Dennis Hopper’s Compound Relisted and Re-priced


Double lots in Venice are somewhat rare, so a compound on five adjacent lots is practically unheard of. And apparently, difficult to sell, even if it comes with architectural pedigree like Frank Gehry. The late actor and artist Dennis Hopper’s home hit the MLS about a year ago and even went into contract in December. Now Curbed LA reports the contract fell through and the compound is back on the market, this time with a listing price even HIGHER than a year ago. That’s chutzpah.

The property, built in 1987, features several separate buildings, including a 4,800 square foot main house by architect Brian Murphy, three two-story condominiums by Gehry, a lap pool and pool house, plus a 100-year old guest cottage. The entire property is a sprawling 15,500 square feet of land.

The main house features a curving aluminum and steel exterior and according to the listing is “an ode to the industrial look.” Last summer, the original asking price was $6.245 million, which the brokers seem to think was underpriced since the new listing is now $6.495 million.
