The Record: At $5.25M, This Splendid New Kim Gordon House Was the Top Property in Venice for MayAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 657 Millwood, Venice
Sold For: $5,250,000
What: Artist/Designer Kim Gordon’s most recently completed project, this spectacular 4-bed, 4.75-bath compound on a street-to-street lot (within walking distance of Abbott Kinney Boulevard) was the highest-selling property in Venice in the month of May. Top Westside agent Tami Pardee of Halton Pardee + Partners represented the seller; Robin Walpert of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
Soaring spaces and custom steel windows, beautiful details in wood, stone, and hand-troweled plaster are all Gordon hallmarks.
The style is both romantic and evocative; you know you’ve gone somewhere, you’re just not quite sure where, exactly.
What We Love: Gordon’s extensive use of applied stone surfaces gives the property a gravitas and warmth not usually encountered in Venice. Below, an intimate patio off the dining room, flanking a second, smaller living room.
Bedrooms and baths take up the second level. Below, details from the master suite. There’s also a sun-flooded guest/au pair suite accessed via a spiral staircase.
