops, top-tier Thermador appliances, a breakfast bar and spacious pantry.
Elsewhere is a bonus room that could easily serve as an extra bedroom, media room or fitness studio, per the listing, along with an expansive master suite adorned with a sitting/office area and walk-in closet, and spa-like bath sporting dual vanities, a soaking tub and glass-encased shower.
Outdoors, the professionally landscaped and terraced backyard is surrounded by trees and greenery, and hosts an al fresco dining patio, a large solar-heated pool wrapped by a sundeck, and an upper-level lounge area and vegetable garden. There’s also a small patio and plenty of room for parking out front.
