The Listing For Dennis Hopper's Compound Goes Live
A link on the Real Estalker website let me know that the listing for Dennis Hopper's Venice, California compound is now live. Last week it was announced that the entire property is for sale for $6.245 million. The property is a joint listing by Jade Mills and Jane Gavens, both with Coldwell Banker Previews International of Beverly Hills. A property website has a whole host of pictures taken by Berlyn Photography which are also in the MLS. The pictures show interior and exterior details off the space which includes the main residence designed by Brian A. Murphy, an art barn and three loft-style townhouses created by architect Frank Gehry.
Hopper was an artist and photographer himself and home displays an artist's sensibilities. The main house is constructed of corrugated steel, and the three townhouses are all open, loft-style spaces outfitted with modern furnishings and large art pieces. A garage featuring some of Hopper's motorcycles opens directly into the large art space. The property also includes the original bungalow-style cottage which was built in 1909 and is decorated in a more traditional style as befits its exterior. The lap pool also faces a small open pool house. Overall the compound extends to over 15,550 square feet of living space. The double provenance of this being both an actor's home and a home designed by the world's preeminent starchitect makes this a highly desirable home and a listing full of luscious pictures doesn't hurt.
The entire property can be bought for $6.245 million or the main residence, bungalow, lap pool and pool house are available as one listing for $3.595 million with the three townhouses being sold separately at prices ranging from $750,000 - $1,050,000.
