Glorious Venice Compound by Sebastian Mariscal, $3.7MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Arranged around a series of open spaces and with a profound Japanese influence, this astonishingly simple, award-winning Venice compound by internationally known architect Sebastian Mariscal is on the market for the first time since it was built in 2013. Venice has a decades-long history of innovative (and often great) domestic architecture, and this stands out as one the town’s quietly grand masterpieces.

What We Love: Complete simplicity is in the details, like the door frame below, with concealed bronze hinges and the steel screw details on the horizontal planking.
The master suite has a pair of walled decks– one off the bedroom and a second off the bath with an outdoor shower and an adjacent exercise room.
More: Go to the property’s dedicated site for a comprehensive look at the property, for additional details, images and floor plans. Represented by architectural specialists Brian Lindner, AIA and Rick Grahn at Compass. Below, one of the upper level bedrooms open to a planted roof.
